IT'S A SWAP
Happy Australia Day
Now on to the serious sewing stuff.
Not that the country's nationl day isn't important. It is . In fact my daughter Heather was the only baby born at my hospital on Australia Day 1973 who's name didn't make reference to James Cook. Heather and family are on their way over for bday lunch as I write. SNL's birthday is tomorrow.
Ah cake and more cake yummmm
The cutting comes first. 8 quilting friends are swaping 2" strip sets.
Lots of ironing.
And stitching. I' m really enjoying making friends with my Featherweight.
A full day later.
Because the family paused for celebrations and sleep over. Grampa and the GC's are out to get fish and chips so I 'm cutting more strips.
I refuse to do the math I do not want to know how many 2 " squares are needed to make 8 bundles of 72 (3 square) strip sets until I finish. Right now I know the number is big........... the up side is
1. Using stash
2. Getting just as many back
3. Lots of the fabrics will be different than mine
4. Fun sharing with other quilters
All such reasons to cut, stitch, and press over and over so back to it for now. Hope your all having a good day. Terry
