I know better than this.

Can you spot the problem?
*hint - check out the red rug
I decided to do some house laundry the other day, you know some of the rugs & dish towels and stuff like that (well, and a pair of socks that I took off while in the living room and thus ended up in the house laundry basket rather than in my clothes basket).

* white sock & washcloth for comparison. That's some serious pink!

It looks like the Cat in the Hat did my laundry! Oh well, it was just house laundry, not work clothes or anything - and you all know how much I love pink. =) On to crafts!

I've been working on my patriotic quilt. It's fun to work on something that's small in overall size, but has larger blocks. I also made a design decision to include different sized blocks for the stripes. I did this solely because I'm tired of my blocks not lining up when I stitch in the ditch! Yes I'm cheating - call the quilting police. But it goes soooooo much faster this way!

Now I'm trying to make some decisions about the tone of the quilt. I had originally planned it to be a sincere tribute to my homeland, but then thought of maybe adding a little humor to it. But I don't think so now. I think I'm going to stick with my original tone, and I'm going to try to finish it by Independence day.

Yikes on the pink sock, maybe now "accidently" repeat for a pair ;)!

Love the Patriotic quilt! Looking good! :)

I turned one of my bf's favorite shirts yellow once. I was freaking out! I'm not allowed to do his laundry anymore. I guess it worked out for the best though! ;)

I love your flag quilt! I made little foundation pieced flags once, but I've always wanted to do a bit red, white, and blue one for summertime.
