Mindless Chatter

Well here I am, once again, sitting in front of this computer screen after a days work and playing Mahjongg (or however you spell it).  But I have not disappeared.

I have started a diaper bag.  My friend Vanessa has a baby shower in a couple weeks.  She had some fabric she wanted to use for a gift.  And who else would she get to make her diaper bag but yours truly.  When it is finished I will show you the end result.

In the meantime, we have some catching up to do.  My remodel project is coming along, although not fast enough for me.  When it is done though I can sort out fabric so I know what I have to work with.  I also have some leftover yarn scraps that may get used for some embellishing.  I have decided that I really need to use some so I can buy more without getting overloaded.  Too much means confusion for me and I just don't know where to start first.  I do think though that since I have a small container with small pieces I may make some cosmetic type bags to use them.  That means I will have a start on the church bazaar for this fall.  Maybe even something for this summer.

I have been wanting to do some more crazy quilting and crumb piecing.  Many many ideas have been floating around.  I have started putting them on paper so I don't forget.  That is where the ideas, crazy as some of them may be, end up.  If only I could do these things as fast as the mind conjures them up.

I have been visiting some blogs that have giveaways.  Don't you think they are fun!!!!  I may have to put that idea in the pot with the others and think about that too.

I should probably shut down and decide where I will start tomorrow after my 2 cups of coffee.  Catch ya all soon.

No Stash for Me

I, for one have a large amount of fabric. (I refuse to say a huge amount, for that would mean I would have a lot of trouble justifying buying more.)  So in my own defense and for the peace of mind of all my fabric  and patterns buying friends out there in the sewing world, here is my new explanation (and making my self not feel guilty) when purchasing more fabric than some think I need or any type of supplies for any number of sewing project that I deem necessary it shall, from this day forward, be referred to, not as my stash but as my RESOURCE CENTER.  We all know that we need lots of resources
 LOL  now don't we.
