Having fun -

As part of the prep for my Confetti Naturescape -

I chose a beautiful batik for the backing -

Some polyester thread to match -

And some batting -

Then I made a quick detour to make a small gift for a last-minute birthday party -

I didn't have a whole lot of notice -

Found out Friday afternoon that it was going to be on Saturday afternoon -

But that was OK - I had just the thing - and it was pretty quick to make -


Friday afternoon/evening -

I made the birthday girl A Round Tuit -

And I had some clock fabric for the back - which was perfect -

Then I added a ribbon - so she could hang it on a doorknob if she wanted to -

On the card I wrote the story of the Round Tuit -

This is a round tuit. Guard it with your life.

Tuits are hard to come by - especially the round ones.

For years you've heard people say,

I'll do this when I get around tuit.

So now that you have one,

you can accomplish all those thing you put aside

until you got a round tuit.


Saturday afternoon was the party - and it was FUN!! -

She got a kick out of her Round Tuit - and it made her smile -

Which is why I made it - so mission accomplished - ;))


Sunday - I played - making more confetti -

I LOVE it!! - It's like - NOTHING is TOO small - LOL - ;))

On this one I cut off the little string - two texture effects in one little piece -
And ran the rest of it through the die -

Then I ran this scrap through the die -
With the cutting mat on top -

For even more confetti - ;))

This is so much FUN -

I might be having as much FUN prepping for this -

As I think I'll have actually MAKING it - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I love the Round Tuit! Very cute idea.

Be careful when using the die cutter.....I cut through one of the guard pieces by not having fabric covering the entire die section. The quilt shop that I purchased it from said that they had never seen that happen....but I had to replace the guard so that I did not harm the cylinder.

Have fun with your confetti making.

The TUIT was a fabulous idea. Made me smile.

I have started saving scraps - even the tiny ones to try something like the naturescape. I will just have to wing it since the book is out of print.
