Hoping to finish by 13th so I can hang it for Valentine's Day.
What really got me thinking about this quilt, in addition to the Valentine's colors, were all the half square triangles. You see, today was a gorgeous day and I spent the morning sipping Starbucks and early afternoon driving from fabric store to fabric store with rays streaming through my sunroof and birthday gift cards burning a hole in my wallet (compliments of some great friends, Char, Tab & Martin).
And burn right through they did.
Check out this Swiveling Cutting Mat I picked up for 1/2 price.
So the next time I need to cut a square (2x) on the diagonal...all I have to do is....position, cut once, then...
And cut again. (Oh and isn't that a sweet little pair of embroidery scissors? 30% off!)
I also bought a few other sewing notions and a larger cutting mat to replace my old worn one but I didn't photograph that. Instead, have a peek at this cute little fabric combination.
Shhh...can't say yet what they're for.
As you can see it was quite a productive morning. But that's not all. On my sunny, breezy cruise home I happened upon a "new to me" oldies radio station for a real trip down memory lane. So when I arrived back home, I pulled out yet another cool birthday gift ...
...it's got FM radio...so I can tune in my OLD and NEW oldies stations!
And, well you saw the results of my amazing day!
Hope yours was too!
