Spring Market here I come ....!

I'm all booked!  I couldn't believe how quickly the hotels sold out! But, all is in order.  I am so excited!  I'll be driving down, this way I can load up the car! ;o)  If any one is attending spring market in Pittsburgh, PA and would like to meet, let me know!  I'm always happy to meet some blogging friends.

On the quilting front, I have been busy getting projects completed and started.  Nothing finished to share, yet! Let's just say Penelope has a line up of quilts! ;)

However, one project I recently started is the last quilt in the Civil War series by Dolores Smith and Sarah Maxwell called Peace and Unity.  It is a new block of the month offered by Fibre Junction.  Want to see the fabrics for month one (1)?

Aren't they gorgeous?   The quilt will be stunning!

Off to get some work done!  Thanks for stopping by!

Yours in Fibre,

What the heck ...!

We go from freezing arctic Brrrrrr - "baby it's cold outside" weather to, hey "it's a heat wave".  One extreme to another within hours!  Okay, a relief from the bitter cold is nice, but does it have to be to that extreme????

I want to share an event that took place at Fibre Junction, back in early December.  It was our last meeting of Jo's Little women' club 12. Both the day and night group met in the evening.  It was a "potluck" dinner, gosh was it delicious!  And those willing, brought a hand made pin cushion gift wrapped for our "Yankee Pincushion Swap".

What a blast it was!

There are many ways of doing a Yankee Swap, but these were our rule:

There will be 3 rounds.  Each participant picks a number out of a hat.  We proceed in numerical order.  Everyone gets to open a package on the first round.  When your number comes up, you chose a wrapped package from the pile, opened it, and if you want to swap, you can do so with other members who have opened a gift.  Round 2, everyone has a change to swap - numerical order.  On round 3, only number 1 gets to swap.

Wanna see the pincushions?

Here is the last one.  I just couldn't get a picture of the whole thing.

I truly enjoyed everyone's creativity.  Each one is so unique.  I just love them all!  What a great group of women!

This is the pincushion that came home with me!

Cute as a button and it fits nicely in my English Paper Piecing basket.

What a great group of women!  Thank you!

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of cyber space.  Cheers!

SSCS 2013 ...!

Do you participate in swaps?  I sure do, and I love it.  This year, I did Donna - Chookyblues Secret Santa swap!

Kerry Swain was my Secret Santa and sent me a copy of her book.

Love the projects in it!  She also made this beautiful wall hanging.

Thank you again Kerry for being my Secret Santa and thank you Donna for hosting another successful swap!
