So I don't know if anyone else notices this too about themselves, but I have noticed that I go through phases of what I am interested in doing. Sometimes it is crafting, other times it's not. Right now its not. Well, at least I still think about it but never seem to pick up a needle and thread or any other sewing instrument. Case in point, I went to Joann Fabrics tonight and bought.... nothing. Not a thing. I thought about buying some ribbon to use as a blanket border, and then decided not to. Thought about buying a zipper and then chickened out on matching the color right. So I bought nothing. Not even one fabric remnant.... which Savannah would have protested not getting if she had noticed it go back on the shelf the third time I tried to put it back. (Yes I tried twice before to put it back to her protests but in the end I did win and she didn't even know it.)
So what am I into right now??? Reading. I have been itching to read lately. In fact I went on Amazon to buy some books, found 8 that I was swooning over, all from the same dealer. So when I get them, I am going to grab them and a nice big cup of hot chocolate.... ahhhhhhhh.
The only crafting project that I am thinking about starting is a blanket for midget 2. A while ago I found some pink... oh what's that material called with the fuzzy stripes.... on the remnants rack. Neither piece was big enough for making a blanket but together they would. I just can't figure out how I want to sew them together. I think I want to do squares that rotate the direction of the stripes.... (I will think of the name of the fabric soon...) but can't decide how many squares to do. I am thinking I can't go too small with the fabric squares cause then the seems will get to bulky, but I don't want just two rectangles either.... and I would have to back it too.... CHENILLE!!!! (that is the name of the fabric. I told you I would think of it.)
So anyway, any ideas on how to mix the two pieces of chenille without it getting too bulky????
