The Possibilities are Endless


Yesterday I went fabric shopping. My friends and I are going to do a quilt block swap using any 12 inch star block pattern and Prarie Paisley fabric. I love this line because it can be patriotic, but doesn't have to be. Could just be a red, white and blue quilt. I haven't decided which block I'm going to do. We are in the process of selling our house and I don't want to be in the middle of a complicated block when we are packing to go. We had an offer this week, but the people ended up backing out. Anyway, I digress...

After I go fabric shopping I love to lay all my fabric out and imagine the possibilities. I love that just a flat, square of fabric has so much potential. I love to imagine all the color combinations I can put together. I like to feel the fabric. My husband teases me sometimes because I like to just "hang out with my fabric."

I also bought my first jelly roll yesterday I bought
Dandilion Girl. As I said before, I'm planning on making Jelly Stars with it.

Well, if I want to get any sewing in today I need to gets started on my house and yard. I need to plant flowers in hopes of luring in potential buyers. Hopefully it has snowed for the last time this spring and my flowers won't freeze.

Just found your blog through a comment you left on Freda's Hive. I'm a fairly new blogger too. I'll be visiting often. May I add you to my blog roll?

Oh, this looks like a very pretty blog. Thank you for visiting mine, so that I could find you. I'll be back to see how you're coming on your block swap. And good luck with the house! Flowers really do add a lot.
