Colorful Things

There was a sale at my local quilting fabrics shop this weekend. Every fabric in the store was 40% off. I'm not sure if this is a gift or a curse, but you know I was there. Twice. And I did refrain from buying some of everything I wanted. I only bought 4 yards of my very tippy top favorites. Now for deciding how to use them. I have some ideas, don't you worry. I've already cut one piece to make a shirt, which I'll show you with the dress I made (and wore to school today) as soon as it's done. I'm busy dreaming about what to do with the rest of my new fabric and trying to talk myself into cutting it. Something I don't mind doing with a two dollar sheet. Gourmet fabric? Not so easy.

And I also added some other color to my life in the form of a Trip. Snap. Scream. Roll on the floor and Cry....and then, this:If it isn't broken I'm saying it is, because it sounds stupid to blame my lame limp on a toe stub, which it wasn't. It was a toe snap. But the up side is, Amelia did not dive out the front door as she had been planning to do. When I started screaming she got distracted and moved away of her own volition. So it's the true test of what we Moms say we'd do: take the pain for them if we could. Right? We say it, but do we really mean it? Well, yes, in fact I suppose I do. I have the color to prove it.

  1. Ow, Ow, Ouch!! That toe looks terrible, Heather ... what a great mom you are.

    And the fabric is amazing. What is it with cutting fabric that seems so scary? I have the exact same problem :)

    Good Luck!
