I am moving along on my scrappy project, and have almost half of the blocks done.
Have invented a new word while working on this project. Well, someone has probably used it before me, but anyways. I have decided to call this "de-stashing". You know how there is "de-cluttering"? Well, now there is de-stashing. Getting rid of the stash. Some years back there was a popular bumper sticker, "She who dies with the most fabric wins". Oh no, not me! I've decided I would like to have all my fabric used up and sewed into quilts before I die. (morbid way of thinking, isn't it?) Kind of like a quilter's way of "getting her affairs in order?? I'll tell you, the more "estate sales" I see on eBay, selling off quilt blocks that were never assembled into quilts, quilt tops that were labored over--many of them completely hand-pieced--and never quilted, fabric that someone collected but never used, the more I would like to make sure my stuff never ends up like that. I've already told the kids, after I'm gone I do NOT want to see my stuff up on eBay! I mean it!
Have a great weekend. We may be in for some snow here in Jerusalem. But you never know for sure.
