Hilachas is the Spanish word for those little loose threads that fall all over the floor and sewing area as you finish sewing and snip the tail end of the thread off the sewn area. So does this blog entail the odds and ends of topics of interest, leaving more loose threads to ponder...
It is now time to mail our quilts for the Hands2Help Charity sponsored by Sarah at "Confessions of a Fabric Addict."
Here are my two donations to "Happy Chemo" patients.
Yes, I know they look like the same quilt but look closely and you'll notice that they are indeed different. Before she died, my MIL made a pile of fan blocks since she was fascinated by them. I've kept them through the years and finally decided to do something with them.
Other things going on. A swap group I'm sewing with is working on mug rugs. I had specified a summer mug rug from my swap partner and she surprised me with this delightful mug rug. Thanks so much, Mary. It's perfect. I love those cute flip-flops.
I've had my eye on a quilt-along that's been going on since March. I finally decided that I really like it so bought the "Long Time Gone" booklet. I had been putting it off because the booklet is $32 and I thought that was pretty pricey but finally went for it since I like the quilt so much. Now I'm playing "catch-up" and have completed 2 blocks.
