Can't sleep, so there's no doubt I'll be dragging my feet later on. Sometimes it's just hard to get to sleep and stay asleep. Maybe it's the thousand or so thoughts racing through my mind. You know, scattered thoughts about what didn't get finished that day. Or what will get accomplished tomorrow. Seems like I have a running "to do" list in my mind at all times. Exercise, especailly yoga, is great to get myself relaxed, but usually it's just more quiet time for me to concentrate on "the list". Shopping is also a great get-away for a few hours, I end up buying things I need on "the list". Vacations and holidays are always great, but then I find myself longing for the list and feeling guilty that I couldn't check something off it that day. Even though the list grows and shrinks constantly, I'm convinced I will never be rid of the list. It's attached to me and to be honest I would be lost without it. Ordered these fabrics before our move and I just love them. They will make a really fun quilt, but I'm stuck on what pattern to use. I want to show off the larger print fabrics and minimize the smaller print wild ones. Any suggestions? I also bought this group of fabrics:
Aren't these fabrics yummy? I love much that I'm afraid to cut into them. So, really, give me your suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. :o)

these are both really fun. I think I'd do something like make 6 or 8 or 10 inch squares of the larger prints and then surround them with 2 inch "borders" of strings or stripped rectangles. I love the utensil fabric. good luck.

Know exactly what you mean and when you really want to go to sleep you can't as that damn list is running through your mind at a pace!

I love the cutlery fabric.

Not much use in how to use them I'm afraid, but best of luck.

Hi Sandy, so happy to hear that you are joining us in the countdown to New Years Eve!! I've got the link addy, and now I need to know how many unfinished projects you'd like to commit yourself to finishing *VBS*
Just drop me an email at and I'll get you listed.
Beautiful fabric you bought! Hugs, Finn
