It was beautiful.
I've been putting together what I call "cancer" quilts. I brought home a kit from The Hobby Horse and sewed the top. I take it back and they do the rest of the work. I spent 2 hours a day on it until it was done.
Then I had an "Angie" day. I have a friend in Australia who was my secret sister and is now my adopted daughter. She has two girls ages 10 and 7 (guess I have two new grands too) and they dance. Angie featured this great ballet set on her website awhile ago and I've wanted to make it for Susan. Its a freebie so if you have someone you could make this for ..................................
there are a few to choose from.
This is the first block and for those of you that aren't members, what are you waiting for? I know of no other place where you have access to a ga-zillion patterns for $30 a year, yes a year!
I'm waiting for one more from Angie. It will come out under the category of All Buttoned Up. I'm waiting for the sand dollar. Karl and I use to scour the beaches for them when we would spend time in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It is still one of our favourite places and we have fabulous memories of our trips there. We went every spring for 13 years and then out of country health insurance got ridiculously expensive so we stay in Canada and usually go to Ottawa for the tulip festival which is fantastic.
Since I wrote this I finished my ballerinas. I love them and I know they are going to a good home.
