So I finally finished my March quilt squares for the two swaps I am a part of; Another Quilting Bee 2 and Pieced Together Quilting Bee. Above is the spiderweb block for Stephanie at Dancydoodle It was my first attempt at paper piecing. I learned quickly the tips that were already given to me but I forgot. I forgot to trim as I was going and then as I was ripping the paper off - I learned to make you stitch length small so that it one, stays together better and two, the paper comes off easier. I hope Stephanie likes it or rather her husband. I also finished the same type of square for Sara at Just One More. I don't have a photo yet because as I relaxing watching some Mentalist on the DVR (I can't get enough Simon Baker - so charming) it was laying next to me and two large matching pieces were next to each other staring at me, taunting me with "look at me, you messed up." Little pieces next to each other wouldn't bother me but these did so I took the triangles apart to flip them. Very difficult with those small stitches but I got it. I will sew it back together tonight and take a picture of it. So, Sara and Stephanie - yours will be in the mail tomorrow! Only 2 days late.
I also wanted to thank you for your kind words. I feel like such a girl being all emotional but she was like a sister and I don't think how she acted when I expressed myself that it could ever go back. What can you do right? It happens. On a high note, Kat, at Ripping Out Seams is having a Giveaway for 4 Fat Quarters of Heather Bailey's Freshcut Fabrics! How awesome. Go check it out! I was just thinking. I don't think I own any Heather Bailey nor do I think I have seen any at the quilt shops around my house. Hmmm...maybe I should win. Hint, hint. :)
Have a wonderful day everyone! We are getting snow mixed with rain. Isn't it spring yet?
