Kai no kuchi!!!

photo by pearl incig
I think we need to start a kai no kuchi box phenomenom!! Flossieblossoms posted a link to these little cuties in the scrappy mugrug swap group. Pop on over and check out Idle hands empty brains cute blog and especially this tute. And here is an etsy shop that sells them, pearlsquitledcrafts. Are these not stinkin' cute???

You could use them for so many wee things, thimbles, change, a dinky sewing kit....leave some other ideas here...

red and aqua quilt bee

above are three layouts for my red and aqua bee quilt. the first one has a red on white dot alternating with a white on red dot, and the second one has a white dot on red alternating with a white dot on aqua, and the third one has a red dot on white in every block. which is your favorite? someone mentioned that the first one has a secondary pattern happening with the red also....i dont know if i like that it isnt symmetrical. i guess i could add another row to two sides to make it more symmetrical. what do you think?
