Loadsa faces


This morning, the guys took the littles to a soft-play place, and Cathi and I and my girls made faces (many jokes were already made about my girls making faces at one another...). And here are the results! Mine are the columns on the right, Sarah's are the two lines down the centre, Olivia's are top left and Cathi's are bottom left. I then made a couple of cards using a few of the faces. I definitely am going to order some different moulds, too. In fact, I'm going to do it right after I finish blogging!




After lunch, the big girls and the daddies went golfing (pitch & putt) and the littles stayed here with us to do dressing up and stuff like that. Cathi and I split up the lovely purple Civil War Repro fabric and pulled bits out of her CW repro collection that might work as well. We have decided to swap Dear Jane blocks in a 6" size - this is great for me, as I really like some of the DJ blocks, but have no real desire to do a whole quilt of them and Cathi is a big DJ fan already (check out her DJ quilt here - fab, isn't it?). With 6 inch blocks, I imagine I'll be able to satisfy my urge to make a good quantity of DJ blocks without a) making the ones I really don't want to and b) ending up with a huge huge quilt. I think I may end up with a lap quilt or something like that. Anyway, it will be fun - we are stealing the idea of a private swap from Karol Ann, with whom I am swapping African blocks - and basically going to do the same thing - swap more or less once a month, depending on schedules, with no pressure and no deadlines. We'll each make 2 identical blocks, keep one for ourselves and send the other. Fun.

Looks like you had fun with the faces! Can you tell me what a Dear Jane quilt is, please? I've not heard of it before - probably because I'm not a quilter....

The cards are great - they work really well. Can I place an order LOL

Also remember, African block first, then DJ block, then African...

Love those Civil War repros. The swap sounds like a great idea. Enjoy :)

Have you made holes so the faces can be stitched on, or are they glued on?

Oh Kate, You are going to think I'm a nincompoop! I've just left a comment on one of your posts from earlier in the month (the one about cleaning your shed) For some reason my google reader was set to show me older messages rather than newer ones and me being me and 11 pm with 1/2 a bottle of wine in my system I didn't notice the date of the post. So don't be confused...it's me being confused :o) Hope you have a good weekend.
