Fat Quarters and Beyond

I'm slipping quickly, and I'm almost gone. I've made my way back into the quilt shop. Yes, back. I quilted in a former life.

It's a dangerous place ... kind of like the first time you go from the corner craft store to a nice yarn shop. Your world starts spinning with all the projects, the beautiful things, the gadgets.

I found my way back to the sewing machine innocently enough with Halloween costumes. Mouse and Rocket Boy were hysterical with excitement over their, um, mouse and rocket costumes. And, to tell you the truth, it was pretty easy.





So, I whipped up a few quick pillows as Christmas gifts.




Next, it was an apron from my niece. And, another one on the way for Mouse.



Now I'm buying fabric with no real project in mind -- a spattering of ideas, but no real direction.
But, it's so pretty, isn't it? I. Just. Can't. Help. Myself.

I'm so glad I don't sew - I can't afford a yarn stash AND a fabric stash!

Love the pillow.

See, now, I was going to say I wish I could sew! I want a fabric stash!

It's all good. Don't fight it. Find your bliss and go with it. Knitting, sewing, underwater basket weaving...

I think it's just your evil plan to make us all want fabric stashes, too. ;)

I love aprons. I might try to convince/cajole/beg my MIL to make me an apron. I have a canvas one, but I want pretty ones too!
