Right now I'm hand quilting my Plaid One Patch with Strings (I completed the top almost 2 years ago). It is so wonderful quilting through those recycled shirt fabrics, which are so soft. That made me go out on a buying expedition to Goodwill. These are all shirts except for the fabulous pink and green plaid shorts:
Yesterday I was "forced" to buy some Moda handwovens that are luxuriously soft. And my quilt guild had a "garage sale" and I found some great plaids that way too:
The formerly-owned fabrics were mostly darks, but I did get some of this fabulous pink, orange and yellow. I think that's a Piece O'Cake from years ago, which I loved when it came out but that was in the days when I (oh so foolishly) refused to buy orange or yellow fabric unless it was for Halloween. My how times have changed.
I've been disappointed in my tv viewing this week. The most recent Fringe and Lost episodes were merely "meh" verging on "bleah."
Has anyone else been watching "9 by Design" on Bravo? When the show focuses on the couple, who gut and redo homes in Manhattan, I love it. They have a great design esthetic. But all the stuff about their seven (yes seven eeek) kid? gack, that I fast forward through.
Pokey continues to overgroom herself, but I'd rather have her happy than furry - I've given up trying to get her to stop. At least for now. I'll just try to play with her more and give her extra lovings (as if that's even possible) and see if that helps.
Ya'all take care.
