Silly me

After a couple of days of getting re-oriented to my "other life" here in CA, I finally found my way to the sewing machine on Saturday and Sunday.  No matter that I have lots of quilt tops that need to be put on their backs and finished, and no matter that I have a list as long as my arm of new quilts I'm anxious to make, I found myself drawn to that pile of Rocky and Bullwinkle fabrics.  By the end of yesterday afternoon, I had four finished place mats ready for us to use here on our little red table.  I know...I'm weird; but I loved The Rocky and Bullwinkle show and they will make me smile to see them in my little kitchen.

What's next?  Last trip out, I fell prey to a stack of Maxine fabrics.  I laughed so hard when I saw them and then after I brought them home, wondered what in the heck I was ever going to do with them.  Well...I have decided a lap sized quilt for a friend who is having surgery soon.  I have also decided that Maxine would not be offended if I don't use a specific pattern or precision cuts...so I'm off now, scissors and fabrics in hand, to see where she takes me.

Hope you have a good week!

PS  If any one of my readers has any idea if donation quilts would be welcomed for the tornado victims, and where to send them, I'd love to know.  Thanks.

I'm smiling thinking of Rocky and Bullwinkle! Love Maxine a lot! Those fabrics are totally fun!
What a nice thing to donate a quilt or quilts to those who have lost everything! I pray those families find strength to endure. I hope someone has info. too on where to send things.
Hugs!

You little sweetie. Leave it up to you to get the ball rolling on sending things for the tornado victims.
Love the Maxine fabric. I had an aunt......Aunt Alma.......who looked exactly like Maxine. Whenever I see Maxine's face, I just know, in my heart, this cartoon character was based on Alma's life. Same looks and same personality. Cracks me up!!!!
Hope you are enjoying CA......I sure do miss being there. xoxoxoxoxox
