a month or so ago on ebay, i was THIS close to placing a ridiculous bid for 75 batik strips. when the bid went over what figured out to be a totally unfrugal price, i reluctantly stopped and glad i did. the quiltville swappers had a batik strip swap and for about $5 i got 40 batik strips, which will add variety to my small stash. can't believe there was a time when i thought the rage over batiks was completely unfounded. haven't seen one yet that i didn't think was beautiful. **** what is on the sewing table today? the scrappy indigo and a quickie project sure to perk up my cube at work....you'll see!
