Betsy's Closet Stitch-A-Long...

and you are invited! So, come on along...and join Jenny of Elefantz and myself in creating a beautiful little quiltee with Embroidery Blocks. (Brenda Riddle did such a wonderful job with this cute little pattern!)We will begin this month and embroider our way through all nine blocks. Hoping to get finished just in time for Christmas! (Sure hope it's THIS this would make a great little new quilt for Ely!)
  I picked out fabric yesterday...and will be adding some extras from my stash.
And, the postman delivered my pattern from the Acorn Quilt & Gift Company...creator of the pattern. It's available from other sources...but I chose them because the price is great at only $9.95 for the entire quilt! And, they use priority shipping. I ordered on Monday, and it was at my door on Wednesday! Now, it might not be that fast for you...after all it isn't ALL that far from Arizona to Alabama I guess! But, it will be quick I'm sure!
And, they sent along the best little "extra" a booklet titled Home Comforts which has seven little quilts in cool is that! The one on the back cover has the most adorable little scallop border, and I'm thinking that would be a good "addition" to my Betsy quilt too! You know I just can't leave a pattern the same...always have to "make it my own" keep my muse happy!
So, hope you'll join Jenny and I in this Stitch-A-Long...just hop on over to our blog about the event and sign up today! We'd also love to see your photos as we stitch together!
Hope to see you there...
