Just a little peek-a-boo



Well, we can't have the reveal until my swap partner receives them now can we?

I have made the pincushions for the Pincushion Swap and will be posting some goodies to my swap partner this week. I do hope she likes everything!

I stopped by the quilt fabric shop last weekend and this little bundle of lovelies needed a new home.


Our fat quarters are a little bigger here - 20 x 22 inches - so these beauties are equivalent to a layer cake and for $2 each a good buy.

I'm just doing my bit for the economy.

Hope you enjoy some sewing time this weekend.

Happy Stitching...Ann

  4. What a tease...but it does look cute! And those fabrics...I always admire those colors and prints, but can't get past how girly they seem to be to figure out what I'd do with them. I'm sure you'll have no trouble turning them into something wonderful.

  9. Ann, your sneak peek is fantastic, I can't wait to see the whole thing when you are ready to reveal it. I love it just from the little pictures! Is it applique and embroidery?

    The fat quarters are beautiful, what a great combination of prints and colors. That will be so much fun to work with!

    Enjoy!
