Tonight I will be cutting some red and blue fabrics into strips that will work for a string block or two. I will donate at least one of them to a quilt that is being made for Matt, an injured soldier. If I like making them, perhaps I'll set some aside for myself to make.
I am all caught up with my blocks for both sizes of the Hazel Ilene Diary quilt along. Both versions are coming out beautifully. I live laying them out on the floor and moving them around in different arrangements. I think the fabrics I chose will work well in the same room. The fabrics have a lot of reds and tans. Shelly is having a give away of Mary Ellen's Best Press in a mini spray bottle. Anyone may have a chance to win by leaving Shelly a comment on her blog.
I will need to spend some time at school this weekend. Midquarter grades are due and Monday afternoon I am doing a tie dye workshop for all the 5th and 6th grade band members. It will be fun for the kids, but I have to mix up the dye and put it into the squirt bottles before Monday! I think I will do a pair of socks for myself. I have plenty of tie dye shirts already.
