I hope Holly won't mind me posting a little update for her. Since it has been a crazier than normal summer for some of us, Holly has graciously gifted the month of August as an extra catch up month and won't be posting a block for us to do. Thanks, Holly! And here's to getting all caught up as fall and school and routine roll in over the next couple of weeks. Cheers!
Hello Ladies! With a certain friend in from Germany (you know who you are) and a family vacation to AZ, I have not had time to post my tutorial. I will have it up hopefully in the next week. Until then, here is a sneak peak at the colors to start collecting, pick two: red, deeper yellows, navy ish blue & gray. Think masculine, non juvenile fabric. It will be for my son's bed.
We will be doing something like this. I will be sending you Kona white :)

If you are participating in the polaroid swap, how many fussy cuts do you want to send to each person and therefore receive that many?
Please comment, telling the group how many you plan to send to each person so that each person knows how many to send you in return.
If anyone knows of an easier way to organize this, just holler!
emily (said she wouldn't mind sending 10 or more)
kristin (has opted out)
Since we are cutting and not sewing for each other, we can move up the deadline. How about the first of September??
I have an envelope filled with more fussy cuts if there is one more person who wants to join in. Just let us know if you want to jump in.
Introducing March, April, May and June. This year has been busier than I expected. I really enjoyed working on each of these squares. I hope that they will please the receivers :) Despite their lateness...sorry ladies.
(Why didn't I take all the pictures on the floor? My iron cover has seen better days.)
I also included a few things that have kept me busy...
scraping popcorn ceilings in prep for new floor!
FYI: The few episodes I have seen of Dexter, I am convinced he has help draping all that plastic. What a chore.
I new blanket for my great nephew. Can't wait to hold the little cherub!
More sewing for the Children's theater. This was a personal favorite.
Sleeping Beauty's Dress
I also spend some time on a birthday outfit for my Ruby and dance costumes for one of my daughters dance class...You're in luck no pictures :)
I went a little crazy with the rotary cutter. For most fabrics I have enough for everyone, for some I'll have to divide and conquer. Everyone will get at least 25 each. No need to send me back the number I send you. I had the fabric so I thought I might as well keep cutting. If you don't like a few that I send you (or more than a few) neither one of us will feel bad that you don't use them all. :)
P.S. I'm noticing a lot of birds!
One more thing: Melissa- I don't have your address. Could I have it please?
