Just A Few Things...

I thought I'd share just a few things that occurred over the last couple of days. Minus mentions of the laundry, cleaning, homework, preparing/making/serving/cleaning up of the meals and so on and so forth. However, Virginia Woolf would probably disagree with my blatant nonmention of meals and such, but I guess I'll just have to take it up with her. Please, read on...

So, the mail came on Monday...

... and in said mail I received all the fabric to make my cousin's queen sized quilt that will look something like this. Here are the beautiful fabric choices:

I also got some fun stuff of my own in the mail:

It's very boyish and out of my comfort zone so I figured I should give it a shot. However, it is extremely adorable, don't you think?
I tried to get to work right away with the new boy fabric and came up with these:

which I just happen to love. I'm thinking I need 9 total (3x3) with some white sashing and white thread for the quilting... just a thought for now.

And then my daughter happened to look particularly adorable this morning all wrapped up in tutus and feathers and "pretties" and some of my unfinished quilts that were super pink and girly and I just had to make a couple of these:

I find it's much more exhilarating and full of satisfaction for me to make a couple or three or four of something right when the idea and picture pop into my head. That way I know it won't get lost up in there or forgotten (eeeekk! that's the worst...) and I can come back to it when I'm ready and have the time. I used to try to go from start to finish with a lot of pressure and without any breaks... not really what being creative is all about, huh? Well, anyways, this works for me so that's what I'm gonna do. Mmmmmk?


  1. Madi, I love what you're doing with the boy quilt. The colors and the patterns are fabulous!
