First, my Fall into Fall Giveaway post has reached 285 comments as of this morning! That's just 15 comments away from a 3rd giveaway being added. I've been working on putting the giveaway prize(s) together so stay tuned.
And it's time for me to admit something. I am completely overwhelmed by the shear number of comments that have been left so far. It is my greatest desire to answer each of you back personally but I'm not sure if I have to stamina to do it. So I hope you will forgive me if you don't get a reply back. Just know I wish you the best of luck in the draw...and will happily respond to your comments left on any other post.
Now I want to show you a Schnibble I finished this morning. Here is Darcy made with two charm packs of Renewal by Brannock & Patek. Renewal has to be my favorite B&P line that they've designed. I can't even begin to count all the yards I've bought of this line.
For those of you that have been following me for a while...remember my Snowmen A to Zzzzz? When I last posted about this WIP...January 26th!...I had completed A, B, C, D, E & F, G, and O. Well I finally pulled it out again and managed to get another block done yesterday evening. Here is H is for Holly...
Onto new projects...the ADD in me LOVES starting new projects! Here are the fabrics for a project that I'll begin cutting today...a mix of Luna Note by Three Sisters and others from around the shop. These lovelies will become another Carrie Nelson quilt...one from Miss Rosie's Spice of Life Quilts. Can you guess which one?
Now for the project I'm most excited to start! A while back Jill of The Quilt Rat posted about dying black and white prints...an idea that would never have occurred to me...not in a million years. Well after a exchanging a few emails back and forth with Jill, I'm taking the plunge and going to try it. I and my BFF Donna, together, purchased a bunch of fat quarters and 28 different Jacquard Textile Paints.
The plan is to dye this weekend in the backyard while the weather is still warm here. We're still in the mid 80's here. For those of you that might be interested in trying this out, Jill also has a great tutorial for gradated dyeing. It's worth checking out.
Ok...I'm off to start cutting out the Luna Note quilt and to start putting together my braid quilt. I've been dragging my feet for two weeks now and that braid quilt NEEDS to be completed...for my sanity.
