Too Cold to Run

What do you do when it is too cold to run? Why sew scraps, of course! I got up and got ready for my day and had an extra hour this morning that I spent with myself, my sewing machine and my beloved batik scraps. A great way to start a Friday! I highly recommend it!

I hope you get to spend some time communing with your sewing machine today!

Happy Sewing indeed!

My Tulip is Quilted

My scrappy tulip block is quilted! Doesn't it look cute? And ya gotta luv a striped binding!

I heavily quilted the red background with a hot pink thread for texture and a little bit of contrast.

I hope my friend likes it! She is getting it tonight!
Happy quilting!

Ichy Sewing Fingers

Hello! I am alive and well out in my real life and I have had some itchy sewing fingers! What's a girl to do? Start sewing that's what! I zipped this little thing together last night.
The truth is I've been wanting to make one of these Scrappy Tulip quilts for a long time. I have seen several of these out in blogland. LeeAnn at Nifty quilts has made a cute one! Girlfriend used a red polka dot, isn't she sassy? This little block is being made as a gift for a friend but I do intend to make a lot more of these blocks so I can make a quilt for my bed.

And guess what I'll be doing tonight! Happy sewing!
