Pinwheel sampler....and the owls.

these adorable guys were delivered by my fav guy in the world....my mailman. (sorry hubby)
a big THANKS to my swap partner for potholder pass 3.


im FINALLY starting the pinwheel sampler, while most of you are finishing it. watching all the post's with the final outcomes finally got to me. one of my fav bloggers to read (you know who you are Rene at Luv2Kreate) started hers in the same line i had bought, BLUSH, and that was the final kick in the pants. I had to try.....so here we go.

on my first block, i had a fabric snaffoo because the directions on the 1st block dont tell you that you need a little more than 1 layer cake for one of the colors....so then after spending all afternoon trying to sort my fabs/colors, i had to do a little switch-a-roo. but it turned out "ok". definitely NOT my fav block...but when youve only made 1 does it have to be? LOL


here is my pile of instructions and fabrics. its very exciting to start a project like this when the outcome is so beautiful!

I cant believe how many of you have already signed up for Junes FNSI. dont you just love that extra "push" to sew. i like knowing im sewing with a great group of people at the same time.....minus the time zones, equators etc. one lady said she might sew all day.....now THATS an idea!!! (if only i didnt have to work---bummer)

I know what ill be working on that night.....pinwheels baby!

I really like your first block. I ended up not making that block for the same reason PLUS I didn't make mine in order (or I might have realized I needed to switch before it was too late).

I CAN'T wait to see all your finished pinwheels.

Wish I could join the FNSI but will still be out of town...already missing my sewing machine.
Happy sewing!
