(1) complete agreement
(2) feeling groovy
(3) going through your pocket book
Sometimes my grandmother would be going through her pocketbook, digging and digging, and I'd say "what are you looking for, Mama Brown?" and she'd say, "Nothin, just going through my pocketbook." So now I know it probably made her happy!
I was making border decisions for the Sue's Seeing Stars quilt and took LizA's advice over at Lizquilt - Scrap Basket and looked at my reds. Yellows just weren't coming together for that quilt!
That store used to have a GREAT quilting fabric section, and there was this GREAT remnant table where you could find awesome deals. I worked about a half mile from the store, so they'd see a lot of me on my lunch break.
Somehow I didn't like the way it looked with the quilt so I rejected it. It's directional anyway, who wants to fool with that.
Selfie - I need to learn how to hold the camera!
This piece would have been perfect but I didn't have enough of it, darn! I bought it on my Lancaster trip last October, and because I've been on a fabric buying diet I only bought a small amount - it was just "this" much too small, shoot!
This next piece was downright yucky, there's no other word for it!
Here's the piece I decided on:
Looks pretty good I think - I'm a pokey-dot nut anyway! I'll have just enough to make 3" borders for the sides and 6" for top and bottom. The quilt is square right now, I want to make it oblong and borders are the perfect place to make that happen.
Well, I'm not feeling 100% today I may just laze around for a bit before I get back to the quilt. I think I ate too much salty stuff the last couple days and it's telling on me, whoa! Have a great day, do something creative, enjoy the great weather - sew forth and sew on!
