A box full of Island batik fabric, charm squares, 5″ rolls, and yardage along with Aurifil thread and Superior Masterpiece and Fantastico thread arrived from California.

My heart was pounding as I caressed these pieces of precious cloth. Now the challenges begin. I will blog every month on whatever I decide to design. I look forward to hearing from you! Let me know if you like the projects and especially if you try them yourself.

With the Valentine bunch, I made two mug rugs.  I used the same pattern which I used Kaffe Fassett fabrics and posted earlier.  It is amazing to me how exciting this Valentine bunch is, once stitched together.  I played a bit more with the design of the mug rug.  It’s so much fun to be spontaneous.  I hope you like them.

There are 35 Ambassadors for Island Batik this year.  Below is a list of all the people joining in on this adventure.  I encourage you to check out what they are designing from supplies in their boxes.  We all don’t have the same fabric, but we are given the same prompt.  I just love this!  Even if we were given the same fabric, I know that our projects would be as individual as each of us.  I’m learning a little bit about each Ambassador.  I have a lot in common with some.  I do hope to meet them sometime. I think it’s giving me a great excuse to travel a bit more.
