WIP Wed: Swap Blocks, Basting, and Postcards
I did manage to get a wee bit of sewing done in the past few weeks, mostly when Shanna, of Fiber of All Sorts came over to play/sew! Do you ever have sewing dates with your girlfriends? I highly recommend them!!
I signed up for a 6 month long quilt block swap at our local quilt store, and these are my November blocks that I made over the week-end. Below are the ones I got back from October! So much fun!
I hope to get them done in time to give away for Christmas presents! Wish me luck!
Finally, I have my November postcards that I'm working on for the swap I'm still doing. The theme is "using selvages". One thing about selvages is that you don't really have much from any one cut of fabric. So each postcard is very different! I just need to trim, finish the edges, and put them into the mail!!
Finally, I would love to hear any suggestions about Blogger's sudden request for me to pay to have my blog pictures stored. What do you do? I used Flickr to upload these pictures, and copied the link, but the pictures are pretty poor. Considering the time and effort that I spend blogging, the thought of having to PAY a monthly fee on top of it all, is really a detriment. I don't make a penny for this blog, but it does get me some exposure, so I guess it's worth something. Ugh.... I guess I'll be doing some research about it all. My old blog, Becky's Blabber I had for 2 1/2 years, and never encountered this problem. Hmmm....
As usual, I'm linking up with WIP Wed, over at Lee's place! Come join us!!
