Last chance for Pay it Forward!

Tomorrow is your last chance to sign up for Pay it Forward! This will be an easy payment for me if nobody signs up. He.

Laura over at Quilting Diva issued a challenge last month to quilt every day for ten minutes. Well, I missed it last month but I'm going to try it for (ahem, the rest of) this month. She had a post today showing some links from others who took the challenge and what they accomplished. For now I would be happy to accomplish finishing up that baby quilt. I thought I could whip that up in a few weeks but those few weeks have quickly multiplied. I hope 10 minutes a day will have it done by the end of April so that I can finally ship it off. And hopefully that trip to the post office will see Joyce's giftie off, too!

So April goal: finish that baby quilt, in 10 minutes a day!

In other sewing news...I bought some really cute fabric to make a purse. The fabric and pattern both arrived yesterday and I am thrilled with the look of the fabric. The line it was from was called Ginger, I think...maybe from Michael Miller? I had also decided I was going to make a dress and I got fabric for a pattern I already had, too. The fabric though doesn't seem to have the right hand for a dress. It seems more like a short or capri weight to me. So I am thinking on it. I guess that will teach me to buy fabric over the internet for a purpose besides quilting.

I've been listening to a lot of podcasts, and one called Sew Forth Now has caught my attention. It is mostly about fashion sewing and hence the inspiration to do a bag and a dress. Every episode she interviews someone and she has had some really interesting guests. You can catch it on iTunes or have a look at her blog. She is having an anniversary contest at the moment so if you're looking for prize potential stop over.

Sigh, my last day of being 33....


  1. A purse, how adventurous of you. I can't wait to see pics of the finished piece.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting so kindly. I've noticed that quilt every day challenge and wondered if it would work with my rather hectic life at the moment. There has to be a free ten minutes somewhere, right?

  3. Can't wait to see your purse! I'm so jealous. I still can't find my purse pattern. Looks like I'll have to bite the bullet and buy another one. I'm so cheap! LOL!
