Here in the states we are celebrating Presidents Day today. For me it's a Monday off for a 3 day weekend. So far it has been terrific. Saturday morning I got my Valentine's present. I had vetoed flowers and candy and asked for a new chair for the sewing room instead. My OLD chair had a tendency to change heights throughout the day. Sometimes I could actually start at high and end at low or sometimes it refused to go high at all which would limit how long I could sew before the back and knee started to complain.
Isn't it wonderful?
Several weeks ago, Sarah of http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/2012/01/whats-cookin-at-sweatshop-week-18-lots.html had a challenge and give away. I won. My prize came in the mail on Saturday.
I got the name of the sponsor in there well didn't I. Thank you both. I enjoyed the challenge tremendously.
Now on to Sunday, I have been sitting on a bin full of Batik scraps I purchased from John Flynn several years ago. I bought them by the pound and it was a great purchase but I just didn't know what I wanted to do with them. This past week I saw postings throughout the blog world for Granny Square quilts and thought that it would be a perfect quilt for these pieces. I found this tutorial http://blueelephantstitches.blogspot.com/2012/01/granny-square-quilt-block-tutorial.html to use and the blocks worked up beautifully.
Have a great day.
