Well, well, well, here we are again. I actually worked on two projects yesterday. Believe it or not neither of them are finished...yet... I also looked for another project online to start to take to work with me. I bet you are thinking uhhhh hello how about finishing some other projects you started and never finished. Well you see... I have to have several projects going in case I get bored with one and can leave it do something else. BUT... then when I come back to the first project I don't remember where I'm at and what I was thinking so I start something new. It's vicious cycle here in my little world. lol.
Anyway, I stayed home and did NOT go to the fabric sale at the thrift shop. Aren't you proud of me? If that weren't temptation enough, one of my Facebook friends told me that the Wal-mart in Parma (Ohio) is getting rid of their bolt fabric so they are having a 50% off sale. Then another one of my crafting buddies told me at another thrift store they had a ton of fabric in too. Seriously, it is an omen. I need to go fabric shopping!!!! ARRRGGHHH But I have so much I need to use up first. (sigh) Oh well... This is just torture sitting here thinking about it. I need my fix... LOL.
OK back to my projects. So there I sat staring at the original project I was going to do, but nothing came to me. A complete and total brain block. So I thought to myself let's quilt. Yeah that's a great idea other than I have to cut my fabric. lol. You all know me I have a very hard time cutting fabric. So I said "self let's dig into our scrap boxes and tubs and make a scrappy quilt." So I hunted through and picked out some fabric and got to cutting. I had no problem cutting them because they were well scraps. I just couldn't stop myself and cut enough for two quilts plus a little extra.
This is my blue and brown one. I still need to put a border and quilt it obviously... lol
Like I said I just kept on cutting and had enough for a second quilt top so this one is a true scrappy quilt. I used lots of colors on this one. I'm still deciding what kind of border I want to use. I'm kinda not liking the blue thrown in there, but it's too late now.
So I was a busy little bee yesterday in between running laundry and running kids here and there. For now the quilts will go on my rack in the dining room designated as unfinished corner. I really need to clean up my crafting/dining room. It is a mess. Then I'd like to redecorate my living room. I still haven't touched it since all the Christmas stuff came down. I know I know L-A-Z-Y. lol. I think I'm just going to jump straight to Spring decorating. A girl can dream right? Today we are having a heat wave here at the homestead so it feels like Spring. It is a whopping 34degrees outside. Woohoo!!!!
Have a great day everyone!
