Swap Fabrics

Here is what I just wrote for the 15 Minute Play blog.  We had a scrap challenge swap over there and I was paired up with Chris Hudson of Hudson News and Muse blog.  You can go to 15 Minutes to see her posting of the swap.

Chris and I were paired up for this past scrap swap and decided to trade a gallon size bag of scraps.  I have finally gotten around to taking a picture of all the scraps - you can't really see everything since they are all dumped out on top of each other, but just know that there is quite a bit of scraps for me to work with  there.  Lots of nice warm colors, some limey greens and cool blues and lights/whites.  There are fabrics similar to what I would choose, but not what I have in my stash. 

 Which makes it fun.  There are bits of leftover made fabric already started just waiting for me to add on to and create my own version.
And there are dogs and stars waiting to shine in their own spotlight.  I can't wait to begin working with these scraps to see where they lead me.  Thank you Chris for your scraps and Victoria for creating the swap.

Surprise - A new Posting

I know it's been a long time, but I have been soooo busy!!!  I counted up.  In 52 days, I had 17 days of quilting commitments.  That doesn't include getting ready for those quilting days,  actually doing my day job of teaching, running our school restaurant, other crisises that life decided throw my way and just living everyday life.   I think things have settled down on the traveling scene for at least the next few weeks so I hope to get back to blogging.  I do think about things that I want/need to blog about - for example - Tuesday we had a nice hot day - 90 degree weather - then a cool front came through Tuesday night and dropped the temperatures enough that we actually had a few snow flakes yesterday morning and then it turned into sleet.  Don't worry, it didn't last long - about 6 minutes or so - just enough to drive across town.  Okay, that is all I have time for today.  I will really try to blog again later this week.
