Anyway, in honor of the event I'm having my morning coffee in a cup I bought before leaving my agency, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. I really wish you could see it better because it's a nice cup in deep deep blue with the agency name in gold surrounding an eagle. Ahhh, coffee ... ahhhh those good ole workaday memories - not!
Did I ever mention that I have a few scraps??
These babies are about to be taken down! Ebony Love at Love Bug Studies is hosting the first ever Die-Cut-Scrap-(Make Later)-Along and I'm getting ready to get ready for it. It will run for three weeks starting on April 1 (no fooling!), so I've started going through my scraps to see what I can un-earth. BUT! After looking at the chaos in my sewing room I decided rather than going through boxes and bins, I'll use the scraps and yardages that are hangin' out in piles and heaps - or heaps of piles - and cut those first. Just looking at the three photos above it's obvious I have enough to make at least two quilts!
This is the 3" finished HST die, I think it will work wonderfully for this project! And the other advantage is I'll be able to use smaller size scraps, the instructions suggest using a 4-1/2" wide piece.
I marked the lines as suggested by several expert (seasoned?) users to make the cutting lines easier to see.
Well that's all for now, I hope all are enjoying this up-and-down weather, spring is next week!
Have a great Friday, sew forth and sew on...
