Yippy and OMG

Recentally I recieved my prize that I won from the sew mama sew giveaway. It was from http://ducksandrabbits.blogspot.com/ and it the cutest fabric. Red Letter day by Lizzy House.

Just look at the little ducks. How can one resist it?

The best part is my giveaway buddy is a teacher too. Thanks again for the giveaway.

I also am excited because I got a new camera. Compare these to picture of the new fabric.
With point and shoot

With DSLR

So much better with my nikon dslr then my little sony point and shoot. Now I just have to get back into practice with photograph.

Plus my rotary even foot that my mom got me for Christmas just came in. It is such a nifty little foot, it hems, it sews on bias tape, and it does rolled hems. Can wait to try it out.

But here is the real OMG moment for tonight. I almost screwed up my first block for my first quilting bee ( a twist on tradition). I was cutting half square triangles and the ruler slipped. I was just a little short of 3 inches. I thought I was going to have to write my bee buddy and tell them how I failed. However, I made it all work on with some scant 1/4 seams. Look how pretty the pinwheels turned out.

Now I just need to add on the log cabin part. However, it is time for bed. Night all.

  1. Looks good to me - I had a few issues too with getting it to 8/1/2 inches finished and was doing a bit of scant sewing too!

  2. Yay! I'm so glad it arrived safely. And the new blog looks great :).

    I love those pinwheels - is that the cool fabric that looks like graph paper? I've so gotta get me some of that.
