Hey y’all! Yes, I’m totally waving at you! I just wanted to quickly update on some extremely important news. I delivered Bartering for Flowers today, and it was considerably well-received. My mother-in-law was genuinely surprised at the backing material and design, as well as the professional quilting that finished it off. She was expecting neither, as I had kept those gemstones to myself. She was also chuffed at how our coordinated selection of fabrics turned out to work so well together and achieve the delicate (yet, sophisticated) design she had desired. So, a major sparkle win!
But, the really good news … I get to keep the sewing machine a little bit longer! We’re talking until the end of September, which is perfect timing because that is when Grandma Sparkles is coming to visit. Oh, and don’t forget Grandma Sparkles will have the Magic Suitcase V2.0 in tow. I know y’all want to see me diving into that madness!
Now! Whew, sigh of relief. Bartering for Flowers was a hit, and I have a reprieve on the sewing machine removal. That means we can get on with other fun to do things, like broken herringbones! I’m creating a digital version mock up to assist everyone participating in the QAL (preview below) and the Flickr group is heating up, so be sure to share any fabric ideas there!
Okay, such a good day, I have to go sew.
P.s. Mr. Sparkles Says has received a few updates recently.
