Saturday I was invited over to Pam’s for a fun day of quilting. It is always a good day when we can spend it together doing what we love. I packed up a few projects and headed on over. Pam has recently aquired a new toy, a used gammil in wonderful condition, just waiting for us to learn how to use her. We spent a bit of time just playing on that, and then I got down to business making amchristmas gift. I would love to share more about that, but alas, that person who it is for may read about it here, so you will have to wait to hear about that. I also spent some time working on a swap joined online. This swap is a friendship star. We send in seven each month and get seven back. I joined one that is Christmas colors. Each month we have a color theme assigned. It is so fun to get those “squishy” envelopes back in the mail and see what everyone sent. I am working ahead and here is a peek at my November blocks in progress.When you are doing a swap, you want everything to be very accurate. I have found using a paper method to give me that accuracy. Pam told me about a computer program that I could print whatever size I need whenever I need it.I ordered this program called Triangulations and was very impressed with how quickly I could sew the half square triangles that I needed. It’s nice to know I have it on hand for whatever size I need.
Our play date went so very quickly, as it always does. It was a great day to get a few things done and get motivated to get a few more Christmas gifts made!
