Most people don't know that I have a thing for Asian fabrics. (Thought I only preferred Batiks, didn't ya?) I prefer the earthier tones, but I even like the ones with bling. I guess, truth be told, that I like all fabrics when the mood strikes me. Just depends. I like the geometric designs and the clear, crisp outlines. I made a table runner from these fat quarters. Do I have a picture of it? Nope, because the boys have taken it and use it as a staging area for their coffee addiction. I'll get it washed up and take a picture of it later. Promise.
On other news... I just returned from a very short visit to West Virginia, where I was raised. My nephew and his bride decided to get married at my folks farm. I think I have a picture...isn't that a lovely setting? The wedding was like most- lovely in it's own way.
Now, I have my two neices and my oldest son and his sweet wife and my Sis-in-law, Lisa and my nephew here for the week- maybe a little longer for the neices. That may sound like a house full- especially when my other sis-in-law visits with her children... but it doesn't seem too crowded. The joy of an old farmhouse. A place for everybody. My neices and daughter and son had a knife sharpening party. Only in this house would the girls all have knives in the purses and enjoy a leisurely morning of whet-stoning. We're all having a fun week of just everyday things. Went out to eat with the girls and watched a movie and then today, we made a thrift shop run. Found some jean skirts and some tops to go with. Don't really have any other plans. I am sure that Joe will be requesting Chinese- hoping his wife can overcome her severe allegies to Indiana- the corn is tassling. Zyrtec might help.
So... I haven't been sewing or quilting much. Wonder why? Distracted I guess.
