Please email me at MySweetPrairie@gmail.com if you want to meet up to sew tonight at Judy's Studio on 9th in Saskatoon! (Flo? Brenda? Angie? SQG members?) I never did make it there this week to check it out. The space is available at 7 pm. My plan was to work on the St. Nikolas Day quilt, but I ended up completing the applique last night. It's looking good I think!

I need to clean up all the stray threads. I used brown thread to applique it all which helps define the yellow shapes better. Their houses are so darn cute!

I won't bring the "Grandma's Cabin" piece because there is too much fine detail and too many embellishments. Plus, if anyone disturbs me while I'm in the zone, I might just have a little fit and holler, "will you keep it down already!?! I'm trying to work here!". LOL That would probably not go over well. : ) I'll leave THAT piece for my quiet nights and mornings at home.

Sadly, it's the last swap for the PostcardCottage group. They are disbanding. I would take it over if I understood anything about yahoogroups and databases, but I do not. I signed up for the "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" swap. So that is what I will work on tonight. I need to make four postcards with that theme.
|I'm make them as pretty as possible!|
I'm looking forward to tonight! I'm going to bring a box of scraps that I plan to leave there. It can be a give & take supply for when people are paper piecing or short on a section of binding. I'll need a selection of teeny pieces for the postcards, so I thought this give & take box would come in very handy at the studio. Hopefully it will also keep scraps from being tossed in the garbage.
