I survied the excercise, but, I want a pink sash...

OMG! I'm sore, but alive and slept the best I had in a long time. After viewing the video in the previous post, I think if I had a pink sash to wear, it could help. I went with a friend,who also hadn't been to an aerobics class in a long time, but, I'm hesitant to call her to ask if she's sore. I don't want to be negative or discourage her. We both faked it pretty well, I think, but we go back again tomorrow at 9:00am and we'll see how it goes. All I know is, I've got to do some exercise to feel good. As much as I like quilting, it is a sedentary hobby and I must make myself move more. This workout routine is 1hour and 15 minutes with aerobics, weights, and mat work/Pilate's. The instructor has been teaching the class, at our church, for 18 years! So of course, it's all very easy to her and I think she hasn't had someone so new, or at least in a long time. Oh well, it can't hurt

Lavender's, Bread of Life, and Quilt King Products

Well, we had a great day on the road here in Kentucky, USA. My oh my what a wonderful day. Of course, buying fabric is always fun and I've been sooooo good and haven't bought much at all in the last few months. But, that's all gone now. I've loaded up, big time. I think it was a combination of PMS-you know how those hormones reek havoc, and lack of purchasing for so long-spending withdrawals-the pain. Plus, it didn't help my non purchasing strength, being in a group of 15 quilt fabric shoppers, all in a frenzy to buy fabric for less than $3.00 a yard. Oh yes, and we had temporarily lifted the fat quarter penalty for purchasing, thank goodness-I'm weak I tell ya! Anyway, here's my lovelies.

Flannel is my favorite fabric for ba
cking-it's the most cozy/comfortable, in my opinion. This is 8 yards of flannel for my future vintage quilt that's growing in my mind.

I've got a Chri
stmas quilt in a box-did I mention it's only the fabric and pattern ready to go? Well now I've the backing for the future quilt/WISP. It's a wonder I remember these projects, because they've been on the shelf for at least 2 years! But, you know, they don't go bad on the shelf and I'll get to

Here's some funky fabric,
I just couldn't resist. You know, I'm always preaching to my friends to stretch yourself and try something know, so you don't get bored or go stale on your interest. But, there is something deep within me that pulls me back to a little more unique or unusual quilt/fabrics. Love, Love,

Of course, all quilter's
should have a good supply of tone on tone and I like to have white on white on hand. It's hard to see, but this is cream and white dots and flowers. It's great for scrap quilts or a pieced background, and piecing white on white greatly enhances the visual texture of a quilt.

Here's my
future vintage quilt. I was really wanting to find some strawberries in a vintage print, struck out, but, I'm quite happy with this much anticipated work in progress. Here's a future great UFO...don't know yet, it just said buy me...what can I say, I was weak with hormone over run and lack of purchasing syndrome.

Now this is a future project for my husband.

When our girls were young we traveled to the Southwest-New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and we went to several pueblos and Mesa Verde. So here's another great quilt that's soon to be on my shelf.

And last, but not least,
this fabric contains all the critters that we see in our back yard. The one they are missing is a skunk, but, I'm sure if I'm feeling this way again, maybe I'll be near skunk fabric and will buy more to sit on the shelf beside this fabric, soon to be another quilt that I'll complete with the help of my friends. Happy Quilting.
