Well, once again, my quilting ADD took over. Worked on a multitude of projects instead of spending all my time on my one monthly project. I did spend a little time on it, but I made the mistake of doing a little shopping, which makes my mind wander to other projects.
I bought some lovely fabric (you can never have enough). So, I find the cutest dog fabric on the clearance rack. As the crazy dog lady, it was my duty to purchase some. Then I found some Pepsi fabric. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it (I will get to that later). Then, I found some giraffe fabric. Since my daughter and I (and a lot of other crazy people) have been watching/waiting for April the giraffe to have her baby. I will likely make some sort of Giraffe applique and save it for my daughter.
So, about that Pepsi fabric. I have to admit, my one vice is Diet Pepsi. I am also a quilter that takes her handwork projects (Hospital Hexies) in a non-quilters bag. So, I decided that I would make a bag to carry my projects around when I am working mobile. I mean I am a quilter after all, so I think it is appropriate that I have a quilted bag. Duh. So, I will use that Pepsi fabric to make a bag. I am sort of winging it (no pattern). But, it will be quilted. And yes, I have already started it. I should have been working on my “One Monthly Goal” project.
I almost forgot about the Fruit Loop Fabric. It was just plain old cute. I also have a Jar UFO that needs finished and a jar of fruit loops sounded awesome.
In other news, one of my fellow bloggers, Mary Puckett at Zippy Quilts, has included me in the “One Lovely Blog Award” chain. As I discovered a few years ago, this isn’t a contest, it is a way for bloggers to promote each other, and I’m all about that.
