secrets


pssssssssssssttttttttttttt.............

hey YOU...............YEAH YOU

Can you keep a secret?
I challenged my friend in quilting........
we have till August to make a quilt (or top)
using strips
this will be a challenge for both of us as 
we have enough fabric to cover the United States and then some

not sure if I want to make a scrappy
OR a planned scrappy like Dunkins quilt above
OR........


strips of the same color family
made into a quilt
hmmmmm.......
I have been busy
and have a plan
it involves 11 fat quarters of each color family


we will see where this idea goes...........but I am excited
I cant show you more
probably showed you too much already! LOL
(but I wont have you done in........I love you guys!)



and this was a "play with charms" too
had a purple one out and some 2 1/2 inch strips of the lighter purple
so I sewed them together
this may be another idea in the works
I fell in LOVE with Julies quilt here

but I dont have any white or off white that I can use
so I was playing
OF COURSE I DO HAVE OTHER PROJECTS I AM 
SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING ON.........

(tapping foot with hands crossed)
but every now and then a gal needs to play right?

oh, and for secrets.............
just found out that my niece got engaged
while on vacation in Disney
she is so cute. she called me last night
and said Auntie I had to tell you
because my sister wants to post it on facebook
and I wanted you to know first.
how sweet is that?
she is a cutie pie and he is a nice young man
who is a go getter and not afraid of work
(YAY!)
so there are secrets all around here lately..........
but this one is still secret ok?

shhhhhhhhhhhhhh...........
dont tell Jackie!
