As in chasing them, those tantalizing projects we just...
This month I've come across a couple of not-so-nice squirrels. Those that wreak a little havoc, in the real world, and in your sewing life.
This one is about a squirrel who had a little party in a family's house while they were on vacation.
Not quite three, but two squirrels came to play in my sewing room in January, and yes, they wreaked a little havoc in that I did not get my Island Batik quilt challenge complete by the 21st, which is when I'd figured I would! Meh, I've still got 10 days from that date, right?
My two squirrels are the result of joining in (finally!) with Project Quilting at Persimon Dreams.
11.1 was Notably Numeric which you can read about here.
11.2 was Team Colours which you can read about here.
Both of these projects fit the Island Batik challenge for January: make a scrappy quilt, any size. My actual original project is now a flimsy, and I could have done a fast all-over meander and got it finished by my January 21 deadline, but this quilt (the candles one you've seen glimpses of) needs much more special care than that, so I'm not rushing it. Both of these DrEAMi! projects are Project Quilting entries. So far, so good.
One more quick squirrel-type item which you may have seen in your email, Connecting Threads (affiliate link) has up to 50% off over 100 pink and read fabrics to celebrate heart month. I cannot tell you how much of their fabric I've snagged from these type of sales or the clearance section...
Thank you in advance if you do purchase something through my affiliate link; it helps to pay the $3/month US to have linky parties! Ooh, when I got the graphic above, I spied this gorgeous batik,'Fronds', for just $5.36/yard:
Be still my heart. (lol pun not originally intended) Similar colours to the quilt kit I recently got at bluprint, but that's another post. Thank you to those who did purchase something at that pretty amazing 60% off sale a couple of weeks ago. I never know who buys, just see the amount and my commission, which is 4%. 😊
Now, let's see what squirrels abound in your sewing rooms! Link up below.
