Sunday Squirrels - 4/28/13


Told you on Friday that I saw some new “Squirrels” -

BIG ones - ;))

And these BIG guys have been calling my name - ;))

Squirrel #1 - A 9-Patch Experiment -



Squirrel #2 - A book -
Quilts to Warm Today’s Home -
By Nancy Rink -
(c) 2012 - Leisure Arts, Inc.


THIS Squirrel has the border -

That I want for my Floral Applique -

I had the idea a long time ago -

But she has the “How-To” - YAY!!

Gotta dig that one out again -

And change out the corners -

BOB doesn’t DO mitered corners - ;))


Squirrel #3 - Another book
Sliver Quits -
By Lisa O’Neill -
(c) 2012 - C&T Publishing, Inc. -


THIS Squirrel is ingenious! -

Gotta make one of these - ;))


Squirrel #4 - These guys -


Can you tell what these are?

Yeah - they’re new dies -
But which ones?
Who knows?

Some marketing genius decided -
That I didn’t need to see NAME of the die -
Or a picture of it -
On the packaging -

Unlike this one -
This package tells me -
EXACTLY what it is -
Half-square - 2” finished triangles
Cuts 12 shapes -
Use with a 10” x 10” cutting mat -


Silly me to expect the same information -
On these new ones -

He -
BOB knows that it wasn’t a SHE - ;))
Probably figured -
That I could tell which ones they are -
By simply reading the labels -

OK -

If I can FIND the labels - ;))

Oh - here they are! -

One is on the side -
One is on the end -
That’s consistent, huh? -


How convenient! -

Yeah, RIGHT!! - ;))

Anyway -

I’ll put my own label on the dang things -
Thankyouverymuch -

And I’ll show you them later -
When I actually USE them - ;))

But right now it’s time for some -

Eenie - meenie - miney - moe - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

    1. BOB has a hard enough time wrestling with a large top and a long border without having to fold the dang thing diagonally and then trying to sew up to a point 1/4" away from the corner - so no thanks - BOB will do horizontal borders - and maybe add a corner square - if she wants to make it fancy - ;))

  2. I like all my labels to show when things are put away ... something like library books, sorted by category with labels visible. Who wants to dig through a whole pile? Not me!

    1. Like minds think alike, Julie - I store my dies in a plastic tub - on their sides - with the label showing - like library books - ;)) But sometimes I have more than one die of the same size out on my cutting table - and a picture of the die or the name printed on the package would be more helpful in identifying which one is which than a tiny label on the side - so I'll just have to make my own - ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
