    I think this is kinda fun. Read the words, but set them to the tune of "My Favorite Things" (from the Sound of Music).

    It's from Avlyn's up-and-coming "Fixit" group. Coordinates are a tool toss, nuts-and-bolts, three colors of pegboard, two wooden flooring, and a stripe that includes all the motifs. If anyone would like me to post those pictures, too, just let me know.

    I don't know about men, Sharon, I have all of those tools in my toolshed, but then I live on my own, and if I want something doing, I have to do it myself. I think that fabric is a great idea, but not sure I would want it in a quilt for myself though.

    How cute! I think my DH would love a wall hanging or possibly a throw made from this fabric. The items on the fabric are most definitely among his favorite things. :-)

    I would imagine that at some point Avlyn will make a project sheet available for this group.

    Avlyn says that the Fixit group should be coming out in January or February. I'd bet on February. It's rare indeed for a group to be early!

    So... not in time for Christmas 2009!
