A Free Stitchery BOM.....

has just started on Willowberry Designs. It's a beautiful stitchery and only 10 blocks to make a lovely quilt. The January design is up now,
so hurry and get it before the February one goes up. I'll have to go over to DD's and take back all my old cross-stitch supplies. I have 2 or 3 colors of floss now, but I had to buy a cheapie hoop to start another stitching BOM. But with 2 BOM's to follow, I think I need to have my good stuff back. She's not using it anyway, so it will save me lots of money.

We've started an Easter/Spring Table Runner/Topper Swap on my Yahoo Group, The Quilted Table. The group is a spin-off of the Stashbuster Group. We're trying to challenge members to make a runner or topper each month. Then we'll have lots of nice things for ourselves or gifts all ready made when we need one. It's a good way to get a head start on Christmas gifts, too. This is the first swap I've ever run, so I'm glad it's a small group. So far we have 11 swappers in 3 countries. Signups close Feb. 1st and I'll email swap partners on Feb. 3rd. Then we have til March 26th to mail our runner/topper so that it gets to it's new home by Easter. It should be a lot of fun.

This afternoon I made a big pot of Chili for supper tomorrow and sloppy joes for today. I should have done all the cooking on Friday, then I'd have been set for the weekend. I've been doing a lot of ironing and cutting this weekend. Cut my Happy Blocks, cut fabric for a lap quilt for me, cut up squares for TWO Valentine hangings, and cut the appliques for my St. Pat blocks. Phew! I'm all cut out! Tomorrow I'll start sewing. Yayyyy!

Until next time....

Happy Quilting,
Sharon and Katie
