I don't have a proper post planned for today, but I'm hanging out online while Wally cooks us up a fabulous (although late) dinner, so I might as well post something!
You guys probably have seen all the FQS Bella Parade posts here - most of the sewing part of that was finished way ahead of time, so I've been playing around with lots of little things the last few days.
|Quick Curve Ruler (and a bit of patchwork I've already sewn with it!), a sketch FQ bundle, and some AMH goodies!!|
First of all it's my birthday week - and Pinterest really pulled through - for the first time my husband checked out my pinterest board before purchasing gifts (and he shared the link with my MIL). That equals a pretty awesome birthday!!
Next up on my random list. Last night I finally tried "matchstick quilting" (inspired by this quilt by Jacquie Gering). The quilting lines one this piece are between 1/8" and 1/4" apart! This is an 18" square sample and it used up nearly 2 bobbins! I'm pretty much in love with it too! I'm not sure that I could manage it on a larger quilt but it sure is yummy!
Then there are these pretty Mini Moo Cards that came in the mail a while ago. This has been my second order from Moo and I'm really impressed with them. High quality product, easy to use interface, and quick turnaround and shipping, -- oh yeah, and the price is great too! If you want to try them yourself you can order through this link and it'll give you a discount for being referred. :) I actually paid very little for the second batch because of that referral program! It's fun - and why wouldn't I want to share the link with everyone when the cards are just so cool!
In a nutshell, that's what I've been up to this week! :) I hope your week has been fabulous too!
