The Envelope Please!


I've been working lots of hours this week so there hasn't been much time at the machine - sigh! Just when I get in the mood to sew, too. Ugh! :-)

Anyway, I did manage to sort through the "bin o'kits" for small quilts and picked one. :-) woohoo! The envelope wasn't postmarked but the receipt inside was dated Nov '09; I think it's been properly aged. LOL




Ta-Dah!!!

I need to find time to quilt these little ones or my stack of small quilt flimsies will be as big as my stack of large quilt flimsies :-)

I hope you won't be too bored with my blog because I think it's going to be all about small quilts for awhile - I'm having way too much fun. teehee!!!

I hope you're having a fabulous week! I'm working later today but then I'm off tomorrow - woohoo!!!!!

I always appreciate your visits - thank you!

In Friendship!

Making the little quilts looks like a lot of fun. And just think, essentially "free" because you bought the kits a long time ago!

May Britt said...

So you too has a bin o'kit :) Small quilts is more easy to hang up around in the room, so I want to make more small ones now.

Diane said...

I'm making small ones too right now...we must be trendsetters or something!! ;)
LUV the red/beige combo!

Juliann said...

Great little quilt. That is my path back to getting some stitching done this summer too - make 'em small!

Small quilts are cool! Have a wonderful weekend!

Deanna said...

What's wrong with small quilts?

Maybe you could set a number to build and then quilt them all--sort of "and after the seventh flimsie, she quilted."

I look forward to seeing your projects, small or large.

Linda said...

Darling little quilt!! How nice to make something out of your "stash" It's like a freebie!! :-)

Carol said...

Very cute. I love small quilts.

Shakerwood said...

I like the thought of kits being "properly aged". Can I borrow that term?

Cute quilt and BTW, you're blog is never boring!

Wendy said...

Small quilts are a nice break from the bigger ones. I love having them around the house. Your new small quilt is adorable, I love the red.

Mary said...

I don't think small quilts are boring at all. I love the one you showed today. Keep 'em comin'!

Vivian said...

Aren't we lucky there's no expiration date on kits? Such a great little finish. That's exactly what we need some days. In fact, I think I'm going to work on a couple myself :)

swooze said...

Small is fast and FUN!!

Janet said...

It's all about the fun Darlene and how could we possibly be bored with any type of quilt? Just think of the room the smaller ones don't need for storing.

One can never have too many small quilts. They are a perfect size to decorate with.

Oh I love the little quilt, might have to use the idea.
