....then beggars would be kings!
And I'd accomplish a whole lot more than I do!
Last summer, it finally dawned on me
that I just can't make everything I see!
Others seem to.
They make time to create their own designs and patterns, too.
AND have awesome blogs.
What I have created, though, is quite a lengthy Wish List.
On Pinterest. On Craftsy. In my trusty little notebook.
On slips of paper that clutter the counter then get lost in the shuffle.
And still, I forget where I saw what.
My most recent wish list consists of several lengths of backing fabric.
I found a great source.
And it has a great name! One I won't forget!
I've recently done a little business with Christine
and it has been a delightful experience.
She advertises 100% customer satisfaction,
and she means it!
I hope you'll take the opportunity to visit BackSide Fabrics
and peruse her wares. She's having a sale right now,
as a matter of fact! Perhaps you'll find the perfect backing
for your next quilt like I did!
I'd share more from my wishlist,
if I could just remember....
In the meantime, I plug away at both my machines,
doing the best I can.
I'm pokey, no doubt about it.
(When I was in my 40's and tooling about with my dad,
he used to tell me that I'm the only person he knows
that's slower than his 80 year old mother!
It kind of blows my mind that I'm the same age now
that he was then!)
I wish I could sew like Jenny Doan
and never have to stop to square anything up,
and have everything seem to fit together perfectly.
I wish we could load a whole spool of thread into the bobbin casing
and never run out of bobbin thread.
This morning I'm building zebra ears.
Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts
designed the cutest zebra quilt.
THEN she posted a tutorial on how to make just one.
I made it and I was hooked.
I keep it next to me for reference.
Hmmm, takes a lot longer to make 16 zebras than to make one!
But, they are fun, fun, fun!
I'm working on a couple of other projects at the same time
as my zebra ears, but no pics, I'm afraid.
Hope you're working on something fun today, too.
Since today is all about wishing,
my wish for you is to have a wonderful day!
