Catch Up Ü

No blogging for a few days results in falling behind.

I got the material in for the Strip and Circle quilt. They had a quilt shop where they live help them pick out the fabric. I think they did pretty good. I am loving that I get to keep the scraps. Lets hope they over bought.Ü This was my craft for last week. I made 12 of these and then WH had a light bulb moment. Usually that means I am done crafting for me and crafting for him. He decided that the extra pictures he had of his oilfield things would make great coaster gifts for his oilfield buddies. I havent done them yet. I dont want to.They arent fun.


Arent these fun though? I hope to make more.SUPER easy if you are looking for a quick gift.
I have pictures of the bargello progress AND I started the silk quilt. I have remembered I hate working with silk. Too late.

Thank goodness for glue & crafting! That is one thing I can manage with the broken wrist...will post pictures after Thursday to show what I made as an exchange gift. Thanks a bunch for the Dots fabric link too! Think we should contact them to see if yardage is available! They are showing a 6 x 7 piece. Can't believe you could bring that up so fast! Have a great week - Dots - you gotta love 'em!

So you didn't need to scrounge around (I mean taking the time to lovingly shop!)for the fabrics for this quilt? What a nice progression of white to black fabrics. And I see that they also had the dotty one that is an integral part of the border. When I pointed out your blog to Wanda, she hoped that fabric was still available for you.

Have fun on it!
