OK, so I know I'm on a fabric buying moratorium. But I have gone and bought a few shirts from the Goodwill (less than 10, though, in two months). And they were really great shirts, I might add. Anyhow, I saw this new line of fabric advertised on Fat Quarter Shop....Lakehouse's Fun Flowers. They totally said "Buy me now, Vic"....so I headed down to Fabric Boutique and snagged two yards of the flower print and a few fat quarters. Total spent: $42.
Can't you just picture the flowers fussy cut and then something amazing going on with the colored fat quarters around the flower? What is the amazing thing that will happen? Well, we all must wait and see because that is a bit unclear. I thought about a log cabin sort of thing....or maybe making them the centers of some stars....or.....???? Anyhow, I just had to have them for a wall quilt for my classroom. But first I must make a little Valentine one for after the holidays. I wanted to make a holiday quilt/winter quilt but I don't want to offend any of the inmates who don't celebrate anything. But a pink and red Valentine will be perfect for Jan/Feb....
So that is my confession. But they had the ENTIRE LINE OF BLISS and I didn't buy a thing. I'm not going to touch/fondle the jelly roll of Bliss for my giveaway. I've secured it out of sight for safe keeping...Not to worry, folks...all is well here! But I must say, I feel like I pimped myself out for some new followers with the giveaway. I now have 39 followers...wow, the pressure! I guess I need to get on my quilting J-O-B and get some stuff done, huh? Thanks for reading (or at least looking at the pictures--and yes, I should have at least ironed the crease out of the flower print....LOL)!
Also, I posted an actual pic of myself on my profile. I wanted to drop 30 pounds first but then I figured you'd NEVER see the real me...So that is it...I'm not a skinny little cartoon avatar with perfect hair! ;-D
