This is my very first real crazy quilt block!!! I have made crazy quilt blocks in cottons but have never embellished with trims or goo gaws. This time I really will do it! I bought 2 of Judith Montano's books off ebay and they are on their way to their new home as I write this! Im excited!
I used to buy all kinds of silkies and brocades and fancy fabrics when I used to make my own clothes but 10 years ago I gave it up because my body got too big and I hate custom fitting myself! Another reason to go buy the pretties again! Yippee!
I definitely need to improve on my stash of goo gaws and trimmins. These were given to me by Carole so at least I have this to start with! And I bought some DMC floss a couple weeks ago so I guess I can use it since I wasted money on it hahaha! Now I know there is better stuff to use that I wont have to "pull apart"
Im thinking a trip to the store is in need as well so i can purchase some kind of storage system to store all these lovelies into. I want something that I can open but each compartment wont all be exposed. I have a tendency to drop things and wind up with everything on the floor! So like a medibox or a tacklebox will be great!
Have a great day!
