A fun day and a present
When my friend Diane saw my Dutch Wax batiks on my blog she emailed me and said she had some for me. Since the QOV sew-in was in the town she lives in, I stopped by her house. Here are the blue Dutch prints she had.
They were all different than the ones I had. At first I said I had the hummingbird print but then I realized I have it in black, not blue.
This fish print was one I hadn't seen. It doesn't say Dutch Wax but is like them.
You can see this is the fish morphing into birds, an Escher design. I had never seen this one before.
There were some batiks in the bag too. I only have one of these in my own collection.
There were lots of other blue prints in the bag too. I have found the value of putting some blue in most quilts, even if it is only a little bit. I tend to like the warm colors best blue helps them glow. Thanks, Diane for this wonderful gift!!
The QOV sew-in was a lot of fun. Would you believe my camera said "change batteries" when I tried to turn it on? I didn't have any batteries with me so I'll send you to the blog for this group. Caron has posted pictures from yesterday already.
A couple people asked for my fudge recipe. I use the recipe that used to be on this brand of marshmallow creme. They have changed the recipe a little over the years. When I was a teenager I always made the Betty Crocker recipe from scratch.
When the marshmallow creme recipes became popular I switched over to it. Even though some people call this cheating, I can give you a long list of people who love my fudge.
My son hasn't had time to put the new part in my old desktop computer so I still can't access my contacts list that is in it. J-MT and Deanna (Yorkville), I need you to email me so I can get your addresses.
