Crafternooning Time

Finally, the quilt kits have all been sent to my fake sorority sisters, the gammas. It truly did take me forever, which is why I say this with a bit of humility...TIME TO GET CRAFTING LADIES!! Oh yes, you know how it goes...13 X 13 inch fabric squares with an 1/2 inch on all sides that will be sewn into the quilt so don't decorate right to the edge. Send me pictures of all crafternooning (thank you Drea for my favorite new term). All quilts intended for J, H, and K are sent to me and you all have to designate someone to receive those meant for me. And, drumroll....they are due by August 21st because that is my birthday and I think it will be really fun to get them then, like a brilliant birthday gift. And, it's not too close to R's wedding and gives me a bit of time before I head back to work. But mostly, and I say this as a mother, because I said so.

Ah, a deadline. Funny how that seemed to take some of the pressure OFF. August 21st I can do. I think. My GOD, we've had a lot of babies. Gamma: NO more getting knocked up until these quilts are COMPLETE.

All gamma quilt squares for Melissa are to be sent to me! We've emailed about this, but thought I'd put it here so all the info is in one easy place (and so that Melissa knows we've already sorted it out because we love her and Jude!)...

Dear Tigerlily Tinkering,

HELP! I am supposed to be hosting a crafternoon, and I'm feeling like I'm so unprepared, that this will be a crapternoon. I have a sewing machine, but what other supplies should I amass before my friends arrive?

Best regards,

Sewn not together

Dear Sewn Not Together,
Never fear. When it comes to crafting, it's impossible to have a bad time. Fabric and a sewing machine combined with good friends and food guarantee success. Good luck!
