I want to tell you about some awesome things going on that you should check out. Immediately if possible.
First: have you heard of the exciting and upcoming Shorts on the Line? You can find more details and a full schedule here.
Second: I don't have any handwork to show today, the hexagons and other fabrics I worked on earlier this week are for a secret project. I'm worried I'll give it away by posting more pictures! However, be sure to check on Katie's Handmade Parade today, lots of great projects as usual! If you've been curious about the Handstitched class several talented bloggers are taking there are a few posts about what they've been up to.
Third: I have been busy making more swoon blocks. I'm up to four. Pictures to come.
Fourth: have you heard about the Soda Pop QAL that Allegory is hosting? Go here if you haven't. It's such a pretty quilt from Katy, per usual. I just figured out what fabrics I'm going to use! I got a most unexpected and delightful gift from Bianca this week!
Valori Wells line Cocoon (I know, right?! Awesome!)!!!
FIFTH! Katy, of the previous paragraph and Fat Quarterly loveliness, is hosting a QAL too! Have you seen her Hexy MF quilt? It's to die for. I love it. I want to steal it from her because it's perfect. Now I get to make my own! I'm going to call mine "I'm hexy and I know it" instead, because I can't get that song out of my head, and I kindof like it :)
Details are being posted on Fat Quarterly's website here, so be sure to go see if this is a project you'd like to do. This will be an heirloom quilt if I have my way. Future grandchildren will I have already ordered my paper pieces and am planning to use most of the same fabric as Katy for the flowers, but I'm going to use a text fabric for the centers. I'm pretty excited about that.
Finally, does anyone know if you're allowed to bring a needle onto an airplane? I'd love to take some of these hexagons and fabrics to get started when we fly to CA next Saturday but I hate how you practically have to undress to get through these days and would really hate to be held up by a needle if I'm not allowed to have one....If you have any experience with this I'd love to hear it!
And if you read that whole thing you deserve a medal...!!
