I Spy lots of fun!

blocks I joined Karen’s I Spy Swap and sent in 40 five inch fabric squares from each of three fabrics.  Today I received 120 sweet little squares in my mailbox, all different.   Someday they are going to become an I Spy Quilt for grandkids. 

(By the way, did I ever tell you I have another grandchild on the way soon?)

Karen is so generous.  Besides all her hard work to organize this swap and sort all those blocks, she also sent a pretty little gift.  It’s one of her nifty Tool Time Tuesday sewing helpers…a little pincushion, scissor holder on one end of a ribbon and an ingenious spool holder on the other.  It will be very handy.

Thank you so much Karen.  This has been great fun!!

Great idea for kids quilts, those I spy quilts.. Both my boys still have theirs from when they were a lot younger.. Love the pincushion, spool holder tool, what a great little gadget. Guess what I'm about to do??? Its 7.30 am Tuesday 1st December here! Yoo Hoo... xx

Congratulations Annette! Nothing quite like a new baby in the family!

I also received my squares and love them all! What fun quilts will be made with these. Karen's clever little gift was so nice and unexpected.
