BITS & PIECES — I love fabric — any kind of fabric, any SIZE of fabric. At the end of the monthly quilt guild meetings, the freebie table is cleared off and anything left used to be tossed into the trash. Once I discovered that it was all tossed, I offered to clear the table and take anything I couldn’t use to the local thrift shop. This is not a good thing for a fabric-aholic like myself. I began salvaging all of those orphan bits and pieces of quilts, wallhangings and craft projects. I did pass a good amount of things to the thrift shop, but I also kept quite a bit. I rarely have to purchase fabric these days, unless it’s something special — like the SeaHawks fabric for the grandson’s quilt (check out the quilt in progress in this first photo — he picked the gray and green fabrics to go with the primary SeaHawk fabric. And, he picked out the pattern. Thankfully, it’s an easy pattern. But it doesn’t need any of my assorted squares and strips.
Not everything is cut into nice neat sized pieces — some fabrics wind up in my color-sorted bins.
I truly need to get a life — or get to sewing like a mad woman! I think I’d rather sew. It’s a drizzle-drazzle day today so I think I’ll finish this post for Day 3, get my second cup of coffee and work on my grandson’s quilt. I’m also going to do my new exercises. Another goal that I’ve set for myself (other than finishing my grandson’s quilt and writing every day this month) is to get my right arm back to its full range of motion. It’s going to be costly in pain, but I need to do it.
I’m through ranting for now — be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. May your life be as blessed as mine is.
