Blogland, where I can retreat and post (on a hairy-scary realworld day)about frivolous things like my cute pincushions. I got these from a nice woman at the, get this, Antique tractor and quilt show that our WHOLE family went to a few weekends ago. Really, there was something for each of us to see and enjoy. I really liked the graphic lines of the old tractors and THERE WERE QUILTS! We all had a great time (maybe I will post some pics tomorrow.) I also get to share the strawberry needle case that I got at a quilt show. I never thought that I would need something like this, but I do now...it is so handy. Also in Blogland I can frivolously post about new fabric that I bought in Portland during Quilt Market Weekend. I took some money with me that was just for being crazy...I was. There just was this sale (famous last words...)
I have more fabric, of course, but how much can I post?? My favorite piece (right now) is this one:
The Echino booth at the Market had a little purse made out of it...it was just so deliciously weird, like fabric Tim Burton would have lining his suit coat. I like the birds and the spiders and there is a bee... it is just too bizarre. Maybe I will cut it, maybe it will have to go in to the stash and "age" a bit. I can take it out every so often and pet it and think of what it "might" be made in to...We will see.
Did you here that? I feel a bit better now after visiting the Land o' blog. My heart a bit lighter, blood pressure lower...now able to face the next 26 hours, ALONE with THEM, while my husband is in Phoenix on a business trip. (I will be just fine, but what would I be without the drama?)
