Saturday morning

I got a subscription to Australian Patchwork and Quilting for Christmas and the first 2 issues arrived today. I was getting kinda worried about it as it's been over a month since I got the email that it was ordered for me. How cool is that???





One of the girls on a list I'm on thinks it's fun to send me all the extra hsts from mysteries. I love the fabric she chose this time and I spent the day yesterday sewing them together, trimming to 1 1/2" finished and putting them together. All those pieces to make a 12" block. I must have way too much time on my hands- not really but it was fun. I have enough to make 2 more rows or another 6". I think if I can find a blue , lime green or something to match it will make a cute doll quilt.




Lots to do today- hope everyone is getting lots of sewing done and staying warm- the big artic freeze is supposed to be here today.....

Wow! Australian magazines, how cool! My sewing machine shop sells Australian magazines so I don't need a subscription.

I like your Yankees count down clock. I'm off to get me a Red Sox one.
