HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! and freebie notice

Standard

A big Valentine hug to everyone! Hopes for lots of candy, dinner out, and especially quilty stuff!  A great pattern for hearts is a free download on Sarah Vedeler Designs site.  She is the designer that has designed the BOM for The Quilt Show for 2013.  She has made hers out of the Dupioni Silk fabric mix that is available in quilt stores (at least thats what it looks like to me).  It is very nice, modern, and very colorful.  Take a look at her site.   www.sarahvedelerdesigns.danemcoweb.com/    Click on the SHOP tab and scroll down to the Free Downloads pic, click there and you’ll find the heart quilt.  I love color!

New tool – to me! Well I finally stopped by the closest Harbor Freight in Sugar Land. Forever I have been wanting to stop by and pick up some 18″ long magnets that help hold the quilt tops I am quilting. I did manage to get several and really like them. BUT, as important, hanging right next to my magnets was a small magnetic wrist band.  It has wide elastic with a velcro closure and is advertised to hold screws, etc. that one might be working with.  HOWEVER, look how wonderful it is to hold a small pair of thread snipping scissors as well as pins.  FANTASTIC…this way I always have my scissors, don’t always need a pin cushion handy, and don’t have a pair of scissors poking me in the “girls”!  Whoo Hoo!  What a find.  I love both things!  Probably only longarmers would use the magnets but the wrist band is super!  I have researched and find that the claim of a magnet near our computerized machines not being good is a false assumption.magnets in use

My fantastic new find – the wristband.  It is truly comfortable!
