Squishies in the Mail
Friday's mail run brought two 'squishies' in the mail. One was this pair of blocks from the QIAD Birthday Block Swap. I signed up for this swap at the beginning of the year. We picked the color/block we wanted, then on your birthday everyone in your group sends you a block. I think I've sent out 3 blocks so far this year, have 3 made to be sent later in the year and need to make another 5.
My plan is to alternate these blocks with various blue & yellow stars. This of course is subject to change, but I have been buying yellow fabric, including these this afternoon:
As for my other 'squishy', it really wasn't very squishy.
It was my new Martelli Rotary Cutter. I love this thing, and had completely worn out my original cutter. For the last week I've been using a Fiskar cutter which is OK, but my not my favorite. I'm SO glad this cutter finally arrived.
