I just know there's a "gitalong" gear somewhere in my brain, so I'm going digging. The first thing you do when you're in the doldrums is buy fabric, right? So thanks to e-bay I got a cool set of CW FQs, lights only. I have a terrrible time buying lights, I always want the LOUD stuff. These are so pretty, shirting prints, and they'll go with a lot of stuff. The blue stripe is going to be the cover of a doll bed mattress, I think. It looks like ticking. Now, the next picture is a test.This is the sum total of my work for August - I think. Or pretty nearly, anyway. I'm not a real big chocolate eater, but occasionally I get cravings. This was going to be the guiltless Chocolate Cuddle:
Here comes the test part. See anything wrong with that? OK, aside from the seams that don't quite match........anything else?
I also got Judys book, finally. I had pre-ordered it in May, then got an e-mail from Amazon saying it wouldn't be released till October, then read on someone else blog that they had theirs, from Amazon. HUH??? I checked it out, and sure enough, mine came very shortly. And it's terrific!! I love 9-patch designs, but I would have bought it for the border designs alone -- awesome. Hey Judy -- your next book should be border designs!
Finally, I got this goody box in the mail Tuesday from my pincushion swap partner -- two cute pincushions and a cool tea towel. I love the little mushroom house -- too cute!
Now if I can't use all this to get motivated, I'll have to start dragging out the stash and re-folding all of it and making it all neat.
Or maybe have a margarita and a nap, LOL!
