I spent most of the day playing in the Ivory Tower! I got lots of practice on my Big Shot Pro, cutting 2" strips for Hawaii Sunset. I'm so happy with this machine and very glad that I bit the bullet and purchased it! I don't even want to think about how my wrist would be feeling right now after cutting all those strips by rotary cutter today...
|These were some scrap strips given to me by my friend Lori - they were the perfect size to cut down and add to the browns for this project! Thanks Lori!!!|
|This is an example of how easy it is to cut strips out of my scraps. Just lay them on the machine, roll it through and I have a handful of perfect, wonderful strips ready to be sewn up - YUM!!!|
Then I got to work on the flying geese. These are FUN!!! Tomorrow I hope to find some time to play some more. I'd like to get to the point that I can put together some more complete blocks like this one....
I had a lot of requests for the flying geese paper-piece pattern, and I'm happy to share. However, PLEASE make sure you are not a No-Reply Blogger or that you leave your email address in the comment if you are. You can change this setting in your Blogger Profile settings.
Karen - I'd love to send you the pattern, but you are set up as No-Reply so I do not have your email address. Please email me separately or leave your email in a new comment so I can send this out to you :*)
But that was not all of the fun I had today.... Surprises were in store for me too!!!
First, my "little girl" got engaged!!!!
I am so happy for this sweet couple whom God has joined together!
(I have a picture of the two of them but I can't find it!)
And second, my mailbox showed me some love!!! Seriously, I've been practicing being nice to my mailbox, like Denise over at Count It *All* Joy does - She is getting love packages all the time! So I decided maybe I needed to be nicer to my mailbox. And Lo and Behold - it works!!!! Or, just maybe, I was nice to Denise?
She did a wonderful book review of this book on her blog, and she said she could tell from my comments that I would enjoy the book and that it should come live with me. I am a happy camper folks!!!
THANKS DENISE :*D
This is how it started out.....
This gorgeous view to share with the LORD this morning, and my sweet Gypsy all cuddled up in the blanket on my lap....
Yep, God is good and so is Life! =^..^=
Hugs & Blessings!
