fabric for addicts


fabric for addicts

Well, friends, I'm glad I'm not participating in a certain challenge (though I could probably really benefit). I was in a fabric store on Monday ($5 grab bags!!!), bought some delicious fabrics online on Tuesday, and ended up at JoAnne's again on Friday with my new friend Lary. She's pregnant and I seized the opportunity to have someone to quilt for immediately (cause I'm giving that way) and offered to make her baby a blankie.

Irritatingly, she's not finding out if she's having a boy or a girl, so unisex was the order of the day when we chose fabrics. We settled on a vintage Americana theme, and I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THESE FABRICS! If only I didn't have to focus on finding a job and do silly things like "grocery shopping" and "cooking dinner"...

Anyways, as soon as there's a break in the depressing job search routine, I'll be quilting.

Out of all of them I love the one with the stars on it and the stripes. But they all will make a beautiful blanket together. I need to really get my material to my godmother. You keep reminding me when I read this and I just havent gotten it boxed up for her to make the girls there new quilts.

The reds and blues will look great together.

Good luck with the job hunt.
