Cre8tive Gifts

The Cre8tive Quilters group members are awesome... what more can I say?? Jill sent me this great little tote for keeping my sewing supplies in. I fully loaded it last night and look forward to using it when I do more hand binding. It's purple, what more could I ask for! I LOVE IT JILL!

Suzan's block arrived yesterday and in the packaged she included a beautiful pair of earrings! They are purple too!!! Yeah! Thanks so much Suzan. I'm going out to supper tonight with the girls and they will look so nice with my outfit.

I've also received some great fat quarters from some of my friends on the group, but I'm trying to patiently wait until I start putting the quilt together before I play with my new fabric. I can't believe the wonderful purple fabrics that have been sent my way! I LOVE PURPLE!! Thank you so much for your kindness.

I was telling Jen about my "Survivor" hat, so she wanted to see what I had done with it. I bought a cheap pink cap at Shopko, then I printed out a couple pages of the survivor logo on fusible fabric. I cut out one and pressed it on my cap the night before we left for our trip. It stayed well enough for the weekend, but when I got home, I pressed it good and then did an applique stitch around it. I realized the stitch I was using didn't look the greatest, but it's done. I'm using the logos for my secret project and had I not been so tired last night, they would have been done.
