I celebrated my birthday a few days ago (60 something - retirement, here I come) and wanted to share a card I received from my sister. She is a talented scrapbook and card maker. She designed a card for me and the inside has this sweet patchwork with little buttons and a star. It completely relates to me; I've made more star blocks than I want to count and love those little buttons, and I do love traditional patchwork. I love the card. Thank you, Ging.
The fourth lantern block is called the Tinkerbell Lantern. http://www.quiltyhabits.blogspot.com
Just one more and we're done. On Monday we get lantern #5 and the finishing directions. I've thoroughly enjoyed making these cuties. They work up fast so if you are thinking of joining in it's not too late.
I did some more bargain shopping at Sizzix and for under $40, which included shipping, I got all of these dies:
I can't wait to play with that teacup as well as all of the others, but today I used the hexie.
These are easy to sew together. It's important to start and stop 1/4" in when sewing the seam so I'm finding this a slower project, but that's fine. I'm using up scraps and it's fun.
I won this FQ bundle from Camelot Fabrics.
The collection is called Gray Matters and is mostly polka dots and paisley prints. It's so cool. Thank you, Camelot Fabrics.
What will you be doing a week from today? I'll be here hosting the August Christmas QAL. Hope you join in.
God Bless You.
