Just the beginning.......

Are you a quilter that gets excited when you begin a new project because you may have an idea of what the end product will be, but REALLY do you?.....That is me with this project. 



I freehand cut these pieces at the skate park yesterday while Noah scootered.  Its a great day when I can fit a rotary cutter, cutting board, huge stack of fabrics, scissors and 3 quilt books in a beach bag and start cutting....A breeze came up so I was giggling as I had pieces flying here and there amidst chewed gum and litter on the sidewalk.

This is the beginnings but far from satisfied with the sizings...seems to have a curvy appeal of Diane Hire, May just have a second quilt coming up with her influence....

Happy Friday, may it be....

GODWINK!!! I drove the kids up to my MILs on Wed night so I could meet my hubby in Philly yesterday afternoon for our flight to San Francisco (I think I DID so you waving down there!). Anyway, I wanted to spend some time with the kids on Thurs morning, so I took them to a bike path and walked along sipping iced coffee very contentedly while they scootered ahead and around me. Maybe our kids were scootering at the same time! We also stopped at a quilt shop where I picked up a bit more Kona Snow to finish a Bee Block, and both the boys picked out a FQ for themselves. Donald picked out some cowboy fabric (that's my boy!) and Jason picked out a blue because he wants to make a 2-sided quilt, dark blue and blak on 1 side and light and green on the other, like the earth's day and night. Love ya!
