A New Development!

SO, there's a group of gals at work who are at various levels in our sewing skills as well as some who don't sew but want to learn. We've decided to start a monthly group to sew and snack and shoot the breeze! Those who are skilled seamstresses will mentor those of us who are still getting started and those of us who have at least a few skills will be able to help the utterly clueless. Lots of sharing of knowledge and experiences! I am SOOO excited about it!

I have a lot sewing projects in mind for our "Material Girls" club...aprons, bags, Christmas gifts, Toy Society projects and the like. I may also use this time to do some quilting too! I'm suddenly feeling more sewing motivation than I have in months!

want to make this:
(I have the kit, fabrics and all, ready...and waiting)

Or this...
I've been hanging on to some 30's repro prints that I think would be perfect for this quilt.


a quilt using the wonky log cabin scrap blocks that I've been making here and there. Note to self: Make more wonky log cabin blocks so you'll have enough for an actual quilt rather than a throw pillow.

Did I mention I'm excited?!

Oooh, I'm so jealous. What a great idea to have a group of girls get together like that. :)

Both patterns are wonderful, but I really like the second one.

I'm jealous too....*sigh*
Maybe I'll have a party of mine own, complete with a glass (make that bottle) of wine.
But then....maybe if I just drink the ENTIRE bottle, that will be party enough? heehee
