Add to that some family drama - is it just my family that dregs up the family drama around the holidays or everyones? - and basically it has been a bad environment for being creative. Hmm...I've really got to change this mojo...
Anyway, I did actually get something accomplished today and technically just under the wire for WIP Wednesday! Whew hew! I had completely neglected to mention my being involved in the Color Wheel Swap Part 2 being hosted at From the Blue Chair.
We were asked to pick a light and dark of our color. So I went with Gypsy Bandana in pink and Flora & Fauna in raspberry. I have been dying to use this pattern in the Flora & Fauna collection and when the fabric arrived it definitely lived up to my expectations. Yum! Look at those bees...aren't they adorable? I was left with an extra 1/2yd of it (I was afraid I might mess up my cutting so I ordered extra just in case) and am trying to decide what I could do with it next!
As requested by Kati, I paired up the two fabrics (not show here, don't worry I did it correctly, ha), creating two mixed piles, and placed them in ziplock bags before shipping them off to her this afternoon. I am really happy with the choices I made and can't wait to see how they look with everyone else's!
Now, I'd like to ask you to all take a moment to reflect on the above photo... Is there anything more delicious to a quilter than a tidy fat stack of fabric charms? UM YUM!!! Can I get a hollah?
In the spirit of turning my blue mood around I am actually going to try to tackle my Christmas Tree tonight. A bit early I know, but as my mother says when you are in the mood to make up a tree you have to just go with it. I hope it will get me back in the swing of things. How are you all getting along these days? Maybe I'll find you linked up at WIP Wednesday...
