Much to my glee, my power cord arrived today! So that meant I could finally post my photographs from yesterday. As I mentioned a few posts ago, I drove 2.5 hours to a spotlight store in Tamworth, crazy as it sounds to some of you, I'm a crafter, and us crazy crafters go to great lengths to get supplies.

I walked around their fabric section for a good almost hour, laughing with my friends at waterproof flannelet making a pile of fabric choices the size of a small mountain. Emily went with blues after many choices, and Emma went with her lovely soft looks she does all to well.. I on the other hand was going for a Rainbow on crack kind of deal. I wanted this quilt to make me smile when I was feeling a bit grey. So with that in mind, here is some of the crazy beautiful things I chose.

I sat down at my little sewing desk, (card table with a hot table cloth lol) and started marking out the dimensions of our squares soon to be two triangles!

Keep in mind, that I am good at many things, knitting, spinning, crocheting, and dyeing yarn, paper craft and drawing, but put me in front of a sewing machine and I start to break into a nervous sweat.
I know with time, and a little patience I will win the battle and be a sewer as well.

but I'm Still an Artist at heart.
a little sore, after my very first mowing experience! I feel very country now hehe.
So now I shall make some soup and read a little.
Enjoy your yesterday, and today.
love C
