After my usual morning hand quilting time--
I headed to the sewing room--
had decided to cut the rest of the Valentine charm packs into 2 1/2" strips--
then cut some plain white into 2 1/2" strips--
and 'play' being a Bonnie --
as I was doing that--Me decided to also do another project with some of the 5" charms--
so I set about doing it--but needed 36 charms and had already cut too many--needed 8 more--
so I got out my pink basket and found 2 fabrics that would work and cut me 8 more charms--
and went to work--
And this is what I created 'first'---
Now I have used what some call--bunny ears or leaders/enders/ for along time--
but is has just been small pieces of fabric--
But Bonnie actually sews small pieces together towards another project--
She does alot with 2 1/2 inch squares for one thing--
so I decided that is what I would do too--
and that is why I was cutting up the charm squares and white cotton strips this morning--
and got the 'notion' that "today was the day" for some excitement--
And I am doing the happy dance tonight--
I just love it--
when you have no plan --
but the plan comes together anyways--
look what I did with that quilt top --
Here is the first row--can you tell where I am going with this--
maybe this will help--
Ahhhh-no Miss Gracie--I really can do this job all by myself--
Now do you know?????
I have had all three sizes of the twister rulers for a long time--
got the two larger ones first months ago--
and today I finally just 'did-it'--
This is the greatest technique in the whole world--
or at least it was today--
loved doing this--can't wait to do another one!!!
Now back to Bonnie--
See the shoe box--it is full of the strips sewed together already--
when you do the blocks on the twist, you only sew on one at a time--
so I sewed a strip set together in between each time I had to add another block--
flew right along with those strips!!!!
They are not all done yet--but nearly--
there is no time set for finishing these--so will just keep stitching on them til they are done--
and then what--hummm--
only time will tell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's all for today--folks!!!
Hugs, Di and that Miss Gracie!!!!
