Name game progress

It has been a few days since my last post, but I haven't been idle!  In fact, Monday turned out to be quite a productive day.  I got started on my Name Game quilt for the swap Samelia's Mum is having.  I managed to get the whole thing drawn out on paper, my background all put together, and the borders started.  Tuesday, I finished all the letters for my partner's name.  I decided to paper piece the letters of her name and in the process tried out "mini" paper piecing.  As I have said before - I don't let the fact that I have absolutely no idea what I am doing stop me from doing something new, so I gave it a try and I LOVE IT!!  Since I am not done yet, and it is supposed to be a secret until my partner receives it, I can't post many pictures, just a few "teasers" really.

Does your name have an "N" in it?

Yesterday, I spent most of the day at the hospital with my niece, and today I'm taking my eldest to the dentist for a while, but hopefully I can get a few more mini blocks done for my border.  If I can get the top all pieced and ready by Tuesday, there is hope that the quilt will be done by the end of the month!

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
