New site with fabric giveaway

I just went to a new site that is hosting a fabric giveaway this weekend. It is Nice website that specializes in Moda and Riley Blake. Go check it out.

The weather here in the PNW has finally turned to summer in the last few days. It was so nice to come back home from spending a week and a half in Durham, NC in 103 degree (114 with heat index) weather to 80 degree weather. The humidity alone was terrible. I didn't even leave the apartment last weekend due to the weather but that was ok, I had a nice, relaxing sewing weekend. I am making a bento box quilt with my scrap fabrics and it is turning out nice. I have decided to try and put a big dent in my scrap fabric pile since I have so much of it and then I can keep working with my stash of fabric. Always nice to use it up so you can buy more.

Well, going to get back outside to do some yard work.

Potholders I made for Potholder Pass 2

Here are the potholders I made for Potholder Pass 1

Welcome the new year!!

I haven't blogged for a really long time due to going back to work and connection issues and just life rushing by. I have just signed up for a fabric I-spy swap that is based on picking one color category and cutting 200 4 inch squares to swap with a group of people. I picked brown for something different since no one picked that particular color. Almost went with Gray but I decided Brown was different.

I missed the sign-up for the newest Potholder Pass by one day. Connection issues prevented me from signing up earlier. I knew I was flying home on Friday which was the last day of the sign-up and, of course, I forgot to do it until Saturday morning. I hopefully have someone else that missed the deadline and we will swap together. This should be fun as it is Monotone this time. I am going to give my swapper a choice between Red and Black. I will add pictures once I find out her color and make the potholders. Should be lots of fun.

I will be posting all the pictures of the last potholders I did for the previous Potholder Passes I participated in.

Bye for now,
Michelle :o)
