There are several things I need to talk about today. First of all...a special thank you goes out to Julie. I found a lovely surprise in my mail today from her...a small box containing a beautiful jelly roll of batiks! I love batiks and have been collecting a few bits here and there. I have them all together in one fabric tub so when the time is right, I'll have them all together to make a batik quilt. And now I'll have these beautiful strips to add to the mix. Thank you so much Julie...you truly made my day! :0)
Also I need to announce the winner of my strips and selvages giveaway. I did the random number thingy and the winner is Sandie! Congratulations Sandie and thanks to you all for being willing to take a wee bit of my stash off my hands!
Now, since today is the first of October (how did THAT happen? LOL) it's time to think about making the next four blocks in the charming stars sew-along. I have been busy with other things, but I hope to get a few more blocks made for my quilt this weekend. If you're sewing along with us, you should try to make four more blocks this month, or as many or as few as you want...whatever works for you. I'll be adding a new linky for October yet this evening, so feel free to add your name to that once you post your blocks for October on your blog.
I think that's it for now. Stay tuned...I have a chicken to finish tonight, so she may make an appearance on my blog tomorrow! LOL
