I’ve been trying to get this post done for a couple of days now but my internet was having problems. It seems to be doing ok now though. (insert cheersl!)
I decided that this post is being brought to you by the number 2. This is for a couple of reasons. The first is that I finished 2 sample quilts for Suppose.
this pattern. I have to say my personal favorite is the half circles one but I have a soft spot in my quilting heart for circles. So I haven’t been completely idle during the holidays. I was especially happy to get these quilts done because now I can work on the things I got for Christmas.
Now for the second reason 2 is our number today. I wanted to brag a little about my husband. The number 2 applies to him because he is actually a twin. Last weekend his cousin put up some old pictures on Facebook and I stole a couple of them.
Here he is on the left with his older brother and his twin brother. Isn’t he so adorable!! I haven’t seen very many pictures of him growing up because they had a flood and most of that stuff was in the basement so I love it when I can see some.
Now the reason I wanted to brag about him is that he actually got me a couple of late Christmas presents this week. One was a circular embroidery attachment for my sewing machine. I’m very excited about that because as I’ve already said I love circles. He also got me a kit that I’ve been wanting for months.
I saw this quilt hanging up in one of the local quilt stores and I fell in love with the name of it, Chippewa Nine Patch. My husband is from the Chippewa Cree tribe. I kept going back and looking at it and eventually fell in love with the quilt too. I half-heartedly looked for the pattern a few times. Then finally I couldn’t resist any longer and asked someone about it. They had one pattern left in their last kit. They had apparently had this kit for a long time so I actually got it at a great discount! I’ve started cutting out strips for the nine patches this morning and I can’t wait to make the quilt. So I’ll wind down on my rambling for today so I can go get more done.
Don’t forget to sign up for my giveaway. I’ll be drawing for a winner tomorrow. I’ve loved receiving and reading your comments on it.
