Totally random- read this in the news and thought it was too funny... it's 3/3/09- Happy Square Root Day everyone! :) :) :)
OK- back to regularly scheduled programming...
March 13-14-15 I am retreating! Vicki hosts a retreat at a local Christian camp twice a year. I LOVE this retreat! We have so much fun, stay up till all hours, have fabulous food, and sip a little wine now and again... I am already lining up my projects:
Isn't this bag fabulous? I plan to make 2 of them. I think I may be committing a serious Amy Butler faux pas, though... I am not using Amy Butler fabric! But I really love my fabric:
They are all Michele D'Amore fabrics, except the brown with blue dots- that's a Michael Miller. But they go together so well! One will be my purse, and one will be my knitting bag. I found some great knitting needle rolls on Etsy- aren't they awesome? And they coordinate with my bag fabrics very nicely!
Another thing I will be making is a quilt for my cousin. I promised her a quilt when she graduated high school... 2 (or is it 3?) years ago! I just never found the right fabrics for her until now!! These are the "Posh" by Chez Moi for Moda. It's all cut out and sorted into blocks- I am using the "Meadow Lane" pattern from Heather Mulder Peterson. I have made this pattern before (here and here). I plan to get the top done at the retreat. I know I can do it- I made the "Amy's Piquash" top at the retreat in November- and that was queen-size. This one will be twin-size!
And finally (and randomly) I bought a bunch of ribbon at Michael's yesterday. I am in all these swaps, and you are supposed to send little gifts along with the mini-quilts and fabrics you send! I just didn't have any stuff like ribbons, buttons and stickers hanging around the house. So I've been stocking up when I see stuff on sale. I especially like the cupcake ribbons!
This is my 90th post since starting this blog... be on the lookout- I am planning a fabric giveaway for my 100th post!!
