Well, today I celebrated my 34th birthday!!
I had a great day!
My husband took me on a quilt shop hop of the three Kingston quilt shops, and the two shops in Brockville.
He didn't come in the stores with me, but patiently waited in the car while I did my shopping.
He was so great!!!
I bought a lot of stuff!
First, I bought two GO! dies, the 1.5 inch inch strip die and the 6.5 inch HST die.
I already started using the 1.5 inch strip die.
I really love this die!
I was leary of buying the strip dies because I had heard some negative comments about them.
But, let me tell you that this die is amazing.
You have to be careful to make sure you put it in the machine straight.
But it cuts so perfectly.
I started making some blocks with my cut up strips.
Here they are.
I'm using this pattern.
So, that was fun to sew.
But, you are probably wondering what else I bought.
Lots of fabric!!!!!
Most of it was on sale.
I got 10.5 metres of fabric.
I never buy that much fabric at once.
I usually just by 4 or 5 fat quarters and that's it.
But, it's my birthday, so I'll shop if I want too!!!
Here's my fabric.
Some reproduction fabrics,
These are from the Hope collection,
A few Minick & Simpson fabrics,
And some Kona Cotton Yardage.
The Kona Cotton is for a quilt I'm making for my brother's wedding quilt.
I haven't started it yet.
But, I have the design.
So, I thought I would update my photo.
My other photo was taken several years ago, and I've changed.
I don't take a lot of photo's.
I'm kind of camera shy.
But, I thought since it's my birthday, I should have some kind of record.
And you know what?
I'm good with it.
So, this is me!!
I hope you all had a great day!
