Join Us!

Okay, the TEXT Me a Charm Swap: Canadian Edition is officially open. We are now full!

Come and Join Us!

TEXT Me a Charn Swap: Canadian Edition

It looks like there is enough interest to run a Canadian Edition of the TEXT Me A Charm Swap. Leona gave us permission to use her format, so let's make it happen.

But as you probably know, I am TERRIBLE at making decisions. So I need some help. Here are the two options for the swap:

Option A: Everyone buys 1 yard/metre, and cuts into 56 squares. We'd aim for 28 swappers, so everyone would get 56 charms, 2 of each print.

Option B: Everyone buys 2 half yards/metres, and cuts each into 24 squares. We'd aim for 24 swappers and everyone would get 48 different charms.

Which one suits you best???

Thanks for your help.

A Wonky Quilt and a new Swap

Hello Friends! And Happy February. How is it already February? And time to set goals for A Lovely Year of Finishes. As you probably could have guessed, I didn't actually get my quilt top done for January. But I did get all of the blocks made. So it I'm carrying it forward for February.

Finally finished all the blocks. Now to square up and get this baby done.
Maple Leaf Rag Quilt - all the blocks are finally finished!
 My goal for February is to get my Maple Leaf quilt top and backing finished. I've actually started sewing a few of the blocks together, and it is one wonky quilt. The wonkiest I've ever made. And it isn't supposed to be a wonky quilt. Oh well. I'm just going to go for it.

And I am so excited to be in a new swap on flickr. Since it was a US only swap, I was so excited when Leona let me participate. (Never mind that I begged :)) But Katy and I were thinking that maybe we could start up our own Canadian Edition. What do you think? Do you want to swap some text charms?

Fabric for TEXT me a charm swap

We are thinking that we will aim for 28 Canadian swappers. If we all buy 2 half metres of fabric, we can swap 56 charms. What do you think? Any interest?

It is beautiful and sunny here! I'm off to enjoy the sunshine. Enjoy your day
