I left the house this morning with my daughter to knock out a couple of merchandising projects and then headed up to Frederick to get my entry in for one of the new Bernina's or a Janome at my Bernina dealer's Grand Reopening event. Of course, while there I HAD to buy fabric.
Just a little stack of oriental fabrics with metallic accents. Zoom in on that photo....the second one from the bottom was the catalyst for this impulse purchase that I plan to turn into:
And then I neatly tucked them away in one of my neat new boxes with the magnetic flap lids.
My mobile quilt shop (UPS) also paid a visit and left a little surprise while I was out
Yep, we filled in the Petite Ecole collection we started last week.
That left one big, sad box all empty
I'm hoping that I am able to empty these boxes shortly...okay, well, AFTER I use the indigo.....and the Day of the Dead fabrics.....and the dog quilt......and the Gee's Bend.....Dear Jane...Smith Street Designs....1930s.....oh my.....I see I am a hairs breadth from S.S.O.C.-dom (Stash Spiraling Outta Control).
Well, I've located a box to house Fiesta...
Darn, not exactly long enough for the bolt, but it'll be big enough for those 18-1/2" blocks, and it's a recycled box, which is also good, and it just seems to be a perfect depository for a quilt named Fiesta:
And to think that for a minute there I was going to be all OCD and cover it over with something.
Well, it's time to end this post, check out a few of yours and see if I can manage to sandwich the Checkerboard Hearts before I go to bed. Either that, or I can give some thought to making a Valentine purse
Leapin' Lizards.....how many things can I find to do to avoid starting Fiesta/finishing Checkerboard Hearts?
