(1) a sale
(2) finding new ideas
(3) putting your feet up
I was watching the weather yesterday morning and just happened to catch the lady in the background ... See the "quilt" she's sitting in front of??
Not really a quilt, on closer inspection I discovered it's an orange board with a lot of photos attached. Sure looked like a quilt though!
Sometimes I have to just sit back and laugh at myself!
Here's another heehee - I bought a new Spring-y wreath for my front door yesterday from Michael's. Wasn't 100% satisfied with it, but I could live it with, especially at 40% off. Today I looked at it hanging there and decided ... well maybe I could find something better at A.C. Moore, since I was going out that way anyway.
Didn't see anything I liked on display at A.C. Moore, so the floral designer spent about 20 minutes with me, pulling together just the right flowers so I could make one myself.
When I got back home and looked at the one I'd left hanging on the door I said to myself "you know, that wreath is right cute!"
So I had to make a decision:
... or make it myself??
I'll take door #1 please!!
Meanwhile, back in the sewing room, still putting the finishing touches on the units I need to make in order to finish the Scrap Crystals UFO...
A bit of trimming was in order, but I didn't really mind that.
My sewing time today will be dedicated to finishing up as many of the sub-units as I can, making sure the blocks are mixed, old with new, to get a good variety in the fabrics.
Because I had to go out I've already fotted away a good part of the day, so we'll see what I can get accomplished. Sew forth and sew on...
