I am home from work for a few weeks recuperating from surgery. My friends and colleagues have been so generous with surprises to keep me cheery – flowers, books, candles, snacks – and these few are just from the second floor! As happy as these sweet gifts make me, it is a bummer to be home and not be able to work and not be able to sew. I am just not a “sit still” kind of girl.
Then I realized, I may not be able to sew, but I can shop! Fatquartershop.com to the rescue. It really is two hobbies – the sewing and quilting and the fabric collecting.
Beyond a few other stash builders, I grabbed these charm squares from the Robert Kaufman Blueberry collection. I bought the cool color way at QuiltCon and made it into a table runner. I actually liked it so much that I didn’t finish it and bought a second pack to make it into a lap quilt. And then bought two of the bright color way to make a companion piece.
So many projects but I can’t get down to the studio yet. So for now I shop and create ideas and patterns for projects.
