Nifty!

Finally! Nifty is here in NYC! WAHOOO!!
I can show you the swap piece I did for her.... We swapped an inspiration piece of fabric.
Will show mine later...
She sent me the inner floral piece with the scrolls cut off... so I took that as a place to 
applique the continuation of the pattern, add some color, machine and hand quilting, 
and I can happily say, I am thrilled she will go home with this. It was so fun to work on it for her...
The loft looks like a sweat shop...  tables, and chairs, and sewing machines are dribbling in...
Good Lordy, we are going to make some fabric fly!
See!  Nifty is already sorted out enough fabric for a few quilts! Talk about a kid in a candy store!
(Hey Bonnie, I think she is having a good time) LOL!

Everyone else arrives tomorrow.... How will I ever sleep tonight...

Sweet sewing dreams.
