A few weeks ago Michelle, otherwise known as Dresden Quilter, had a give-away on her blog. And I won! I received Michelle's package this week. The fabric is in my favorite colors reds, yellow and a touch of green. They are lovely. Thank you so much Michelle. Michelle has a great blog and I've been a reader for years. I have also been a long time (well in blog time) reader of Jodie at Ric Rac. In fact I won a give-away at Jodie's blog probably 2 years ago (a fabulous selvage scarf!). Anyway, I have been adoring Jodie's fabric teapot and teacup from afar. She recently came out with a pattern I purchased at her Etsy Shop. Isn't the pattern so cute. Jodie sent along a few treats with her pattern. Thanks so much Jodie! I love them all. I will be making the teacup and saucer as soon as I get a spare moment. The teapot will have to wait. At the end of next week I'm going south 5 hours to St. George to sew with my good friends and my sisters. I'm very excited. I'm going to be sewing with 2 of my own sisters plus Nedra, Lori, Rae Ann, Dawn, Sherri and maybe meet Glenna. Today I'm pulling fabric to take with me to make "Gypsy Kisses" with Nedra's help. I've been wanting to make this quilt for a while. I'm not a fan of foundation piecing but for this I'll do my best and take it on. We will also be making Lori's "Eat Cake". So I'm really excited to use the kit I got when I went to the American Quilting retreat. My finished product will not look like Lori's above, but hopefully it won't be too far off. I'm not great with embroidery. I hope the gals will help me.
