I am part of a swap and we are making 6" friendship stars from batiks. I have some odds and ends batiks from other projects so I have a little of them. Anyway, here are the first 12, three of each. When you only make a couple of small blocks at a time, the project goes so quickly. And I am including variety so I don't get bored.
Some friends and I are getting together today to sew all day! In a large community center, free of charge, lots of tables, and good lighting. We will work on a project, I'll show you that later, and I will take some batik to make some more stars, as I get bored easily working on only one thing.
Now that I have had time to look over the new Cotton Spice magazine, I have to recommend it. It is very personal, like getting a big newsletter, as opposed to a big glossy magazine. The photos are lovely and the article about color made me want to go out and buy new fabric in colors I normally don't use. I noticed that the print was large and the directions simple and easy, but the patterns were not simple and boring. And of course, who is not following Abby's story?
