Splendid Sampler and some auction finds

This looks like a fun project that will last a year with 2 blocks a week until we hit 100 blocks.
Pat Sloan and friends ( I think about 80 designers have helped out to make is happen )
Pop by her site to get started. There will be bonus projects as well.
We started off with this cute little pressing/design tote. There is even a pocket for your 6 - 61/2 " ruler.

I think I will do a little more quilting on the little guy

Here is the first block ( I did post it yesterday but here it is again )

I plan on using up a lot of my bits and pieces as some of them are quite large. And this year that has been my plan to use up some of my own goodies before shopping. I know I will still get some shopping in but I will try to stick with my plan.

This past weekend we went to an auction and I found a couple of goodies
a set of sock dryers and some great wool.....

 Prairie Wool from Custom Woolen Mills ltd in Alberta 8 balls in all, should be enough for a sweater or poncho.

well that's it in a stitch for today
in stitches


  1. What a great find. Love the sock frames and the yarn looks snuggly. Oh, your blocks are very pretty too.
