I was laughing to myself last night....one of those "roll over minutes" commercials came on.
You know the one where the kid thinks his roll over minutes are not as good as new minutes on his cell phone? And his mom says "Some other kid would be HAPPY to have your roll over minutes!"
I think of my older fabrics and my scraps as my "roll overs". They are just as good as the new stuff, and even though I love the new stuff, I am just as happy making quilts out of my old stuff. My roll-over scraps. :cD Isn't that silly?!
I'm working on these "Nine-in-the-middle" blocks for a future project. The 9 patches in the center are of course made from leaders & enders. All scrappy, with light corners, dark crosses, with red in the centers. I'm not sure how I'll set them yet, I only know I need to make about a gazillion more :c)
The mystery quilt center is finished, and I priority mailed it off to Quiltmaker yesterday so they can choose "new" border fabric. I guess it can't be a roll-over!
All my ducks are ALMOST in a row for my trip to the Netherlands next Monday. I'm staying with Lucy, teaching two workshops, having an interview and photo shoot with Quiltmania! The folks from Quiltmania are coming all the way from France for this! Lucy, Joes, Isabeau, Me....and TONYA! What fun we are going to have!
