Now that I have all this time "alone" while the kids are at school - I found time to sit down and start my Spiderweb blocks using the "PURE" Scraps that I won from Sweetwater. I love this line of fabric! Another home run for the girls on the Sweetwater team!
I'm thinking about backing them with a solid flannel. Making them nice and warm for the Minnesota winter ahead!!
I had thought about doing a tutorial for these spiderweb blocks - but I found an awesome tutorial by Heather. If you decide to do the Spiderweb blocks - I highly recommend her tutorial!
AND - in other news for you LOCALS (locals meaning Duluth area). There is an awesome suedo retreat offered by Hannah Johnson Fabrics & Quilt Shop. She is having a Sewing Camp of sorts - once a month thru the end of the year.
I have decided to sign up for the November retreat. Why don't you join me?!!! It is on November 6th and 7th (my b'day weekend). The price is super cheap.. only $5.00 for Saturday and $7.50 for Sunday. You sew all day with other crafty ladies at the Lakeside/Lester Park Community Club. And you go home to sleep in your own bed.
At the moment - I'm only planning to go on Sunday. But hey, it's from 8am - 6pm... think of what I will accomplish without my husband or kids around!!
To Paris, With Love
