Dixie Samplar Designs last week, and Terri's wonderful package arrived yesterday. I was filled with anticipation when opening the box. Do you want to see what's inside?
A whole lot of wonderful stitching goodness! Scissors, patterns, a glass flower frog, thread, fabric, treats, a candle, and fabric! What more could a girl want? Thanks so much Terri for the fun. I'm so in awe of your generosity!
I especially liked this pattern. I think I will put that in the "to do real soon" pile! (Do you have one of those? Mine is really big!Deb. This wasn't really a huge surprise, as I knew that she was sending this package. It's quilt software, for Dear Jane. The surprise was how fast the postman got it here! Deb and I are going to start this project together. She bought this software for herself several years ago, but it is for Windows, and she now owns a Mac, so it would not work her. I'm really hoping it works on my computer, so I can print templates out for us to paper piece many of the blocks. Want to join us on this insane quest? I can't promise we will be very organized or stay on task, but you are welcome to join in the fun if you want. Let me know.
I think this saying applies in this situation, "Better done than perfect!"
I finished my Joined at the Hip quilt. It's hanging on the front door. I'm amazed at how long projects like this, actually take! I thought a day or two...good grief it took me a day just to quilt the darn thing. I'm not thrilled with my quilting either. I used clear thread, so it wouldn't show up very well. I'm critical of my skills, as they are very beginning. I'm not one that would choose to do an entire quilt, as I like the finished product so much more if an experienced quilter does the job. It's good to practice I guess. I'm all for learning new skills.
Well, take care and have a wonderful 4th of July. Thanks so much for your advice on my quilt from the last post. I'm still holding on that quilt for a while! Also, thanks for your comments and kind words. I should respond to all your comments, and forgive me for not doing so. I will try and be better! Your comments are the reason I keep blogging, so thanks from the bottom of my heart!
