Charming Braids.....

Okay....this is the newest addition to our Dollar Menu patterns I was telling you about last time.  I decided to call it Charming Braids.  I made it using 5" charm squares of Moda's group called *Wrens and Friends*.  It's baby quilt size ~ about 40" x 48" but you could easily make it bigger just by adding more squares or adding some borders.  I handed it off to Nikki from The Country Quilter and you've just got to see the fabulous quilting she did on it.  I told her I thought she really brought it to life!  We've got the patterns ready, however, we've sold out of the charm square packs.  But.....I did just get in some layer cakes from this group, so maybe we can do some *chopping* and make up some packs that would work for this quilt.....stay tuned!

How was your weekend?  An hour shorter?!?  I am happy to report that I managed to send my tax info off with the retired guy this morning to hand off to the folks that will prepare them and sign and explain anything necessary if I am ever audited!  (Not a happy thought, is it?)  Now...it's full speed ahead on our Tri-County daffodil projects.  We've got some good ideas that we will bring to fruition in the next week or so.  Jan taught her excellent Beginning Needleturn Applique class today.  Everyone was having a lot of fun....wonder if it was that chocolate she brought or just her fun, entertaining personality?  Interested in the class?  Well, she'll probably be scheduling another one next month, so watch the website and blog. 

Okay.....I don't know about you, but my body clock is confused with this spring forward thing.  Think I'll go stitch a bit and then head for bed.  Night all!
