Oh joy! The other day I came home from work and found a BIG envelope from Cynthia in my mailbox. The blocks from the Siggy swap had arrived! I am so excited, there are so many beautiful blocks, and it will be a lot of fun making a wall hanging with them. Cynthia and Tracey both have pictures of the blocks nicely laid out in different patterns on their blogs. I'll have to find time to play with mine...
Also, being a regular reader of Cynthias blog, I read her post about the 365 day challenge on Leanne's blog and I am just so easily led into new projects, so of course I HAD to do this one LOL. Yesterday I started cutting fabric, and I have lots of ideas for this quilt. It is a journal quilt where I write one entry every day for a year, and make a lovely quilt with the 365 journal fabric pieces. I will have the kids make a few entries, do some photo transfers, and generally record our lives for one year. I think this will be a great quilt for my grandkids to snuggle under (in about 20 years LOL) and read the entries made many years ago... I will have to make sure I use a fabric marker that doesn't fade! If any of you have suggestions I will be so grateful :)
