I'll tell you, it's been one rough week at school--emotionally. I'm wrung out and ever so glad it's Friday.
Yesterday I came home to find a sweet soft package--and upon opening it discovered two black and whites from Marcia. Poor woman got a mishmash run down of what had happened, but I wanted her to know just how well timed her gift was. :D
Now to Mamagus... she gave me a delicious link to a fabric site and on another stressful day, I made myself happy by over filling the "free shipping if your order is over $150" lure. I just saved my cart, for I've never purchased that much before! :shock: Then, weeks later, I was drooling over it again. I mentioned to hubby that it'd be fun to hit the submit button. He said go ahead. So, I did. :wink: It came today. Another well timed package.
The flannel on the left will be for a ragged flannel for my son's girlfriend. Her favorite color is burnt orange, so this is a start. My daughter loves growing herbs and picking apples, so the right one is for her--maybe a back, maybe a top. She has the Lake one coming, so maybe a wall hanging?
These next ones are for another floral log cabin. The right one will be for the light side, the others for the floral side. I think that dark one will work--it's pretty dark.
I loved this big panel! It will be for the back of a crib quilt. I've made so many bigger tops lately, I want to focus on baby stuff for a bit. I have a friend expecting her second grandchild and needs to buy another for this one. There's a better market for this size, too.
I love this one!! I'll cut these up and figure out what blocks to add to make a wall hanging or small top. I think Mamagus did one with these...so I'll have to search for it. I like her ideas! :wink:
This is the fabric that caused the trouble in the first place! I taught my kids to read at age 3 with Dick and Jane books. All they need is one title under their belt and they are ready to move to other titles... amazing motivator to have a thick book they can read all by themselves. :wink:
This piece will help make whatever the above one turns into.
I think this is my favorite piece!! It's flannel and I can't stop looking at it. I kept adding yards to the order...and ended up with 4. Hope it's enough. :wink: I've always been a sucker for cute Teddy bears.
The only challenge now is finding time to sew. With chores, then school, then chores, then grading...I'm ready for bed. But, it's raining tonight...
