nearly 2 years ago, i enjoyed my first trip to lancaster for fabric shopping. i came home with 11.5 yards of fabric, mostly solids, in a very cramped suitcase. now i'm delighted to say this is just about all that's left. there are some scraps and a few pieces under a FQ size but the majority has been used up as of today. from the charcoal i cut pieces for an ocean waves quilt in progress. using the charcoal is a world of difference choice than black, much easier on the eyes. there is a spool of charcoal aurifil quilting thread just waiting for this quilt, too. **** with a week of showers looming for just about every day, it'll be great sewing time. that new bottle of sunscreen is just going to have to wait a bit until mr. sun returns.
