    so ... i'm sitting around the other day waiting for the plumber. i just knew it was going to cost me a fortune to have my water heater fixed. (the lemons) i'm missing almost a whole day of work (the lemonade :lol: ).

    i was either bored or frustrated by my UFOs (lemons) and i have a huge stash calling to me (the lemonade).

    so i made this.

    a more accurate look at the colors

    I love those colors!! I got them at Walmart and did a quilt block when they used to have their contests for a quilt block. They quit doing it about 3 yrs ago and not every store did it. I found out about it when I was in Florida visiting my sister and then came home to MD and inquired at the stores around here. I won the contest too!! Now what I am doing is making a baby quilt out of the block that I designed. Yep, it is another UFO that I want to get done.

    I didn't realize it til just now but I used some of that same purple fabric in my DGD's quilt! When I bought that I didn't see the other colors there, but I bet they were there, I just had purple on the brain that day.

    :D What a riot!! Gorgeous!! It's a wake 'em up kind of quilt!

    Would the plumber take in in barter?

    I've been meaning to ask my farrier if he could use a quilt as a gift for his wife in exchange for hoof trims.... :roll:

    thanks for the compliments. :P

    in addition to the colors in the quilt, i have that fabric in two shades of blue. i think i have at least one yard left of each color if anybody wants to buy or swap for it.
