Travelling Treasures , Quilt Along
Jenny at http://www.elefantz.com/ has received her Travelling Treasures parcel from dear Melody, decided what she would like to keep, and also added a few new goodies. You can see pictures on her blog. Wow, the parcel has changed SO much since I posted the first one. It is very interesting to watch it evolve.... Jenny has announced her winner as Debra at http://outbackcrafter.blogspot.com.au/ . I have emailed Debra to congratulate her on her win and we should see a new winner coming sometime in the first week of July, good luck!
The girl went to work this morning. No puddles, yay! I did set the alarm to let her out earlier this morning and also let her out later last night too. Just have to remember they are each different.
It was our first weekend together and she stayed very close to me. I sewed 152 blades for Happy Dance Quilt and the girl was under the table with her head on my left thigh as I sewed. She seemed lost not going to work for 2 days and just wanted to be touching me. She is so sweet, my heart melts.
I have sent an email this am to book her in for Daycare on Sunday. I am looking forward to our Brissie bloggers stitching day and I am not allowed to leave the girl alone for more than 3 hours.
It will be a fun day for her too, playing with the other dogs from her original home.
I am joining in Aiming for Accuracy Quilt Along. Check out the link, if you like. This one has no pressure, just fun. The block instructions will be free until October, so plenty of time to work it out.
Part of joining in requires mention in a blog post, so here it is.
Friday, dear De came over and we went through my fabric (again)...we do it often LOL.
I like how the designer gives info for using yardage OR fat quarters. The directions suggest 24 fat quarters, so..
I already knew I wanted to use a lovely cream yardage I have for the black areas in the sample, and also that I have plenty of purple in all shades of fat quarters. Once we got looking though, we saw more choices beyond lavender-purple.
See that stripe fabric near the top centre? It has a nice range of colours to pick from. We used that as the "anchor" and chose fabrics from there. I don't know if I have ever used yellow in a quilt, but I will be soon! I am looking forward to this project and quilting along with others too. Although I have made many quilts, this will be my very first quilt along. Maybe you would like to join in too? xx debbie
