dec FNSI #1

I think I am calling it a night early. I want to wrap some presents before A gets home from work and I have to go to bed (OK, I go to bed WAY before he comes home but still)

I almost have a top done to donate, I am sort of at a creative stand still. I want to do one neat border but I don't have quite enough to do what I thought of in the first place. I am trying to come up with an alternative. I think I wore out the creative juices for the night.

The top is pink, cream, and green. Four patches that became bigger blocks (12 4 patches per "block") and I have four "blocks" with a very thin border between them. Quite girly. I need to make somethign more masculine!

Next week there's another one. I have stuff for the family planned for that one.

I am thinking of borrowing someones camera to take some pics soon. I also plan on taking all my tops out to my folks house so we can go to a fabric warehouse and get backings for less than normal prices. I should have three, maybe four ready by then.

night all!

Ohhh, pink, cream and green sounds very pretty. Can't wait to see some pictures. Maybe Santa will bring a new camera for Christmas! Get some sleep and maybe you will be more creative tomorrow.

Fabric shopping sounds awesome!!!!

Pink and green - what little girl wouldn't love that?! (Or maybe some big girls...) I hope sleep will recharge your creative juices. And shopping for underpriced fabric? Can I come along?! Have fun!

I know what you mean by the creative juices coming to a stand still from time to time;) Get some rest, and you'll be back on track in no time;) Can't wait to see pictures;)
Happy Quilting!!

I agree with Marsha, pink and green and cream is so pretty together.
Gotta recharge your batteries! Hope you slept well.
