(1) bright colored fabrics
(2) the new moon
(3) sandwiches made on baguettes
I've been a fan of those tiny little slider sandwiches, especially if they're turkey burgers, so I started looking for the slider buns but I couldn't find any. For over a year. A regular dinner roll cut in half wouldn't do, it had to be the authorized version of the genuine slider bun. Then I was having lunch with my friend Renea last week and she said they have them at Shoppers Food Warehouse. Well, by that time I'd given up on finding any so I'd stopped looking, but yesterday when I was in Wegman's I looked, just because I was there. Guess what - I found some, yeah! Now I have to get some ground turkey to make my burgers ... looking good!
Yesterday was such a dreary, rainy, drippy, overcast day but it was saved by a visit with my friend Sandy (http://sandyhassan.blogspot.com/) where we tweaked her blog, then made a beeline for her quilting studio for a sew-in.
Sandy is a new blogger, visit her blog and show her some quilty love! She's also a very talented member of my guild, Uhuru Quilters Guild.
See all those gorgeous bright fabrics behind me? I love the way Sandy has her fabrics organized by color, it helps make the studio a happy place to work in!
While I worked on a paper piecing project, Sandy finished up a fabric basket (another project for my must-do list!). This can be a great take-along project because you can wind the fabric strips around the cording anytime, any place. Then the final stitching is done at the machine.
You can see more of Sandy's baskets here, where I found them at a craft show before Christmas.
It was a great day, it's more fun sewing with a partner! We talked and laughed and oooooh'd (well, actually I oooooh'd over Sandy's quilts!) She gave me a quick-and-easy lesson on making the crescent moon quilt she just finished - a picture is posted on her blog. I can't wait to try it out!
That's it for now, have a great Wednesday - sew forth and sew on!
