in honor of april being almost over, spring being finally here and today being a very fine maine friday, decided to have a little giveaway. the pattern came home with me from retreat last october and the selvedge needlecase was made by me. if you wouldn't mind receiving these 2 frugal gifts, leave a comment and i will draw a name on sunday morning. the wallhanging is 30.5" square and is paper pieced if you want to know. **** yesterday was the first time i was outside without a jacket, always a good thing! doing some cleaning today, getting out my little window fan and some sewing of course! am prepping the binding for autumn change in anticipation of a soon finish. then i think i will finish quilting the last border of the amish center diamond before putting big quilts aside for warmer weather unless i can squeeze one more in before it gets too uncomfortable. **** in the interest of full disclosure have spent just over $700 on fabric, workshop costs and all quilt/sewing related items so far this year. if i didn't count the workshops, it would be frugal indeed, so not bad at all!
