um...i need to start saving up...again
I'm a fabric junkie....but i actually had an idea for an appliqued quilt using my son's old plaid shirts and this kind of truck. Actually I was thinking a 1970 Ford Pickup truck. But I would settle for this. It's called Pooches and Pickups by Laurie Wisbrun and it comes out at the end of the month. Seriously....Seriously cute.
4 patch posey blocks. I had to hit the Daffodil Dash and buy some fabric to make a quilt. I love bright prints with black so I was psyched to find this cute print from Alexander Henry Fabrics. Plus I had to buy replacement blades and new scissors.
I've been teaching myself to crochet and have been very successful with it. I love making little flowers. I will be posting pictures of those soon. I was just thinking about how I always buy t-shirts with embroidery or little trims on them. Anyway I know a lot knitters and a lot of people who love to knit. Well I bought the needles and tried...I'm a pro at casting on...i can't knit to save my life however. I will try again...and again...but crochet is so much more relaxing and FASTER. In my opinion.
Mother Earth News. I told him I needed chickens. I just found out this week that we could have them in our city limits. I'm thinking if I gave some eggs to the neighbors they would be okay with some chickens. I really was born in the wrong era.
And last week I made 8 pairs of jams for my boys.
This is the only picture i got of my favorite ones made out of a cute cute Hawaiian fabric. Maxine's fabric has been an awesome blessing. I'm amazed at all the fabric I have. I need to find a friend that has NO fabric and give them some of mine though.
