I'm excited to share the new supplies I received from Island Batik to complete the next 6 months of Ambassador Challenges. Watch the video below to see the live taped unboxing. Additional photos follow. An additional box is coming soon, with 4 yards each of White, Grey and Black solids, plus some Stash Builder rolls and maybe more surprises. The first boxes weighed over 30 lbs. Island Batik is so generous!
What I didn't realize during the video was that you would be able to see my 1 1/2 year old puppy Heather chasing butterflies in the background, or the jingle and occasional appearance of my son's Rottweiler, Freya next to me. The quilt behind me is my new pattern, Framed, featuring Lavender Fields. Pattern will be available soon, in my Etsy store and some shops. It uses a 2 1/2" strip pack, plus a little yardage. It was a really sunny, hot day, and I couldn't open my eyes without my sunglasses, so just enjoy the fun take on doing something outdoors with 2 dogs, birds, crickets and cicadas, lawn mowers and occasional airplanes.

I added a new Schmetz Chrome size 12 needle to my Janome 9450, and wound about 5 bobbins with Aurifil 50wt, because I use a large cone, just for piecing. I also used my Prairie Spirit Alpaca pressing mat to help get the units flat. These 3 products are always in use here. They make my pieces accurate, which leads to a better top. But first, the oops. Lost at bobbin chicken when adding the borders. 3 more stitches would have been nice, but I had more bobbins wound, so no time lost. Don't worry, I cleaned out the bobbin case after the next bobbin change.
