Miss Penny is taking me shopping at Whittle's today. Really excited!
This morning after a doctor appointment (me), Miss Penny (Country1) is taking me to Whittle's Fabric store. To those of you not familiar with Whittle's , it's a fair sized steel building, well lit and with places for husbands and boyfriends to set while their sig others spend money on the biggest selection of fabric for miles around at the best prices I've ever seen. I'll be controlling myself though, and buying only material and thread only enough for my first quilt. I've decided a 9 patch with borders in a twin size would be a good starting point. It shall be a user quilt, not one to set folded and unused. When someone is in the recliner dozing, it shall cover them fully. Now at 6 feet 4 inches tall and 300 plus pounds, it takes more than a lap quilt to cover me if I am the one dozing. None of this "choose your arms or feet to keep warm because you can't have both" stuff for me. SO excited folks. Don
