Tuesday news

Aren't these georgous?  Friend Laura had bought these Tonga Treasures late last summer (40 pieces - 10" squares) and then decided she was really unlikely to do anything interesting and fun with them, so lucky for me, she decided that I needed them.  In fact she brought me two packs of these marvelous batiks.  I'm going to go looking for the latest Schnibbles book that I know uses 10" squares.  (I know because I looked at it in Houston).

I did complete a "dresser scarf" (or skinny table runner) as my gift for the CTA Crazy Exchange. 

Remember I got the wonderful wysteria napkins.  I should have had my gift done last week, but alas I ran out of time.  So Jan will get this at our December meeting.  Then I have to come up with something for Susan, as my 'reply' for the napkins.  That will be due in January.   I am working on completing a Christmas exchange - but I cannot show you a picture [she reads my blog]  This time it happens that Caroline is my recipient, but she isn't my partner, so I don't know who I will be hearing from.  Oh this is fun!

I got 3 things sandwiched.  Now to the quilting part.  (nothing interesting to show you)  Happy days.

Lovely skinny table runner Marne. Aren't you lucky to have a friend who has no use for those beautiful batiks. Wonderful colours.
