Boy, just when we get used to 80 degrees, sunshine, and sweet breezes--along comes 20 degrees and fierce winds! Kansas City's weather is as fickle as can be. Oh, well, as they say, just wait a few minutes!
I spent two days with no internet access! Talk about withdrawal symptoms. I had to go to my public library to use their internet so I could at least check my email. And, wow, did I miss checking in on my favorite blogs!!! My Roadrunner guy came early this morning and got me back online. Turns out I needed a new modem. Hope that solves the problem permanently! Must have internet, must have internet, must have internet...
Thought I'd answer a few questions from the comments on my last post. Dawn and Judy, those cute little green thingies on the ends of the scissors are actually knitting needle protectors. Clover makes those little ones and I can usually find them at a craft store (JoAnns, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby). Atet asked about the quilting charms. I found those at Hobby Lobby in the beading department. Angie asked about purchasing the little scissors with beaded fobs. They've been turned over to the boutique chairperson for the quilt show. I'm not sure what they will do with the unsold "merchandise" but I'll keep you in mind!
Here's a photo of what I worked on when I couldn't be on the internet yesterday (hmmmm, is there a lesson to be learned here? Nah!) I adore English cottages and Mary Engelbreit cottages and decided one would brighten up my dining room for Spring. So I did some stash-nibbling and came up with this. And, yep, there are some yo-yos for bushes and clouds. Had to justify the purchase of those yo-yo makers LOL! I will try to machine quilt it this afternoon.
Hey, you should really check out Dawn's blog today. She has the most amazing tutorial on freezer-paper-piecing to achieve those incredible pointy points! I have heard about this method before but never fully got it until I read her tutorial--complete with great photos!!!
Okay, KC Quilter, get off the internet and into the sewing room!
