Received quilt

I received a quilt yesterday from the Netherlands! It's so cool and beautiful. I hope she isn't disappointed that I am not supposed to send her a quilt (but I may) but to send mine to Australia. This is truly an international quilt site! I will post pics later.

I found out that the person I am sending my quilt to is a professional quilter. No pressure...right? Also, that she is not necessarily sending hers to me. It's a mystery! Sounds fun.
Marsha and I went to Mobile today. I found a color wheel! I am so excited. I can keep it in my purse. Now I will work this summer toward and camera and ipod. and a printer and a computer (for quilt design) and.....FABRIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New fabric

I was able to go to Janet's in OS today and pick up new fabric for my small quilt I need to get busy on. I got some fabric for the small quilt, some for a breast cancer quilt (beginnings of it anyway), some white/offwhite fabric, some I just liked and then went to WalMart in Ocean Springs and got one of those longgggggggg storage roll carts. I am doing good. Washed the fabric, ironed it and am ready to go tomorrow! Come on rain. See if I care!

I hit a snag on the fabric but plan to get around it. Marsha and Iwill take a trip to Janet's in OS tomorrow to find some fabric to match or contrast or whatever. Found some ok bird applique stuff in one of my books and reduced it. Hope it'll work out ok.

Making a small quilt for the exchange

I have officially begun making my small quilt for Rebecca. I hope it turns out the way I have planned. I went thru my fabric stash today and started putting things together. I plan to make my first block tonight and tomorrow. It'll be the birdhouse block. I hope that Janet's has the companion fabric I need. I may have make a trip over there tomorrow or Wednesday. I'll get Marsha to go with me.
