Taking A Break!

The cleaning, tossing, rearranging, organizing, etc continues. It's definitely a major project and one that I didn't realize would be so big. I'm very determined to get it done and get rid of the anchor hanging around my neck. I know it'll feel wonderful when I'm finished. :-)

But a break was needed so last night I worked on these blocks for a small project. This project has been calling out to me for a several months and I decided it was time last night. Hopefully they will be into a quilt top later today. My DH has been ill the past few days and I'm feeling a bit punky this morning so sitting at my sewing machine may be just what the doctor orders.

Jeanette, your e-mail about how I prep my applique arrived as "no reply" however if you check out Wendy's blog she has a wonderful tutorial on her side bar for freezer paper applique - my preferred method for prepping. Good luck! :-)

Thanks for popping by and thanks for the e-mails regarding my need for a rescue team. LOL

Come back later - there might be a quilt top for you to see (this would be my first finish for 2009 - woohoo)

In Friendship!

Can you please give me a link to Wendys blog?
You got me hooked on the Tisket Tasket BOM. My colors look alot like yours, but your applique is way better.
