Very Warm but Open Sat! ...

Yes, Mrs P's is open this Sat - from 10am til 1pm!  I'm hopeful this will be regular hours.  I will post if I cannot be open. 

Since it's so hot here, maybe some snowman fabric will help you cool off!  This is the Snow Happens line.  There are over 10 different bolts in stock in the line.  

To make 8 half square triangles (HST) from 10 inch squares of fabric, put 2 ten inch squares right sides together, (after marking from corner to corner, the centre of the lighter coloured square) and sew 1/4 of an inch from that mid-mark line on both sides. 

Cut through the seamed lines and also straight at 5 inches on the block, ( both across and up & down) lining up the points of the seam lines. 

Your cut lines allow 8 HST!

A lot of different layouts are available with HSTs!  Make a test block from some of your stash fabrics and experiment with making HSTs this way.  

Update on A Bargello Day...

The date that we are looking at is Monday, Sept 14th from 9/9:30 am til 2 or 3pm at Mrs Pugsley's Emporium Inc.  There is a cost for this workshop. Stay tuned for more info.  If you are interested, please email or let Mrs P's know you want to participate, as space will be limited. 

Remember the possible Bargello fabrics picture...

A table runner was made!
