Zig-zag wip and present from Karen!

Karen sent me this lovely package! Look how pretty everything is wrapped. Karen sent me so many wonderful things. There are lots of different fabric-scraps, a bookmark-kit, a sheet to print my own pictures on fabric (YAY! Thank you!!), and a huge piece of the blue fabric with sun and shooting stars
Thank you so much Karen! I love it all!

I finished my paper this morning, Charles is turning it into a pdf for me, so I can send it to my professor tonight :-)
So....what to do? I probably should go buy the books I need for my next class. It starts monday, and I need to read 180 pages before then!

But I really miss my sewing machine, so I made some more flying geese, and decided I want to make a zig-zag quilt. It would probably be a lot easier making a zig-zag quilt from half-square triangles. LOL! That'll be next time!
I like these dots. I was afraid it was way too pale with all the white and the soft colors, but I quite like it. I think I have just been working on Charles' quilt for too long. I need to finish that!

Love Karen's packaging too! Lucky you! I love your dotty zigzag and Yes, I would think that HST's would be easier than flying geese but it looks great~!

it's fun to watch you turn little pieces into beautiful projects. i have had mixed results with fabric paper. i think it is the combination of paper, ink & copier. i was tricked by a comment into thinking your dots were going to be trees. the zig-zag works with the dots. when you stop by you'll see that i left you a little something.

Hi Tine-
I was just wondering with all the classes you're taking what your ultimate goal is? Just curious...:)

What a nice package from your friend-I always love getting mail!

Congrats on getting your paper finished. Nicely done! And good luck with the reading - I hope it is a really interesting book, otherwise 180 pages will seem like too much. I like your zig-zag quilt - such pretty colors.
