So, the next big event around here is the Gals and Pals shopping day: next weekend. Speaking of which, I’m supposed to be a model in the style show, and I forgot to call the clothing store that is doing the style show to make an appointment to get outfitted. Note to self: make phone call.
The key thing to remember here is that I’m prepping my make-and-take project NOW, and not, say, next Friday. (This represents real growth on my part, I think.) I think that the idea is actually going to work as planned, so I’m willing to talk about it. It’s actually Mom’s idea: we are going to do fiber postcards. Really, really, simple, most-of-its-already-done fiber postcards.
I’m going to have the postcards all fused and zigzag the edges, and a bunch of prefused fabric ready for people to cut into simple shapes. No sewing, just fusing shapes in place. I still need to make a couple more samples, but here’s a start:
(the heart cherries are based on something I saw on Tracey aka peppermintpatcher’s blog). The white pumpkin is based on wallhanging I’m working on.
So, the crazy part? Yeah. I need to prep about 75-100 cards. This, my MQResource postcard swapping friends, is why I’m going to be late on my postcard swapping obligation…
After this event, I think the next big thing is my trip to teach at Quilting with Machines*** in Ohio. After that is the high school musical, though, that actually starts in earnest next week, when I get to start going to rehearsals. After THAT, I can’t remember what’s next. Oh! After that is my trip to see my sister and her family for a long weekend… And somewhere in there I have several big customer quilt projects.
Tonight, though, I guess we are going to watch the movie Elf. Mark called and suggested the boys run to the library to pick out a movie. No idea how or why they chose this one, but…maybe it’ll be good for a few laughs??
