So much to tell!!

I'll try to be brief.

Jake and Ella got their swap partners for the Great Kids Mail Swap.
They are very excited and have written / drawn their letters already.
Here they are ready to be stamped and sent.

Thursday night at Perle 8's was very fun. Lots of lovely crafters were there, and I got to finish my mystery quilt.

It was inspired by this piece created by the fabulous Malka Dubrawsky.

It will be used as a Matzah cover for our family seder this Passover.

Here is the back with strips of Velcro up each side. (A bit tricky to see the white on white)

And here it is folded (and held together by the Velcro strips), ready to receive the 3 matzahs for the traditional meal.

Then ........

All day yesterday and today, I attended a machine quilting course at Amitie, run by the fabulous Deborah Louie. I learned SOOOOOOO much!!!

What an amazing teacher!!

What an incredibly talented quilter! (Deb, not me, that is)

I have lots of practicing to do.

But first, I'll be busy with other tasks this evening.

The tooth fairy is coming to our house for the first time tonight.

There is much excitement!!

I wonder what she will bring.

Sweet dreams and happy stitching.

Andi :-)

Your quilting looks great.
We are expecting the tooth fairy's first visit here too shortly. How exciting. Every time we see a toadstool he checks to see if its the one she lives under.
