3rd Wednesday is Club Day

Today, is Girl Gang Club!!!! I have been looking forward to tonight since the last club meet a month ago. The best thing about club is that I get to see all my sewing/blog buddies and what they have been working on. Plus, you get to SHOP at the store too! I was only going to purchase a new thimble but I do "need" more blending colors and solid fabrics! My birthday is tomorrow so I could say it is an "early birthday gift to myself", right?

For tonight's club, I had to have all my homework done which meant 2 out of the 4 bicycles. If you complete your homework each month, you get a stamp on a fabric card. After the club ends, each stamp you received counts toward free fabric. I finished on Monday night....just in time...

Bye for now,

Quilting Block Swaps Australia: One Year Anniversary!

On April 6th, Quilting Block Swaps Australia (#1) is celebrating its one year anniversary!!!! The swap now has over 44 members. With so many people interested and wanting to join, a second 12" group (#2) was created earlier this year. Shortly after this, a 6" block swap was started.

I invite anyone and everyone to pop over to Sue's and sign up as part of the swap.  Not only do you get to try something new, you learn so much with each monthly block. You won't meet your swap buddy in person, but you will become friends nonetheless. I think it is pretty neat to make something from the heart and send it to places like Australia, New Zealand, England or Portugal.  I am always so excited to send a block because I know it will make my friend's day. And when I receive a block, it always makes my day too.

Congratulations, Sue!

All the best,
