Last weekend went by so fast! I feel like I just wrote Friday’s post. Saturday’s Friendship strip exchange and sit ‘n sew at the shop was so much fun! Everyone was cutting and exchanging strips for different projects from Edyta. I did manage to get some stripping done myself!! LOL!
These are some of the strip sets I will be cutting my farmhouse blocks out of. Love the fabric! Most of the fabric is from the kit I purchased from Edyta, but I did end up swapping out a few strips for ones from the exchange.
Pat, my co-host holding up one of her farmhouse blocks. She cut her strips a little wider than I did. I think I’m going to put a variety of sizes in my strip sets. Adds to the fun!
This is the Sizzix fabric cutter we use at the shop. Makes cutting strips a dream! It is so fast, easy and fun!
Look at ALL the strips I came home with! I can’t wait until next month when we exchange more. There are a few projects in Edyta’s book that I am thinking of making with all my strips. I’d love to make them all, but sigh not enough time.
I wanted to thank everyone for all the wonderful birthday wishes to the girls. They enjoyed each one of them! They had a wonderful time this weekend. Everyone aka Scott and myself survived! Yesterday we had grandparents over and my sister came home for the weekend. We had one little surprise left for the girls yesterday. We were all hiding cans of Silly String so as soon we sang “Happy Birthday” and they blew out their candles, we sprayed it all over them!! It was so funny! They SO were not expecting it! They were covered! They looked like Silly String sculptures! Scott videotaped the whole thing and we watched it several times last night. Laughing more each time!
Glasses update…I will be picking them up Thursday! Yippee!! I will be getting my eyes dilated as well. Should be another fun appointment.
I’m off to the bakery to pick up THREE DOZEN strawberry jelly doughnuts for the girls’ class today! I love doughnuts. I’ve never met one that I didn’t like. The girls are just like me! Of course, all the doughnuts aren’t for the class…I had to get a few for home too!
