So I joined in this round of the Doll Quilt Swap for the first time! I have watched many rounds go by, and even though I love swaps through Flickr this one has always intimidated me. There are so many fabulous little quilts that come from this swap. It just felt like too much pressure! However, this round they are changing it up a little. The quilts in this round are supposed to be a real "doll quilt", so a mini of what a big quilt would look like. It sounded fun, so I put my name in the lottery! I got my partner, and I have been stalking and thinking. I came up with this combo (I might add a couple others to this.), which I hope she likes!
The husband and I got away a bit this weekend alone for the first time in almost two years! It was so nice. He even let me stop into a fabric store. Fabric Town USA...sounds so...glamorous, right? There was lots of fun eclectic stuff, and the staff was really fun as well. I started going through the clearance rack and found some Katie Jump Rope for only $5.99 a yard! I am thinking these will make great fall pillows.
I also got a new iron! So exciting...I know. My old iron was almost seven years old, and it just wasn't cutting it anymore. This one has been heavenly so far. I remembered reading this review a couple of years ago at Pink Chalk. The price was right, so I went for it. Looking good so far! I forgot what it felt like to use an iron that actually has steam!
