About That

So another arbitrary list has been growing this week . . .

I realized I forgot to show you the Caddy Pad that my friend Sharon made me! Isn't it a clever design? {pattern in link} And I love the fabric and button she chose. Now where shall I take my iron? ;-)

Pellon has a new website, and boy is it looking good! Did you know there's oodles of projects there, in addition to all the helpful info about their products, which personally I use nearly every week.

As part of the Finish-A-Long Q1 link-up, Leanne at shecanquilt is hosting a series of tutorials this week. Do check them out! One of them I really appreciated was on Photo Tips for Quilt Photographers by Anne of playcrafts. I'm always interested in posts like this - now to take the time and energy to put them into practice!

Another FAITH Circle quilt was shared this week - this time by Mary Ann/maremare312. I'm always curious how the blocks I made look in the finished quilt, so here's my original Converging Corners blocks:

Oh and I couldn't resist sharing a pic of my grandgirl with her Easter basket - a little plastic-canvas creation I made for her mommy some 20+ years ago. Just a little reminder that what we create just may be cherished for a very long time . . .

And lastly, in addition to my giveaway of a copy of Patchwork, Please!, the lovely author, Ayumi, also has a copy to share, so check that out if you'd like another chance!

Meanwhile, I hope you have a great weekend!

Linking up with Really Random Thursday, on Friday once again.
