Here is the finished girl quilt.
I should definitely have sewing club more often. It was a wonderful bonding time for Thisbe and I. I was very impressed that I didn’t have to give her much instruction or help at all. She even had a few machine issues that she was able to correct herself. I also got a ton done. When I finished my quilt I moved on to finishing up some linen notebook covers I had all prepped and ready,
and when they were finished I moved on to trying out journals with a fabric cover.
When I moved here my first online fabric purchase was for 8 yards of some super stiff interfacing. They say it is very similar to Timtex. I had big plans to make some boxes for all my video, dvd, and video games. Well, there was an address error on my part and so it took about 3 months for me to finally receive it. By that time I had already come to the realization that the box idea wouldn’t work and so I am left with a ton of stiff interfacing. I put it to use for the fabric journal and it worked great to give it a nice sturdy cover. I made two, and have used up about 6 inches of my yardage.
So, the give-away part.
I have no need for the two linen notebooks or the fabric journal. I was wanting to give them away anonymously here on base. The problem is that this base is so small that I am sure people would soon figure out who they came from, if they wanted to, and that would be embarrassing for me. So, I am asking for your help. Do you have someone in your life who needs a gift? A gift for no reason at all, or maybe there is a reason. Well I would love to send these out to them.
Here’s what you do:
Send me an email, april(at)bysmallmeans(dot)com, and let me know you have someone in your life that needs a gift. You can give me the address of this person if you want it to be shipped to them, or yours if you want it shipped to you so you can pass it on. I will give these away on a first come first serve basis and will update this post when they are gone. I will be shipping them from here, being as anonymous as I can. I would happily include a note of your wording if you so desire. Thanks ladies, we have found homes for all of them.
