Be attitudes and Gifts






My friend Cindy from Just Cindy is working on a Be Attitudes quilt from Art to Heart.
When I first met Cindy on blog land she was making some beautiful applique towels from the same book, so I bought the book in hopes of making the quilt.
Years later, I never made the quilt and when I saw that Cindy was making it, I decided to join her.
I made all the blocks first so I could clear my table of all the fabrics I wanted to sew.
Also, a few weeks ago Cindy sent me some lovely gifts. She sent some crochet dishcloths that I love using, a wonderful pattern and lots of luscious fabrics for my crazy quilting quilt of which she too is creating one.

Then my other friend Cyndi from Blue Bird sewing has gifted me several times during the year with charms for my hexie quilt and this month she sent me 2 boxes of fabric and a beautiful cosmetic case, with key ring and tissue holder. Cyndi makes bags to sell and her workmanship is to be envied.
Thank you both .

Love those "Be Attitudes" blocks, Betsy. Those will make a really adorable quilt. And yes, you are loved and should be spoiled! I'm happy you liked your little gifts.

XOXO,
