I have a great feeling about 2014. I just know it’s going to be a great year, both quilt-wise and otherwise 🙂
I am participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year and the RSC2014 color for January is blue. Specifically bright & dark blues. I’d like to make two blocks each month so I’ll have 24 blocks to make a rainbow quilt at the end.
I snuck off to the GW Clearance center again for some last minute thrifted gifts (that’s the rule for this particular holiday exchange – they must be thrifted 😉 ) and look what else I found.
The one below is a fabulous red with a great pattern but it’s a dud…….97% cotton and 3% the dreaded spandex. Isn’t it a fun, strapless summer dress though? It’s in perfect shape and washed up beautifully. Any size 7’s out there??? Oh well, at $0.79/lb, it’s nothing to cry over except that I just love the color & pattern.
I lost my best quilting friend, Darlene, in 2013 and I still think of her everyday. I’m sure I will continue to think of her everyday in 2014 and that’s a good thing because I can continue to relive our great times together and be comforted that she’s watching the fabric fly 🙂 Here’s to you, Darlene!
