Wednesday Epherma and a little quilt nonsense.

So I'm going to start a new installment (well, try anyway). On occasional Wednesdays, I'm going to post an image of some type of old paper product, be it wrapping paper, magazine pages, book pages, etc. I don't have any idea how old most of the stuff is, so we'll say vintage/retro/beenaroundforawhile. And you can copy it for personal use.

Today's epherma - a sweet wrapping paper I found at my Grandma's house.


In other news, did you know that the muscles you use to operate a rotary cutter are between your shoulder blades, right below your neck? I brought back what was left of my Grandma's fabric stash after all my aunts went through it and have been cutting everything into 4" strips to make some simple lap-sized strip quilts. I might have 30 of them by the time I'm done. I think I'll take a break to get my friend Kimberly's baby quilt done, but after that, all other projects are on hold until I get the tops put together.

Hopefully I'll have them completed by August. That's the next massive family get-together we're having and it lasts a whole week, so I'm going to enlist some of my aunts and cousins to help tie them off. I know, I know, but seriously - do you think I'm crazy enough to hand quilt ALL OF THOSE?!?

No more projects until August? Does that mean no Easter dresses???

Well, other than the girls' Easter dresses, of course!

Phew! I was going to panic!

Well, not really, because I guess I could always just go BUY them Easter dresses, but what's the fun in that?

Speaking of which, we should go pick out fabric soon! I'm probably going to need excuses to get the girls out of the house anyway, so Greg can fix it up.
