If my HSTs are big enough I do that!  That is why one of these days I will need to do scrap top using them!

also, a quilter friend was going to throw away a big baggy of left over triangles, all in pretty batiks!  I sewed them into HSTs as my leader/ Enders.  I just about have them squared up.  Those will be a quilt one day.

(or will go to someone who wants to play!)

Lynne, sending you email now.

Will you send me Suze’s address? I can’t find my retreat paper from a few years ago. Thanks

Judy I broke my wrist my right one December the 7th and it is quite painful I was at the doctor Wednesday and they said I have a couple more months to go

I'm so sorry you still have to take so much more time to get out of the discomfort and pain and heal so you can get back to sewing.

It will be fun to open the mail. 

It sure will be!  I can just hear Suze squeel at all the pretties as she begins to see the pile grow!!

I have a suggestion for everyone ..... When you are sewing the big snowball corner (the first step), if you sew *another* line 1/2" away (towards the corner), you can cut between the two sewing lines and give Suze a bonus HST. 

That's a great idea IF she wants to play with all those extra HSTs.  I usually cut them and sew them up when I get a huge pile of them and sometimes they don't feed nice and cleanly.  I think I'll begin doing this for all the HSTs I make where the corner is cut off like this.  They'll be done and so much more neatly.  Thanks for the excellent hint!  

I'll save mine and if she does, in fact want them I'll pop them in also with blocks I do.  I guess I'd better get to my pretty florals to choose just the right ones!!

Maybe we should use those for a future retreat project and/or S&T.
