Little by little the hexies are getting done for Handful of Scraps – 3 more to go! and then I need to take the time to attach them all – I just might take this with me to my sisters to work on when we are sitting around – by the way she came through her surgery great – the brain tumor was not cancer thank goodness – we didn’t think so but so glad it is official. She should be leaving the hospital and going to her son’s house around Sunday and start therapy – has to work on her speech and her fine motor skills – but over all doing well and expected to make a full recovery. When I get out there maybe she will be ready to start taking short walks to start building up her strength again.
The quilt is filling in nicely. I might prep a few of the baskets to take along too – haven’t a clue how much sitting around time there will be. Seeing the snowman at the bottom of the screen reminds me to get a frame made now that the Christmas rush is over and forgot all about it – well need to this weekend maybe. I am linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict today and Forth Worth Fabric Studio and Crazy Mom Quilts.
This part of the Postage Stamp quilt was worked on Wednesday night.
Two boxes added to the donation pile — no I don’t do garage sales – too much work and we live out in the country and do not get enough stopping by to make it worth while – I tried it a time or two when we first moved here and wasn’t worth the trouble – easier to pack it all up and cart it off. I might fill one more bag this morning but don’t know if I will bother – it involves trying on a dozen pair of jeans and sweats to see what fits and what doesn’t – somehow you have to be in the mood for that!!
Don’t miss the End of the Year Sale at Craftsy. All sorts of supplies are now on sale, check out the new Boundless line of fabric – solids $5.60 a yard – I love their bright white and have been getting it instead of Kona Cotton – a little more of a savings on it and it feels pretty much the same. Kits, fabric, notions, yarn – it is all there – Robert Kaufman flannel on closeout in the Sewing Fabric section (not in the quilting fabric) I think at $4.40 a yard I got some for pajama pants? Grab a cup of coffee or tea and have fun browsing from your chair in your pajamas. I am so tempted to go back in to the site and see what to get – but with the remodeling I really shouldn’t!
Sale through Saturday the 31st at midnight! Click on the links to get you there – thanks.
