Parts is parts...

Last night all my TNT (Thurs. Night Therapy) girls bailed on me. Guess I'm gonna have to find some new sewing friends. lol The girl I work with, Becca, asked if she could come over and borrow my Cricut machine for a yearbook project she's doing for her daughter's school. While she and her sister were cutting out letters, I worked on my QST (quarter square triangles) that I am doing for a swap. I am using Triangulations paper, which I LOVE! Makes the little gems so accurate.

The swap is for civil war reproductions and shirting fabrics. The inspiration for this swap came from this photo....

I don't know where I saw this project but I labeled the photo "Jo Morton Swap Idea". You can check out her website here. Maybe I saw the quilt in a book. Anyway, that's where the inspiration for the swap came from. I'll be working on my little QST units this weekend.

I thought I would share these pretty cards too. My friend Neena made these at one of her Stampin' Up! workshops. She gave them to me as a hostess gift for the scrapbooking gathering I had last weekend. Sweet huh? :o) She does such great cards.



Have a great weekend. I'll check in if I get anything accomplished!
