First up is a little fun pack of fabrics Mom and I won from her quilt group! (Everyone who finished this one project had their name put in a hat and Mom's name was drawn!!!) I was so excited when it arrived in the mail! Here's a little collage of me checking it out:
Guide Dog for the Color Blind at work
It's patriotic fabric in a cool draw-string bag made from another patriotic fabric. It has one of my favorite sayings on it - "God Bless America"! I just love it - and so does Mom! We ♥ patriotic fabric!!!
Next, we got in a pretty substantial order from our friends at the Fat Quarter Shop! They had an insane offer of 40% off the 1895 Batiks. Mom and I have a weakness for batiks. Have a look at these babies:
Here's a closer look:
Mom said that the bigger stack is called "Shaved Ice" and the other one is "Ocean".
"Did you say 'Shaved Ice'?!?"
Zim heard Mom say "ocean" and had to check it out:
"Hey! It's like the colors of the Kansas Ocean... isn't it, Dave?"
Well, not reeeeeeeeally... but it made Mom think about other oceans she's been to. I think she should make a quilt for her and Zimmie to share with some of those fabrics. That would be pretty cool. Speaking of cool... this "Shaved Ice" pack?
"This one's MINE!"
OH, yeah! I can see something for ME out of this! Although ... I think we should do something for Ammy, too - she's REALLY into ice! ... And Stormy would look really cool lounging on a blue quilt ... and come to think of it, Zim epitomizes cool... so ... maybe we should all share the "Shaved Ice" pack!
I wonder if we could combine "Shaved Ice" with the "Ocean" ... or would that cause some freezing issues? Then Mom throws other stuff into the mix (click here) ... and asks what I think. Woo. This Guide Dog for the Color Blind stuff is hard work!!! I think I need some shaved ice and a trip to the Kansas Ocean ...
