Since the last two mini give-aways were patterns, Penny suggested we throw a little fabric in the mix.
Here are two charm packs of Simplicity by 3 Sisters for Moda.
I love these soft colors. I'm thinking they might work well in one of the Snibbles patterns or maybe ... well, there are tons of possibilities!
After Christmas I plan on getting back on track with my Short Lister projects. I squared up two quilts today and will attach the bindings tomorrow. Then I can sit and enjoy the stitching, my favorite part of making a quilt. I have three quilts to bind!
I've been thinking a lot about things I'd like to learn to do in the new year. Every year I say I'm going to do this or that, and make goals, lists, etc., but next year I'm going to keep it simple and focus on learning something new.
So in the new year I want to learn to hand quilt. I've tried it a time or two, but mostly that was when my shoulder was all screwed up and before I had the replacement hardware installed. Now there's really no excuse not to just do it! One or two small projects will probably be on the agenda to learn on before moving to a large project. Anyone with me?
Leave a comment about some quilting technique you'd like to learn to do in the new year. Maybe it's something simple that you've just never taken the time to sit down and figure out. Maybe it will be learning to work with wool. Or perhaps learning needleturn applique. I know everyone has something they'd like to learn!
We'll pick a winner on Tuesday, 12/18/12, when I get home from work. Be sure to leave contact information in your comment if it's not linked to your blog.
There will be one more quickie give-away before Christmas, and it might be a good one! At least that's what Penny whispered to me tonight!
NOTE: I just finished sewing on three bindings!! Lots of hand stitching to do this week!
