My friend Linda S handed me a package yesterday in a plain brown wrapper. NO, not that kind of package, LOL. She said it was "just because" but there was a challenge involved. I am to use the contents for me, myself and I--any scraps can be worked into a kid's quilt but the main quilt or wall hanging is to be for "me". Well, take a look at my 2006 stats and you would see why she might make that stipulation--my personal stuff always seems to take a back seat.
Isn't it cool! Cats from Timeless Treasures . Of course, she knows how much I like cats! I've got a few ideas here but may need to get a bit more of the contrasting fats depending on that pattern decision. No time stipulation, thankfully as I do have some other things that need done first "for pay"
I got distracted when I started to open it though. At a meeting-- what else is new? I can get like a kid with ADD with so much going on. Like, did we have enough batting to pin my last quilt top and was there a big enough piece left somewhere, I think at the time. I am sorry, Linda, that I didn't finish ripping into it and took away some of your surprise element. I don't tear into my mail or packages I get at home either though DJ would like a kid at Christmas. It is wonderful-- I appreciate it and more so, you.
This morning: paperwork. This afternoon/evening: quilt the heart memorial quilt. That will go pretty fast as I have "ghost" hearts marked in the alternating blocks that makes " ditch" work in the hearts and quilting in a zig zag effect in horizontal rows. Any time leftover: binding but I doubt it, LOL. I have to set some goals for the day or I could (and do, far too often to suit my DH) stay in my jammies till noon and play on the computer far too long.
