Finally, after months of no Internet, I have INTERNET! The Dingbat is BACK! Thank to Cox's cable and Beloved Monkey Boy! Since I missed Blogtoberfest I decided I will make it up by posting just about everyday in November. During my absent I did get some quilting done. I joined a swap last summer in one of the quilty groups in Yahoo. We swapped mini wall hanging with just a simple pumpkin design. The swap mom got permission from the designer
Amy of Citypark Girl fame had design. you can get the pattern here: http://amyscreativeside.com/ Super simple and was fast to make. The one of the top is what I received and the one on the bottom is what I sent out. The only requirement was we had to use a border with pumpkins in it. I was temped to bling my up a little bit but didnt.
I really like this design because it can be used for October and November! I encourage everyone to join a quilty swap every now and again. The challenge will get your creative juices flowing and hone your skills. I just joined yet another online swap, this one is for a mini quilt no bigger than a sheet of notebook paper, think of all the possibilties!
Thanks to all my internet buddies and bloggers I have more than enough owl fabric for Grandma's Hooters project. Later this week there will be a vote for which block to use and a winner for the one who voted for the winning block. I cant decide on a block, I have 3 to chose from. See ya later this week!
Keep on Stitch'n On!
