So, on that shopping trip, I picked up some lovely Amy Butler fabric (with Wendy's help) and had to make this bag:
In my early days of building my modest fabric stash, I got a great deal on a little pile of wine themed fat quarters (OK, go with what you know). I have been pondering what to do with them and have decided on a table topper. This is a WIP on my cutting board:
Between playing with these small projects, I have also been noodling about the next BIG project: a quilt for my bed. Last fall we finally had our bedroom and bathroom painted and remodeled to remove the 80's look (think gold paint and pink tile...Yikes!). As we needed to make color decisions quickly, we went with a neutral color (what a shock) Benjamin Moore Smoke Embers gray. I would love to do something modern and spa-like. With the gray walls and the green uber-comfy chair (the ONLY survivor from the early days), I am collecting cool color fabrics to inspire me. And then there is the question of what quilt pattern to use...oh my! We may go without a quilt for a very, very long time!
