11-11-11 excitement builds
It's being noted in the media, although I'm not sure they are on to our challenge yet......
MSNBC is reporting the Corduroy Appreciation Day activities.
The Guardian notes 11-11-11 is a palindrome, something we watch for eagerly at basketball games (look! 24-42, palindrome!! high five!!).
To date, they have not reported on our nationwide preparations. Many stitchers are slicing apart strings of the nappy fabric to reassemble them into quilts for ringleader LeeAnn to display on the big day.
I'm also noting quilts with corduroy in them. I stumbled onto the one above the other day. The description read: The fabrics are both cottons and wool, including corduroy, houndstooth, and plaid.
Note: Thanks to Sheryl for sending me the MSNBC news......

it's a fun idea! I'd join in but alas, no corduroy, although I've sewn with plenty of it in the past.ReplyDelete
