Good Friday Good Fabric

Happy Good Friday. There are 2 really GOOD people and their blogs I want you to visit today. So before I talk fabric I wanted to tell you just how GOOD they are.
First is my friend Leslie's daughter Calli. Calli lives just across town from me and is a darling girl. I swiped this picture above off her blog to show you just one of her cute projects. You'll want to visit and bookmark her blog - "Make it Do". One thing our mothers taught us was: "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without!" That is so incredibly true for today and for our families young and old. Calli has some fun ways to "Make it Do" and has created an amazing blog about food, fabric, quilts, family and fun. It is a wonderful blog for moms and daughters alike. Go see Calli and tell her hi from me. I've been enjoying her posts and I'm so incredibly impressed.

The 2nd good person is Mel. I first "met" Mel when she joined our Christmas Cottage Exchange. She lives west of me about an hour or so. Many of you already visit her blog. But I wanted to say how incredibly impressed I am with her commitment to autism. She's has spent so much time fund raising and raising awareness and she's done it so well. Her blog is "Mel's Own Place" and if you don't already visit her, take a moment to see her incredible talents.
Mel is always doing something for others. I won this fabric at her giveaway last week. It is from a quilt shop in her area. It is perfect for my "Turning 20 - That Alpine Group" quilt. Thanks Mel!.

The next several days I'm going to be incredibly busy with lots of things - Easter, finishing projects, getting ready for the Utah Valley Quilt Guild meeting (where I'll have a booth as a local artist) and getting ready to take a little trip to southern Utah to be with my sisters and also to visit with Nedra, Sherri and Dawn. So I'll have a lot to show you when I get back.

On to Good Fabric and what is on my cutting board on this Good Friday. I'm cutting for projects. So I'll just show you what I have out.
Teapots! Apples!
Charm squares from Glenna - and she is very good, too!
And last this is waffle cotton. It is thick and rich and white. I looked long and hard for this because I have a specific use for it. I'll show you after I get done making it.

Have a peaceful Easter weekend everyone. I hope you spend it with family and remembering the Savior.

Oh I'm excited to see what you make with that waffled cotton!

I love that motto, make it do!

And I whole heartedly agree with you on Mel! She is a superstar!!

Jane sent me a charm pack of the Tea Cup fabric....are you jealous?? I'm just kidding....sometimes I take it out and just pet it.

Fabric needs to be petted when it beautiful.

I'm just saying!

Have a wonderful Easter! What a great weekend!

Thanks so much for mentioning me on your post today Nanette!!

As I've said before you are a great blog/quilting mentor and I'm so glad to 'know' you! Perhaps I'll come down to the UT Valley Quilt Guild show, I've been before and it's a fun time!

Have fun in St.George, you could be anywhere with that group of gals and have a wonderful time!!

Happy Easter and spring!!

Hi N, Sounds like you've got a fun time planned down south. Calli's place mat is adorable and soooo Springy. I visit Mel's blog and agree, she is awsome;) Hope you and your family have a great Easter. Look forward to seeing you on Wednesday;)

Khris said...

Kaaren said...

Who needs Easter candy when you tease us with all that eye candy? I'd much rather have the fabric eye candy anyway...ZERO calories!

I can't wait to see what you're cooking up with those beauties, Nanette.

Happy Easter to you and yours.

Thanks for the link to "Make it Do" - I loved her runner and her blog, too...and thanks too for the reminder of making it do and wearing it out...I must make that my mantra...right after I get back from the fabric shop...surely that cannot apply to fabric! Have a wonderful Easter weekend yourself! xo, The Other Nanette
