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.
