So here we go - Three things to be happy about:
(1) the first flowers of spring
(2) birds building a nest (but not under my awning, please!)
(3) new house plants
Sistah Stitchalot told me about this handy dandy applique sheet she uses. Actually it's a Betty Crocker 23 x 16" oven liner!
I've seen vendors selling applique pressing sheets at quilt shows but for some reason I hardly ever see them anyplace else. I don't know how much they cost, but this one was $9.99 from the kitchen area at Bed Bath & Beyond.
I know, I know, you can get them online but if you REALLY need one right away, a quick trip to your local Bed Bath & Beyond beats online shopping!
The Sue top has been kitted with the back, and I've put it to bed as it were til I can quilt it.
While I'm deciding what to work on next, I'm cutting fabrics for Bonnie Hunter's latest leader-ender challenge; the units are being cut at 3-1/2 x 6-1/2" with 2" squares for the HST at the corners.
I don't have any pre-cut 3-1/2" strips, so I've been digging through my scraps again, pulling out some of the larger pieces to cut down.
(have you noticed that every pile of scraps looks like you've seen it before??)
I even have this Alexander Henry print in two colorways:
It's a 2000 print called "elephants of rana" that was gifted to me, it'll play very nicely with the other scraps!
I'm pinning these into groups of 10 as Bonnie suggests... so far, so good, I've cut 60 already!
So that's it for today; I supposedly have a 9:30 appointment at the eye doctor which ain't gonna happen! Have a great day, make a snowman or snow quilt, sew forth and sew on!
