Today I finished my first project for the year. "Love Is" was made completely from scraps. The final measurements are 45 inches by 65 inches. It will be a great quilt to snuggle under come wintertime. This quilt remained on my sewing table all last year. There is something about the start of a new year to get you motivated. I stitched in the ditch on the squares and around the edge of the cats and girls. I used a blue floral print for the backing which I had in my sewing room stash.
Yesterday I received my parcel from Heidi. It was my prize for being the winner of December's Friday Night Sew-In. I was overwhelmed with what I got,lots of lovely material and a Purple Thang and the most beautiful card which shows three friends stitching. The Purple Thang is a smart little tool that helps you turn out corners and holds things while you sew,it has many uses. I can assure you this will be used quite a bit in my sewing room. There are 89 people signed up so far for this month maybe you will be number 90.If you join in you will be sewing knitting or whatever you choose with people all over the world,how cool is that.
Tomorrow I will have to see what I will be doing on Friday night. I have a few UFOs that need doing but I am thinking of making a table runner.
