You Kick Ass, My Friend! and a Quick Quilting Update

Due to the selfless efforts of my good friend, I now have a "new and improved" blog! (Thanks so much! You rule!) Oh yes, and as you can see, I can now properly hyperlink text! Oh yes, the skills improve daily.


Here's some of the prettiness that I've collected for quilting.
Because I'm so bloody keen, I bought myself some quilt blocks on eBay. No idea how to use them, where or when, but dammit they're cool, and so I had to have them.

This one has several copies. I think they're iron-ons (the instructions aren't in front of me at the moment).

Some of these ones are silk. So soft and smooth! Any suggestions for use? I thought perhaps a tote bag or small purse. Maybe a quilt? They're each about 5-6 inches tall.

Now this is just square-happiness. I took the easy route out and bought some squares already cut and combined on eBay. I think creating my own pallatte will be fun, one day, when I actually have a clue as to what I'm doing.

The strawberries (noticing a them, perhaps?:p) are only a teeny piece, and so I'm not sure what to do with them. The two fabric pieces below were bought in rather copious quantities, and so they just may become a garment, when I get the guts/time to try!

How pretty are those! I need to get on the ebay train. I still don't have anything that nice for my quilts!

And you're most welcome! The blog looks great!

I must say eBay can be dangerous! Too much nice stuff!
