Was it a small explosion? Stripin' all over the place. Whoops, I meant strips all over the place! LOL Hope there are some that you can use. If not pass them on. When I got back from the PO I discovered the note I had written to you. That's what happens when you get in a hurry! Can't wait to see your quilt top. If I didn't have half a dozen WIP (works in progress) I would be seriously tempted to do this one too. But I must finish up first what I have going on first! Hope you enjoy them.

Using just my stash I started my first log cabin quilt. It will be for DH as a Christmas present now to hide it from him. Its a little distinctive as its his favorite football team fabric. Hard to hide that!yesterday he came up early and I sat on the two blocks to hide them hehehehe

R U KIDDING ME?! You totally made my day (and week - heck, the whole month). My jaw dropped when I saw that package and you rolled them all up. I was downright giddy! They fit PERFECTLY with my stash. Anything I don't use goes in the scrap bag for my friend Joann. I will see her in November at a retreat. She does leaders and enders projects and loves to get other people's scrap bits. She'll be tickled pink. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!

My life is still crazy busy but so glad to see everyone with bumps and bruises but climbing back on the wagon. As this year winds down, I keep making the vow that no more fabric for me in the coming year. I need to finish UFO's, as all of you do and use some of what I have before buying more.
An update on Linda (Brat). http://www.quiltingboard.com/persona...t-t270993.html
See there might be a new member or two and folks here are sharing their largess with others in need. That tickles my heart. Martina, you have a keeper of a hubby that is for sure. This is short but trying to keep a little pinky finger on the QB. Maybe in a month, things will slow down and I can read and post more. Hang on everyone..and stay on the wagon. Also...keep away from those quilting bargains...nah...I can't say that. Bargains are good!

I fell off the wagon a little bit yesterday. Went to a thrift store and bought beads, a strip of faux fur, and 3 bags of cut up fabric scraps for $1 a bag.

I'm amazed at how long it's been since I bought any fabric. The last fabric I bought was with a gift certificate I won at the fair for my wall hanging, Cherry Blossoms. That was over a year ago. I've moved since then. It was just down the hall but I went from 1 bedroom to 2 and I have a sewing room back. I've actually given away tons of stuff out of my sewing room. I went thru my fabric with a plan in mind and if a fabric didn't fit in somehow I either sold it gave it away. I pared it down to what I really am likely to use. I still have plenty mind you.
