ncredible Shrinkers. Simple 2.5" squares of Hope Valley. This was a lovely, easy block to make since she had already cut 2.5" strips for us. I put them together while watching an old BBC rendition of Martin Chuzzlewit on my computer.
And what about cashing in? Take a look at this loot! I won this yardage of Erin McMorris' Sock Monkey fabric from Julia on Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.
And what about these goodies from Karen, as part of the Old Red Barn Co. group's May Swap? There was a chocolate bar that got stolen by thieves before the photo session, and the other things are some cool shoelaces, long quarters of fabric in moody purples and greens, some interesting "stash record" binder pages where you can staple swatches from your stash for record keeping. And the most amazing thing of all was this pieced block that you can barely get a glimpse of.
It's a pickle dish block! Wow! Is that not amazing! It's simply the best! Thank you so much, Karen! I love it!
