What’s Up, Wednesday?

I have a confession: I write blog posts in my head. They’re really amazing… perfectly worded with lots of pretty pictures full of creative inspiration.Then reality sets in- I can’t find the camera. There’s a bunch of stuff in the way. It’s gloomy outside and the studio looks less than inviting. All that progress I’m making doesn’t look like much in the picture….the list goes on.

I love Christmas, especially its colors.

After whipping out some last-minutes gifts I had this irresistible pile on my table (yes, that’s a sock missing its mate…). Instead of putting it away I played a little, sewing bits and scraps together to make something new. ┬áIn my excitement I cut my made-fabric into 6-1/2″ squares, and probably should have thought that through. I want to make a Christmas snowball quilt and 6-1/2″ squares means I need a ton of them to make a quilt big enough to snuggle under. Rats.

And this fun black and white swirl called to me from the top of the pile that is perfect for the background…. only I thought I had more and I don’t, which means I’ll have to come up with something else and rip this one out. Double rats.

  1. Oh, I totally write blog posts in my head that never make it on ‘paper’. I just did it tonight on the way home from work. It was completely inspired and was going to be my post for tomorrow.

    Except that I can’t remember it.

    That’s what happens when you have a 2 and 4 year old to get to bed before sitting down to write.

    Everything’s gone.

    Oh well, I’m sure I’ll come up with something {a little less} inspired tonight!

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog & for the encouragement. This is fun!


  1. […] that piece of black and white love? That’s the one I didn’t have enough of for my snowball blocks. And I love love love it. And I really wanted to use it on something that lives here, because I […]
