Good girl, bad girl today...

Good girl - I went to help Pg with her first experience using this machine and a quilt frame...
My first experience too.... 8-)
Bad girl - I slept in and was an hour late... 8-/
Turned out my help wasn't really needed after all, but I stayed and did some stitching on a binding, and did some chatting with some other gals from our quilt group that happened to be there also... Good time... 8-)
Oh! Thanks for lunch Pg!!! Yummy...

Bad girl also cause I bought more fabric... 8-/
BUT... some of it is for making Christmas table toppers... so that can be considered good girl behavior... Right!? lol! 8-)

The 3 fabrics to the left are for the toppers, and the 1 on the right is the extra wide backing fabric for one of my PhDs...
The black and whites are for my collection of same.
I couldn't pass them up at 40% off!!! Could I? 8-)
As usual there were some new class samples hanging in the shop.
This is Ed's gorgeous table topper... Love it!!!
This is Ed's Stack & Whack made from some quilt theme printed fabrics...
A block close up....
Another block close up...Which lead to more bad girl behavior.... FQs...
The devil made me do it!!! I had too!!!
The plan, to use these FQs in a sewing room door hanging... 8-)

That be enough nonsense from me today!!!
Back to my "projects"... #3 is almost done, and 1 more to go!!!

Have a great weekend!
Happy stitchings!
Myra

Buying fabric doesn't count as bad girl behaviour because...um..I'm pretty sure there is a reason. I just haven't thought of it yet. I need that reason too, since our trip to Grand Forks.

LOVE! the fabrics! I have yet to make a stack and whack (I bought the fabric for it 5 years ago :( )
The one you shared is very pretty!
In my opinion you were a good girl after all you purchased a bargain :)

Oh I'd say good too!~ good times ahead with those lovely choices! ;-)

Brenda said...

Good Girl all the way!!!!!

I didn't see any bad behavior there at all - none, not even once!!!

And I love the sewing fabic used in the Stack 'n Wack - I love seeing this type of print used in this type of blk. Makes the blocks come alive. One Block Wounder is another great place to use novelty prints!!!

I am glad you had such a great day!! And many, many more to come!!

Myra,
The fabrics are terrific- love the sewing machine stack and whack- I have only made one stack and whack and it was not my favorite quilt. I never did get the background quite right. This one is really lovely.

You didn't just add to your stash so that is pretty good. Some of us add to our stash just because we love to add to them- that is me being bad. At least you have a plan..
No matter- there are worse things than being a fabric collector.
Enjoy your new fabrics and have fun with the long arm.
Warmest regards,
Anna

I have a stack and whack book and CANNOT figure it out. Yours look wonderful!

Michelle said...

It sounds like you were a good girl to me!

Bec said...

What an awsome stack and wack! Nah, you werent' bad. I know from talking to you that you can show amazing restraint.... Looking forward to seeing your door hanging.
