Carolyn Friedlander was in North Carolina for the weekend teaching classes. On Saturday she was scheduled to teach “Olive” at Studio Stitch in Greensboro (about 90 minutes away). At the very last-minute on Friday night, I checked with a friend to see if there were any spots left. Lucky for me there was!!
So, yesterday, I made up 3 of the 4 tree blocks in class, using Hawthorne Hues and Cotton and Steel Basics. I love the blues and the corals/oranges. One more block to go in Navy and Red. I am thinking of using Mustard, Bone and a Grey for borders.
I had some happy mail this week. The first package is yardage of some of the new Kona solids and a new color card. I ordered from Fat Quarter Shop who has great service. Did you know that you can just add a note, at point of sale, to label your Kona cottons!!! I love it and will now always ask.
Just a FYI, the color card was not a single card. You get the old one with an insert sheet of the new 32 colors. I thought the description was a little misleading but the FQS do mention at the end “insert”, so I thought I would mention it here – just a heads up. Description: “The Kona Cotton Solids Color Card features 303 cotton swatches. Swatches are approximately 1″. This color card already includes the 32 new Kona colors insert.”
Lastly, but definitely not least, I bought some of the grey, white and black prints from Frances Newcombe’s Cherie from Hawthorne threads. I love it!!
I will have an update next weekend on my big tidy up….I spent all day today going through my recent purchases (probably the last 6 months), putting the yardage around the comic book boards that I use adding what I can back into my sewing room. [OH, YES….I have an overflow room at the moment].
