There is a really nice little quilt shop 50 miles from here. They offer lots of classes and gatherings every month. A group of 6 of us decided to make the drive once a month to join the "Thrifty Thursday" group. It cost $5 to join. Each month you get a packet of fabric.....already cut...with the pattern included. If you attend the gathering....with your previous month's block finished....you get the next block free. If you miss a month, or don't complete the block...it will cost you another $5. If you keep up each month, you can end up with 12 different blocks....for only $5.....that is the "thrifty" part. :)
There were three fabric choices. Batiks, 30's Prints, or Civil War fabrics.
I decided on Civil War.
Show and Tell is encouraged.
I have not spent any time in my sewing room this past month....sad, but true. I am trying to use sewing as a "reward" for when I have my other work caught up.....does that tell you anything???
I did make a pillowcase for my favorite little boy......who really loves this story book...
This is his favorite page.....and gets him bouncing all over the place...
I love that little Monkey!
I bought a lamp at Target to put next to the reading chair I got for my husband....it sits in our bedroom, so he can have a quiet space....because....well....frankly....I don't like sharing mine! (It is in my sewing room).
