I bought this to label blocks because I thought the pigma pen I had was getting dried up. For $1.50. It leaked. My hand was black. Luckily it didn't ruin any blocks.
You get what you pay for. I had to fish it out of the trash to take this picture. It's back in there now.
In about an hour Lisa's package will be in the mail!!! (Post Office doesn't open until then.) I was so excited to have everything ready (and so frustrated after scrubbing ink off my fingers) that I forgot to take a picture.
Then my brother and his quilter-wife will be coming over. She has 5 quilts to baste! They're all about lap/baby size, but holy cow! I think the three of us will baste. My hubby is working this weekend and playing basketball with the guys. It's just as well, he claims "biddy stuff" will contaminate and kill him.
When we get the quilts basted, I will start work on this:
My mom and I each got these charm packs on a shop hop earlier this year and both thought they were cute, but had no idea what to do with them. I've seen a lot of quilts with pinwheel-type blocks and varying names (you can see my sketch in there), but found a good tutorial at Quilting on Turtle Hill's blog, so that is what I will be using.
I also stopped at JoAnn's earlier this week to pick up some solids for my proposed modern scrap quilt. (Left brain has become more comfortable with it as right brain figures out what it's doing.) The fabric on top is definitely not a solid, but I couldn't pass it up. I'll find a use for it someday.
I picked up another doll for my Santa Claus girls project this week, too. This one is dressed in blue and those are hard to find. Mostly they're pink and purple. Pics to come.
I have next week off (almost forgot to tell!), so it's going to be a whirlwind of quilting around here. I've told the hubby he's in charge of getting/making dinner and lunch will be pizza rolls and Coke (or something equally quick to make)!
