Toys, Toys, Toys!!!
My productivity is badly suffering in the creating department. All I'm doing is dreaming, collecting, and buying, it seems. I'm getting my energy level back up from being sick with so many things for so long. I had a dental appointment today, went shopping afterwards, and just couldn't live without this book! I really have got to stop this and start creating with what I have. But aren't these the cutest little animals to crochet?!? Crocheting is so portable and these little creatures require so little yarn and should work up quickly. I have so much yarn on-hand, too. There's just nothing like starting a new project! It just thrills me to no end!
Also, I am still collecting the fabrics for the I Spy quilt. I found a little place that is going out of business and had Moda, Robert Kaufman, etc. (nice) fabrics 50% off. I get anywhere from 1/16 yd. to 1/4 yd. for this quilt, depending on the size of the design I will use and I spent $20 (including tax!) and got 20 pieces of fabric to use. I will have plenty leftover for other I Spy quilts because the designs run a 45 inch width and I am using a design only one time. Some of the fabrics have many designs I can use but they do repeat across this 45 inch width. I know, I know - I sound like I am trying so much to justify spending money in this economic crunch!
I do have a free weekend (unless something pops up) and I DO plan to get busy and go to work and hope to have some actual results to post on here!
