My Winnings

Here's the wonderful door prize I won at Thursday's quilt guild meeting:

-Kaffe Fassett book
-Adorable (!) dish towel
-TWO patterns
-TWO charm packs
-Moda tin

What a haul! So many goodies for me to love and use!

Yesterday afternoon I packed up my fabric, hexie papers, thread, scissors, and thimble and off we went to the baseball game! We had great seats and the weather was perfect - warm and sunny. I pulled my sewing bag from my purse and realized I had forgotten a needle. Big oops!!!

No worries. I settled in and enjoyed the game. We had a great time.

Cooper decided to give Mickey a nice bath yesterday - you can see that Mickey is enjoying it.

So what's on tap for today? It's rainy here - a really good excuse to stay inside and sew. And that's exactly what I plan to do. I want to make a new-to-me zippered bag or two today. And also find some time to hexie.

Plus I'm going to delve into something different - a different form of art... It's something I tried years ago and haven't tried it in a long time. I bought some supplies yesterday. Do I have your curiosity up?  Well, you'll have to wait until tomorrow to learn more about this.

Okay, peeps...bring on the coffee! Let's get this day going!


  1. did win didn't you!!! How cool!!! Look forward to your next 'adventure'!

  2. In your free time (what is that?) you might want to consider whipping up a travel sewing kit that has everything you need to sew hexies. I made myself one and I just LOVE it for sewing in the car or someplace where you are going to sit for a few hours. Right now I am sewing 1930s fabric so I have a stack of 2.5" squares in my kit. That way the fabric, papers (I actually use cut up cardstock advertisements) and all of the other things I need to sew at a moment's notice! If you want to take a look at mine, it is on my blog.
