I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Hi Chicks.
Still feeling pretty bad about being such a lazy blogger. So many opportunities come along to provide fun topics to write about, but pure laziness keeps me from following through. I am ashamed.

Yesterday I went to Labor Of Love Yarn Shop in Romeo. Love that store. Very friendly owners & customers. Took a pattern with me that I purchased while in NYC, and found some Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino in a rather bright almost cornflower blue. I imagine it would look nice with a pair of jeans, a white T, and some silver jewelry. Hopefully the vision I have will actually become the sweater I intend it to be. I had no problem casting on, but by the third row I had already goofed it up and frogged it. Then I moped and pouted, and questioned WHY I felt I needed to be a knitter. But this yarn is yummy.....THAT is why I must knit!

Today Nancy, Faye and I traveled to South Lyon to one of our favorite quilt shops, Lake St. Mercantile. I never really got past the entrance of the store. I was immediately smitten with the Simpson & Minick line Flag Day Farm. I spent more than an hour sorting and arranging fabrics to make my version of a quilt in the Red Wagon book Every Seven Years.
There are several very good applique quilts in the Red Wagon book..........the cover quilt is a nice example.....
I need to go fondle my fabric.......so I'm outta here!

Yeah Sharon! Glad to see you've added to your blog. I am sure there are tons of things you could be updating us on, such as your beautiful yarn. That is going to be a great sweater. Again, I love your fabric choices and can't wait to see this quilt started. You sure do have good taste in fabrics.

The Spouse really likes the fabrics too! I knew he would!

I LOVE those fabrics. I want to know what pattern you decide on. As for the yarn, just keep plugging on. Even with the mistakes the feel of that yarn sliding through your fingers just soothes the soul.
