So, I ventured into my studio, which has become a dumping ground between all my summer travels. I went in looking for my Thomas Knauer Fabrics for our NYC Metro MOD baby quilt Guild Challenge, (could not locate them...I know I put them somewhere that I wouldn't forget!) isn't that the way it always goes? They will turn up... Then I found my 15 minute play Color Challenge blocks... YIPPEE! Need to get them finished too! So I popped them up on the wall to find my final layout... You can imagine, my motions through the studio are totally discombobulated! Distracted, all over the place, finding little discoveries as I plod through piles and piles of stuff...
I now have a big box for all the quilt tops I accumulated this summer. That's a start! Here's one above. I think it is THE UGLIEST quilt top I have ever bought. For some reason I am totally drawn to it just for that reason. Well, and it's orange... My favorite color... I couldn't pass it up. It's made of poly blend, stiff cargo pants material and shirtings... just a mess. (and I love it. HA HA!)
One new toy that I have is the Simplicity 12 needle FELTING Machine! Yes, I took 15 minutes yesterday to set it up. I cut some pieces of felt and started playing... How could I not! I have some ideas for some projects, and really need to start collecting WOOL SCRAPS. I have NONE. Anyone feel the need to be rid of any wool, you know where to send it... (Wishful thinking?) (trade?)
CONGRATS LADIES! Send me your info, and I will get these posted ASAP.

As I was walking by my front door, I caught a glimpse of what I thought was a BUZZARD sitting on my gate... Since we don't have Buzzards, it could only be the pesky tomato thief...Mr. Turkey...BUZZ OFF!
Stop back tomorrow... one more giveaway coming!
I'm off to wander, aimlessly, through my messy studio once again... I've got ideas for the Thomas Knauer baby quilt...
