Mangia, Mangia......

As far as I can tell, *Mangia* means *so eat!* in Italian.  Anyway, you get the idea, right?  These two projects are from the group Mangia, Mangia.  Both the apron and placemat are panels.  The placemat has three others in the group.  I'm just finishing another one, but didn't get it done last night.  They're pretty cute, don't you think?  I actually lined the apron with one of the coordinates and that made it go together in just an afternoon.  Quick and easy!  Maybe you know someone who might like this as a Mother's Day gift?  I just did a little quilting on the placemats and bound them with a red stripe coordinate cut on the bias for interest.

Well, with the beautiful weather around here, it's been a little quieter this week @ Fab-Etc.  But....that means we can work on cutting those 1800+ Shop Hop block kits.  I am happy to report that we are nearly done cutting ~ woohoo!!  Now, I need to write my directions and have those printed and then we can start *stuffing* bags!  Whew....always feels good when we get that little chore done.
Today?  Well, Jan and I will find something fun to play with, I am sure.  A few Fall/Autumn prints have arrived and Jan sewed a cute one onto the bottom of a towel yesterday after she helped a customer with her 60 degree tablerunner.  Okay....time is getting away from me.  Off to the shop for fabric fun!
