First of all, Maria Esther sent me this wonderful pincushion along with some ribbon and a handy bead sorter. She included a great post card from her home in Costa Rica – Mucho Gracias Maria Esther!!
It was a big (leap day) sale weekend at the quilt shop and I went twice! On my first visit I picked up 29 fat quarters for $29! It wasn’t hard to find 29 and I filled up my little basket quickly. On my second visit I picked up some yardage and an new tool for 29% off. I’ve had fun playing with my new ruler. As you can see I didn’t get one of the triangles quite right – I kind of like the imperfection of it. The other fabric (pink/peach/green) is for a table runner that the ruler is supposed to be handy for – I’ll see if I can follow the directions, there was one made up at the shop in the same fabric and it is really pretty.
I’m getting a late start on the SAL for Where My Heart Blooms. I’m going to use Carrie’s Threads on this and do it over 1 – at least that is the plan. I hope to get a few stitches in tonight. We have a bunch of college students coming over tomorrow afternoon so I need to prepare some snacks. They are going to help get some equipment ready for an upcoming missions trip.
Bye for now!
