Vacation Time!

I was hoping to have one more post before we left for vacation, but between cleaning and packing I didn't have enough time to finish my 9 patch baby quilt! So, I'll finish when I get back.

I don't want to leave you with nothing (I'd feel like such a bad blogger!), so check out these links:

Here's a tutorial on how to knit a bag using plastic bags (the tutorial uses Target bags and the red and white is SO cute!).

This one sounds like a really fun thing to do: a quilt block dash. It's like a Fab Shop Hop, only with quilt blocks. I heard about this from Eleanor Burns' website and wanted to join in, but my vacation is calling!

Speaking of Eleanor Burns, you can download all kinds of free quilt block patterns from her site. I like the Rocky Mountain block. Scroll down a little on the page and you'll see all her previous free downloads.

And because I'm a Husqvarna Viking kind of gal, here's a link to all their free projects. If you look on the left hand side of the sewing project page, you'll see other links to great information under the heading "Education". There are great tips and hints, help for Viking Diamond owners, and if you like the show America Sews with Sue Hausman, click on the America Sews link and it will take you to her page where you can spend hours learning new things. Great stuff.

Well, my vacation is calling my name, so I'm off. I'll see you when I get back!
