Exclamation Day!!!!!'s been a great day! First of all I finished a few things today one being this mini made out of the last scraps of Kaffe...'s wonky on purpose and I think it looks like an exclamation point so that's what I am going to call it. I think I want to give it to Maria's friend Beth...don't know why....I just think of Beth when I see it. Do you want it Beth?:)
Second....PIPS are in the the store!! We received a shipment of Sherbet Pips jelly rolls and charm packs by Aneela Hoey. This is Aneela's first fabric line and from all the buzz online I don't think it will be her last!:) Bolts won't come in until next month. I guess Moda just wants to get us excited so that's why we have to wait....teases! Decisions, decisions! lovely online pals over at Mini QT received their minis today so I can reveal them to you all. This "Dotty " themed mini went to Laney....she's new in the swapping game and I was tickled to be her partner this round! I think we are all ready to see some fireflies!:)
The other mini I had to make this round was 3D for my bud Amy. The felt birds hang off of the jinglebell apples which are also tumbling out of the basket while bead butterflies flit over beaded flowers. These were so much fun to make....thanks ladies for being such great partners.

Lastly, it was a great soft mail day pal Mandy sent me an extra 3.5" block for this round of bitty blocks....she said she was going to scrap it but remembered our sweetie Slate and thought maybe I could find a use for it.....You betcha Mandy!! I added some Max & Whiskers border and a leftover dotty star block on the back, ribbon drawstring and now I have a bag for the nano Don gave me for Christmas!:)
Like I said....Exclamation Day!!!


  1. You have Pips! Lucky you!!! I think I am holding out for a little bit of yardage because there are a couple of prints that I hate to see chopped randomly, you know?
    I love, love, love my mini and I will post about it today once I get a proper pic with the birds!

  2. Sherbert Pips, squeee!! I lubs it lots.

    Your minis are amazing, chick! I totally couldn't pick a favourite.

  3. That is a smart looking quilt. I like the colors a lot they remind me of a sunset. Of course I couldn't object to owning a quilt like that. haha

  4. Well then it's yours Beth!!

  5. Wow, I'm friends with the right people. Thanks!

  6. lol, if Beth didn't like it, I would. 8-) exclamation is a great name for it.
