Yesterday I took off for NWFL and did my own shop hop. And look what all I got:
Batiks and more batiks. I have been collecting batiks for a short while but still have no plans for them, I just love the mix of colors.
I also have a jelly roll of batiks but they are hanging where I can see them: I am thinking jacket but who knows.
The other fabric I purchased yesterday was the backing for “All That Jazz,” the black and white. I think I may use it for the binding, too, the orange is perfect.
When I got home yesterday I found that I had received got some wonderful blocks in the mail from Pat (A Little of This and a Little of Pat) but I can’t show them because I am planning to use them in a gift for someone who reads this blog. Sorry. I do plan to show them when the project is completed and the person has been gifted.
This morning I worked on an Eleanor Burns BOM block:
These are all appliquéd and ready to be cut up and sewn back together.
And now, since lunch is over, I guess I better get back to it. Tonight I am going out to dinner with DD, DSIL, and DGS to celebrate their 22nd wedding anniversary. Then we are going to the final dress rehearsal of the play, “Lying in State,” that DH is in. He will be doing three performances this weekend and, having already seen it, I will be home sewing up a storm. Yea for everyone!!
