Now that I have my fabric organized I am taking all of my scraps and putting them into long strips by their color and value. My plan is to make one big-ass quilt by making small squares and placing them together in an order that will look like a burst of something. I'm not so sure if that makes sense but it is just the beginning. I believe this will be a winter project.

Every year before I begin a new school year I start to "freak out" and organize and clean anything I can get my hands on. This year I took my fabric and folded it by color instead of it being rolled up. I just love the way it looks and I feel better already. I guess... I thougth... I would share this with you.
My dear childhood friend Charlene cross stitched the birds and put them into frames. I'm guessing 20 years ago. (I have always had a fetish for birds) Over the years my tastes have changed and I did not know what to do with the birdies. Knowing that Charlene made them I knew they would be with me for life as anything home made and heart felt should. Right? So I made them the center piece of each pillow and they seem to be very happy with their new home. The blue gray quilt seems to be happy too. I know I am. Thanks Char!
