Still not a lot of sewing going on around here. I made some quilted postcards that used about half a yard of fabric. I'll share pictures of them in a later post. I've also been working on some more pillowcases for charity. They use a good bit of fabric, but they're not done yet. I've got a quilt loaded on the frame, but at the last minute decided to use a different thread color and had to wait until I could get it. Oh, and I've also decided to spring clean my sewing room. That will take a good bit of time, but I'm really wanting to get rid of a bunch of stuff that I know I'll never use. Hopefully I can find good homes for all of it.
I did make it to the quilt store last Monday where I bought some stuff, but not as much as I expected. When I walked in the door, I thought I would be coming home with this fat quarter bundle...

Instead I picked up the fabric I needed for a few other projects. First, I bought 10 quarter yard cuts of some neutral backgrounds. I forgot to take a picture before I cut them up, but here they are in the bag with the rest of my purchases...

I picked up a couple half yards of fabric to audition for the pieced blocks in my Winter Wonderland quilt. I think they coordinate pretty well. I need to decide if I want to go scrappy or just use a few fabrics before I buy any more.

Purchased-to-date: 55.5 yards
Used-to-date: 38.5 yards

At least next week should see a bump in my used totals. But only if I finish the pillowcases I'm working on.
Mr. Quilting Bug snapped this picture of David in his desk chair this week. Doesn't it make you want to rub his belly?
