My New Love...Fat Quarters

I have discovered a new love in my life, fat quarters.  Fat Quarters are a collection of a fabric line with each individual fabric piece cut into "fat" quarters of a yard that usually measure around 18 by 21 inches.  They are generally used for quilting, but there are many books now dedicated to the different uses of fat quarters.

Just looking at some of these great collections makes my mouth water!  The one pictured below gets my creative juices flowing and I can imagine all sorts of wonderful things created with this fantastic collection.

This collection by Michele D'Amore was inspired by gorgeous handkerchiefs.

Week In Review 9-17-11

This has been a busy and difficult week for me. Despite the fact that I had an allergic reaction to some medication I was given by the doctor and forced to fight that for a couple of days,  I accomplished quite a bit!  I feel that any time I accomplish anything during the work week, outside of waking up and getting myself off to work, is really a great week. I am usually so tired when I get home I do little except sit or nap!

Dreaming of the Beach on Silent Sunday

It is only the second week of September, school has been in session for only a month and I am already dreaming of the beach!  It seems I never have enough time there.
I love Atlantic Beach, North Carolina.  It is an island in the outer banks of North Carolina and not only is it beautiful and peaceful, but it is also where my step-daughter and her family have a beach get-a-way and a deep sea fishing business.  It is all that and more!
