Since I finished my "big" project I thought it would be fun to do a nice small project - instant gratification! So, a gal I work with, Vikkie, received a Kindle last weekend for her anniversary present. Of course, I asked if she'd like a pouch for it. She said she'd like fairies, butterflies, or dragonflies. I took in each of the fabrics falling into that catagory from my stash and she liked all of them! The wheels started creaking in my head and this is what I came up with:
I'll take it in on Monday for her, hopefully she'll like it! I've been wanting to try out zig zags for awhile now. I'm wondering if there is a way to cut down on the bulk in the intersection seams?? eh. Anyhow, I like the way it turned out. The little half square triangles turned out so teeny tiny that unfortunately only the really small prints are distinguishable. Today, I am washing up fabric to start my hammock quilt. I'm thinking: sunny, bright, and maybe pinwheels?
SO I have a little confession. I haven't been to church in well over a month. I've just been so sleepy and wanting to make sure that I got Irma's quilt done.....but also a little bit avoiding people. eeeek. You might as well know that I am not much of a small talker. Therefore, if there's a situation where I might need to awkwardly try and talk to people I avoid. This past week I have felt a little convicted about avoiding church because of that.....therefore I'm going to make myself go tomorrow. And what better day than Easter Sunday, right? I might show up a teensy bit late since I also don't sing out loud.....LOL!
Hmmm, what else? I also finished up a book - finally! Geez. So, Jan's daughter said if I liked the Percy Jackson series (which I did) then I'd like the Artemis Fowl series. Yes, I am taking book advice from a 10 year old. Anywhoo I borrowed the book from the library and just couldn't quite get into it. I think I figured out this morning it could be because Artemis is the "bad" guy with very few moments of regret or conscience. But, I did finish it and I'm glad! Mostly a good storyline. I'm relieved to have finished so I can start the book I've really been wanting to read but wouldn't let myself until I finished the first one I started: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. I like his writing style, very easy to read. He's the author who wrote the Percy Jackson series and from the first few pages I think I'll like it. I haven't read the ending yet, but I'm sure I will :)
