A few spools of thread, some straw needles for appliqué, and a pair of Karen Kay Buckley scissors. A student had a pair in the class I taught last week - awesome! They have teeny tiny serrated edges for a good accurate "bite" when clipping appliqué. Underneath it all is a piece of antique (1850's) Japanese indigo fabric. I'm hoping I can do it justice and turn it into a pincushion for our upcoming book. Oh, I was also on a hunt to find a tailor's thimble for Glenn. Score!

Polly and I are very excited about our Indigo and cream collection. There are 4 quilts in the process of being made and I'm sort of behind schedule. I need to get back to work. This time, Moda sent a box of fabric scraps to Polly. You know, the huge box of strips cut that are left over after they make the salesman sample cards...... Polly saw the pictures of the boxes I have gotten in the past, but it's still a shock to see that huge box, isn't it Polly? So, Polly would like you to know that there are 3 LARGE Priority Mail boxes crammed with scraps that need a home. Comment on Indigo Crossing, or big AQS Quilt Shows, or anything at all before midnight Sunday August 26th, and it could be yours.
