Ok, I was at Safeway, yes, the grocery store, the one I frequent for the staples of life… milk, eggs, fruit, oh wait…. the impulse isle-a fabric throw made of recycled material! $6.99 what a deal? and for a 60×60 piece of fabric-come on quilters, don’t you agree? Being impulsive and a little ADHD, yes… I bought it!
Feeling righteous for buying an eco-friendly product, and oh so thrifty (it is so not me, but I am trying), I thought I could embellish it with my new Baby Go! Did I say I was impulsive and a little ADHD? A friend gave me a beautiful Amazon Gift Certificate and I got my frivolous and all important new quilting tool. Okay, I am sorry, Baby Go, you are not frivolous, you are a tool. I stand corrected… yes, by myself.
Okay, I digress, or progress, who knows… I pulled out the Baby Go for the first time- WOOO HOOOO! Geez… a little cute girl thought it was fascinating as well… Ahhh, another “teachable moment” – that is my new code phrase.
Focus Linda. Okay, but isn’t she cute? I so love her… Yes, Ella primarily and yes, also the Go Baby…
Onto the project, right? I pulled out the eco-find and decided to Eva Bernina the flowers (it seemed to so tropical and fun) to embellish with these great pops of color. Oh, and of course, the colors are so our QUTI colors-yes, I have QUTI on the brain!!!
The sick part of this story is I woke up in the middle of the night and had to sew the binding. Yes, you “heard” that right. After sleeping for four hours, I woke up at 1 and sewed until 3:30am… I must seek professional help I am sure!!!! I even talked to myself and said “Linda, this is lame… why are sewing in the middle of the night? and why can’t you stop?” I said, back to myself, “Well, I just need to finish the binding so I can feel like I accomplished something.” “Oh,” I said, “That’s lame.” I said, “Yes, it is but it is soooo me!”
Well, there it is… just four flowers and my beautiful binding!
