Quilting and mending are *not* related. One I look forward to eagerly. I carefully plan my week around a block of time dedicated to bonding with scraps of fabric. I try to snag some extra moments to try new fabric combinations or sketch another design. The other, I am quite adept at avoiding. I've had this bed spread, three shirts and a pair of shorts waiting for my attention for a couple of months now. It's a good thing my daughter needed the shorts hemmed for a Memorial Day parade. My inertia has finally been overcome and the pile of mending is gone! Oh... and my mom has been waiting for me to return her bed spread from that black hole called my mending pile....

Yes! I finally did something with that fun kitty fabric I found a few months ago. But did I remember to take pictures of the darned bag before sending it off??? Nope. Aurgh!!!! Somebody save me from myself! It was only hanging on a door knob for a week waiting to be wrapped!!!
Here is a photo of the bag in progress... I paired the goofy kitties with some fun batiks in autumn hues. And added a grommet to the front flap with a large, pretty bead. In an attempt to make a grown-up bag. It still fell a bit shy of grown-up, but it is interesting. Guess you'll just have to take my word for it since I neglected my camera :o)

Well... I went to take the summer off and GUESS WHAT??? Several people found this silly blog at once. And I was invited to join a fashion-blog group. Through this quilty-dorky blog. Me?!? Fashion?!? My look is, "SO-TOTALLY-DORK-I-HEAR-SNICKERING!" Well... *THAT* was a short-lived vacation :o) Sooooo... the newly appointed fashion-dork will continue to dispense trivial bits of non-information. Just got to get that sewing machine up and running again....

Ok... I'm a little early, but I'll be taking the summer off from this blog. (OK, OK, OK... scratch that... See next post...) With the girls home, I get very little sewing time. And the end of the school year is so filled with concerts, sporting events, end-of-school field trips, appointments, and substitute teaching that I seem to have run out of time already. (Yada, yada, yada... do you feel sorry for me yet?) I will continue my other blog, http://happythought42day.blogspot.com/ This is a random collection of mostly up-beat thoughts. Please check it out :o) And if you enjoy my ramblings, click on the "follow this blog" button on the side column. I do love knowing that you are reading! Thank you :o)
