Late Monday, a box arrived. A box full of absolutely wonderful very early birthday gifts from an incredibly generous friend.
The first thing out of the box was this wonderful wool batt. It’s the perfect size for my Drunkard’s Path variation done in the French General Rouenneries line. I have the binding and backing for it ready. So all that’s left to do is get it basted and the hand quilting will begin.
Next out of the box was this stack of luscious pink batiks. If you’ve read my blog for any length of time you know that pink is my favourite colour. And that I firmly believe one can never have too many batiks!
Then this incredible stack of FQs – Paris Flea Market FQs, that is. I remember when that line first came out years ago. I still have some small scraps left from some pieces of the line I had from the first time. I’m already planning the quilt that will be made with these beauties, but for a while I’m just going to admire the beautiful stack. The quilt I’m planning will have some of the pink batiks in it as well as some other shabby chic fabrics from my stash. It will be such a joy to hand piece these gorgeous fabrics. Once the FQs are washed, I will start printing on them and get the shapes cut out. And now I know what the empty project box from yesterday’s post is going to contain.
Baxter thought the best part of the whole thing was that there was a box for him to explore. It’s a nice big box, loads of room for him to turn around. We were lucky to get this picture of him as he was quite busy inspecting every inch of that box. An empty box on the floor is a definite kitty magnet.
Last night was the Blue Jays’ home opener. Baxter and his pals were all ready for the game.
