Garden Notes, Meow or Never and the UFO Challenge
Well it would seem our Family Day long weekend is almost at an end. I hope if you were able to have today off that you were also able to get some time at your sewing machine, quilting machine or hand piecing! We've had a wonderful response so far to the Periwinkle UFO Challenge. We've had several entries for winning your purchase back and it is still early days for the finishes. Remember you can join in at any point between now and April 1st. Details are available in store. Speaking of UFOs, I spent Sunday and today finishing a shop sample with our new Garden Notes line. The colours are so soft and pretty! It's big half square triangles that form 4 blended stars. The kits are almost ready and we should be able to hang it up this week. Today I was also able to load the Meow or Never quilt (2 kits left in the shop!) on to the long arm. It was really a fun and fairly easy top to put together. To tell you the truth I had been working up the courage to get at it because I thought the cat was all applique. Not so. The cat is just one (huge) panel. Some fusible web around the edges, some cutting out and voila! I love it when things aren't complicated! Quilting it will be a lot of fun too. Weather-wise this week is still looking pretty good. All of these warmer temperatures are making me want the Spring fabrics to arrive sooner! Wishing you all a lovely week! Happy Sewing!
