Swapping

The 4 seasons swap project is officially underway. Fabrics are pulled and freezer paper has been marked. It is 11 pm, but since I am on a roll, I have the iron heating up and figure I may as well get the pieces ready to stitch. I have seen many swap pieces underway on all the blogs I have visited and they are all so incredible! What creative swappers you all are. Many of you have your projects underway and some are even closing in on being finished. Autumn is so close I can actually feel it in the air. Darlene, you will just have to take my word for it!

I have enjoyed some stitching in the evenings. Last week was very hectic and I can only say, I am glad it is the weekend. Sweet Hubby will be helping our #1 son put a deck on his house tomorrow, so I have a free day. I may run to Hobby Lobby, (I forgot blue variegated thread), but mostly, I will sew. I need to re-cut some applique pieces for the Masterpiece block. The Masterpiece may be only a block by the time I am finished. The pieces are so small it is difficult to get the right size seam allowance. Cut it too small and you can not turn it, cut it too big and it slips through the other side. There is really no inbetween...it needs to be just so. I think I have used the F-word several times in working this block....that would be Fudge!!!

Well the iron is hot and the clock is ticking....it is so quiet here I can actually hear the clock ticking!

I think that since you are using that elusive "F" word so much that your brain must be giving you subliminal messages - you need to eat some fudge! Just a theory.

Glad to see you've found time to stitch, I was beginning to think we'd lost you. Enjoy this morning at church and let me know how it went.

Fall...did you say Fall? The only fall I feel is when I fall on the floor from heat. :-) LOL

Looks like an interesting project - I need to get started, too.

The fabrics you've chosen for the swap are very pretty. I'm looking forward to seeing what you will do with them.

Sounds like you burned the midnight oil on Saturday, just like me. Your fall fabrics are delicious, as fall is my favorite time of year.
