New project

Even though I try really hard to stay out of fabric stores so I don't spend money, occasionally I fall of the wagon. I had a stack of fat quarters that I have been collecting staring me in the face every time I went into my family room. They were kind of funky fabrics that would eventually find their way into my "what the heck was I thinking?" pile. So I decided that I'd better make them into something while I was still interested in them. I took my good friend (a truly good friend will always help you spend money on fabric) with me to my fave quilt shop & bought the rest of what I needed to fashion a small quilt. The biggest piece I got 20% off, so I feel less guilty. I actually felt letdown after I finished getting the fabric when I realized that now I had to actually go home and do the dirty work. So in order to avoid the oh-so-common pitfall of buying, starting, but not finishing yet another project, I am going to post the evidence of my addiction on my blog and hold myself accountable to all the world. Ok, maybe only to the 7 people who actually look at my blog. So here is my fabric, and soon, within the next two weeks, I hope I will post the finished project!

Oh, and as an added bonus, here is a picture of my adorable child who is now seven weeks old.
