9-PATCHES AND MAIL

I am busy working on a ST Patty's day door hanging--
and later I will stitch down the binding--
so will show that next time--
I did spend some time on the sewing machine sewing long strips together--
to make about 77 --9-patches--
and I discovered that I can only get 13 from the 2 strips that match
so had to cut some more strips as I would of been about 24 short--
got these ready for leaders and enders or to just sit and do some 'mindless' sewing!!!

And --
my friend Alice got me into trouble last week--
she emailed me one night and said she had just ordered some 'red' fabrics from a company--
called 1,000 bolts--and I could not let her get ahead of me --right???
so here is my order--
I know--somehow a pretty blue got in the cart!!!
oh--and all the fabrics here are one yard cuts and are $4.95 a yard--
and they are designer fabrics--soooo--
and these 4 are all in the same line--
and you know me and my roses--especially pink - red roses--
and they counted cause they there is red in those prints --
except the last one and I need more pink in the pink stash--so a win-win!!
there is more in this line and so I may have to do an order next month when I learn what the color of the month is!!!!!!!!!

and how could I resist these last 3 fat quarters on their sale page--
this print is called 'happy catz'--they make me smile!!

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
I also went down to the dock today--
finally a day without heavy winds here--
been aleast 4-5 days of strong winds--
and spring is in the air here--
see my other blog post for the photos I took down on the dock!!

           ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DI

  1. Oh sure. You can always find a reason to buy pretty new fabric! The pinks are gorgeous. Do they have a sale on just a certain color every month?

  2. Shame on me. And how did you get your order first anyway. Hopefully we can compare reds tomorrow.
    And whatever other color jumped into my cart.

  3. I don't have much to display for St. Patrick's Day. The designs I see just don't thrill me.
