My view when I got up this morning. Beautiful sunrise.
Morning coffee in hand, headed to sewing room.
First off let me say, I LOVE FABRIC. I like to touch it, feel it, look at it, drool over it. There’s nothing I don’t like about fabric except maybe when it bleeds when washed. I have an impressive stash that I have accumulated over the years and am seriously attempting to use it up. You would think that when I needed a certain color I could just browse through the stash and voila there it is. Yet there I was faced with the dillema of not having just the right color and scale of print for my princess quilt. Which in turn meant a trip to the fabric store. I had to go anyway because I messed up my cutting on the Saturday Sampler 2016. But never would I have thought I had to go because I did not have just what I needed in my stash. I guess it means I am using up my stash. That’s a good thing. So off I went to the fabric store and got everything I needed or close enough. I had a picture in my head of just what I wanted but I guess they haven’t designed that fabric yet. So I improvised. But in the process of shopping for just that right fabric I discovered many beautiful fabrics and it was very difficult to leave them in the store. I had to remind myself we are finishing UFO’s and trying to utilize what is in the stash. Most times I’m successful, most times. Today was one of those.
I got my Saturday Sampler 2016 piece of fabric and pieced the block together last night.
I think it’s going to be lovely, vibrant quilt and am looking forward to it’s completion.
Plan for today is piece Story Tellers BOM and prep the castle block for the Princess quilt.
Shout out to my sister, Melynda, it’s her birthday today. I am sooo glad you were born! We are twins now until my birthday in January. Yep, we were born in the same year. My first Christmas I got my very own live baby doll.!
Love your Sissy.
Happy Stitches Everyone!
