I needed yellow thread. I really, genuinely, needed yellow thread. I popped into Cool Cottons on Hawthorne and found said yellow thread. But they had new fabric! Cute new fabric!! Cute new fabric with Pink Flowers!!!
I was powerless to resist. I bought enough for a skirt... but who knows what I'll end up doing with it. And somehow as I walked to the counter to have pay for the fabric & thread, a little Valorie Wells fat quarter jumped into my hand!
I just should not be allowed to enter fabric stores.
On the plus side, I'm really close to finishing up two quilts. The I-spy quilt just needs to have binding attached (which I do by machine like the lazy quilter that I am). Another quilt you haven't seen was half-way through being quilted when I ran out of the yellow thread.
I just need to accept the fact that I'm a fiber stasher, and just start focusing on hiding... I mean... organizing my stashes.
And as if I didn't already have enough sewing/ quilting projects in the queue, I've wound up a few hanks of my Lorna's Laces and have cast on for a swatch. I'm going to make another Everyday Cardigan. It's an easy pattern, I already know how to do it, and I know I like the end result. I'm excited to see how the color changes will show up. Hopefully the blue/purple will be artfully highlighted by the splashes of green, and I don't get like a funky pool of green across my stomach or anything. LOL! Only time will tell.
