A New Beginning!

Hi! Nice to be back - it is so great to have a day at home just to sew! We still have crispy weather with beautiful sunshine - aah, spring! Promises, promises - well here we go! I hope this project doesn't end up being another UFO - WIP, yep, that's okay - maybe one block a day would be nice. I really just love this quilt very scrappy and quite bold, I think that is the appeal. It can be widely seen and I have taken my inspiration from Cathy at Cabbage Quilts and Amy at Badskirt. I love the Japanes novelty prints
so anyone out there who can point me in the right direction to acquiring more, I would love to hear about it - I feel sure there must be a lot of quilt stores here and overseas stocking them, maybe Etsy stores, too.
I'm feeling a bit sad about not having much of a chance to use my new Janome very much - I haven't bonded with her yet, so let's hope now is the time. There are so many gorgeous things happening out there, so tempting!
Hope your day is a happy one!

So happy to see the + and x block! My favourite block of the year I think!!! Check out the Flickr site http://www.flickr.com/groups/1623980@N25/
for lots of ideas of colour combos and all different prints!

It is a great block to do one of and feel accomplished; then too easy just to do one...maybe one more....I am fairly addicted hehe!

We mentioned at the beginning that hermes handbags wholesale finding these wholesale priced Dropship Designer Handbags suppliers isn't easy - and unfortunately, that's true. If you are already seeking a source for handbags you will have encountered hours of hermes birkin cheap research, and most possibly many scams along the way. If you haven't yet started then the good news for you is that you don't have to endure this. As many say "I have a secret to share" - I'll try not to be so corny when I say cambridge satchel us, but...
