Monday = good

November 9, 2010

Yeah normally Monday are just the beginning of the week and I really don’t say crzy things like, “Monday is awesome!” But yesterday was pretty sweet.

If you don’t know. . I’m getting really really obessed into the quilting hobby. I think what makes me love it so much is I’m making new friends for sure. But also even if I don’t get the quilt done, knowing it will be done is kind of a accomplishment. And it nourishes my creative side. . . or lack there of.

So Friday, when I got paid I bought this fat quarter set from my new favorite online fabric store, Pink Chalk Fabrics. I did try to calling around locally to see if any of the stores had it. . nope (support local first ppl!). But I hearts it!! Called Forest Friends by Cloud 9. It’s all flannel and I was planning to make a simple block quilt out of it. But I am rethinking it now. . .

Recently, found out that I should prewash flannel before quilting it up. I guess flannel frays a lot and shrinks. . . but it’s ohhh so worth it.

I also purchased a super cute pincushion on esty and that arrived yesterday too. . .

I might buy a couple more. . or not since it’s so close to Christmas and we’re not suppose to buy stuff for ourselves near the holiday.

In other news, deconstructing Grandma Newbold’s quilt in my spare time. . . I’ve got some good blocks out of it.
