I Did It!!

Last week I told you I was working on a baby quilt for my niece who is due in late Oct. and I actually 'did it'~ I actually finished it!!! I bought a kit at my local quilt shop and it is called 'Pinkie and Blue Boy'. I love kits cuz all the cutting was done for me!!
I did the pink version and now I need to get it machine quilted, then binded, but otherwise the top is finished!! Ta-da!!! Now I need to make a blue/brown version, as she won't know what the sex of the baby is until later. So hopefully I'll have one left over for someone else in the family later on. (That is my plan anyway).

It is mostly half-square triangles and you just randomly place them all around. Not too hard for me, in fact I enjoyed playing around w/them on our dining room table. It felt like I was playing a kid's matching card game or something. ha Anyway, one down and one to go!!

For those of you who've been waiting for the new Buttermilk Basin patterns to come in, well I just got mine in today's mail and can't tell you how excited I am about these new ones Stacy has designed!! Here's a sneak peek at some of them. These are not all, but just a few of the ones I ordered for my Etsy shop, which I hope to have listed in the next day or two. I wasn't able to get all of them that she came out with, but I did get quite a few, however, I have limited amounts of each one. Just leave me a comment on this post if you're interested OR you can email me if you want.

I do offer them at a slight discount (to offset shipping costs, not to undercut anyone), just an added perk I like to offer my customers, and I do offer international shipping to just about anywhere. In fact, about half my sales come from overseas, so I really don't mind at all. I might even try to do kits on certain ones.

I can't wait to get started on these two!!And I just got a few more cross stitch charts for those interested.....Well, I sold out of my hand-dyed linen, but I have a few more ready to go and I'll be offering on there as well, so stay tuned and check back again soon!

Thanks for your visit! I always enjoy having you stop by!!
