Delicious Color

Hancocks of Paducah sent me an email advertising a $6.99/yard sale.  With free shipping included for a $70 purchase, well, I was hooked.  The batik fabrics arrived last week.  Aren't they yummy?
 The guidelines for Lesson #3 arrived.  I will be working with 2 cool colors and 1 warm.  Isn't it funny to see that it's the same color scheme that arrived on my doorstep?  I've since swapped the yellow greens (too warm) for blue greens.  All of the super-dark fabrics are actually blues.
I really should be working on Lesson #3, but instead, I've been doing some hand applique.  Penny's Pinwheel is still on my portable design wall, and I am gradually piecing the back of her jacket.  I am hopeful that I will have the quilt top done by the end of the year.

I also made some more very skinny strips for railings on the Lesson #2 lifeguard tower.  Perhaps I'll get the top finished this weekend, and be able to quilt it soon.  Goals are good, and the cooler weather this week is truly helping me move towards them.  Happy Stitching!

Good buys at Hancocks sometimes My problem with them is the time it takes to get the packages. I'm too impatient. :)

Good luck with challenge #3. I'm enjoying seeing what you do and is giving me some ideas maybe for our guilds challenge.
