We went and saw a movie yesterday – “A Good Day to Die Hard” yes John McClane of Die Hard fame – aka Bruce Willis is still alive and kicking and gets to be in just as rough shape as he always does by the end of the movie and so does junior. I won’t give anything away in case someone wants to see it yet and hasn’t. I love action movies – what can I say! I actually saw the original first 3 Die Hard movies more than once and was so glad they had a new one a couple years ago with his daughter in it and now this one with his son.
I have had a Jelly Roll sitting on the shelf forever – like two years I think! – finally I started last night to think about it and come up with my own design for it – something nice and easy – I have no idea how big this quilt will grow as I haven’t really figured out any sizes, just started to cut and sew. No name at the moment for it. I found the background fabric in 3 different areas on my shelves – you can see how I really need to go through this fabric – but seeing as I found so much of it in so many pieces I got busy cutting 5 inch blocks and I’m using it.
I have a lot left to use - this may be couch size when I get done.
One of my readers Sarah from Upstate NY Creations told me of a product for keeping fabric on shelves neat and I have sent off for some – cardboard for comic books & magazines! I’m not really sure how people use them for comic books and magazines but I have a package of 100 pieces coming to me and it wasn’t costly at all – I ordered from Amazon. These are pre-cut pieces of cardboard about 8 1/2 x 11 and you can just wrap your smaller pieces of fabric around them and stand them up on the shelf and see what you have. I will get busy organizing when I get them. Sarah said she has used them for up to 3 yards or so of fabric on a board.
So many purple finches were around yesterday morning – I could look outside and it looked like the ground was moving there were so many bird out there
What a nice looking woodpecker, but he stayed on the side where I couldn’t get a good shot of him.
those finches just go crazy, so many of them! They are like this every morning.
