Oh, what a week! My AccuQuilt GO! arrived Monday and I have been cutting strips daily. It's SO easy to use. I've been going though some larger 30s scraps from my DJ blocks and making them into various lengths of 2.5" strips for Stefanie Roman's cards----oh, yes, I'm still happily churning those out regularly.

The latest version mailed out this week.

In other news, my SEW LA fabric and Sew Retro book arrived yesterday afternoon. I couldn't wait to dig in and have already made 4 headbands from the book in just about no time. No doubt I'll add other projects to my wardrobe before long. They're super cute, EASY and make me want an entire collection for daily wear. I'm not alone...gift requests are coming in already. 

While I haven't had the time to read the book cover to cover yet, I will definitely do so this weekend and get back with you all.

Inspired by my recent good luck, I've decided to start a tutorial page for the blog. Please bear with me over the next couple of weeks as it is a work in progress.

You can take a closer look at the fabric fabulousness from SEW LA below. All my pictures should enlarge if you click on them...at least, that's the plan. Please let me know if you ever have difficulty viewing anything.

Happy Retro Sewing!!
