Glitter

Ok...I finally did it. I bought some Martha Stewart Living craft supplies at Walmart. It was the glitter that did me in. I eyed the end cap with all these goodies for several weeks...on Sunday...I took DD1 to return a duplicate gift and walking back to electronics....there they were and 50% off. So I did it, I bought Martha...I am still a bit giddy about the glitter...not sure what I will do with it....but it will be fun! This in one quilt I have been plugging away at....it's one Fig and Plum jelly roll...when I took the picture I didn't have all the blocks sewn, but they are now. I just hope I get it assembled and ready to be quilted by this weekend!


This "Lady Fingers" pattern I bought from the Fat Quarter Shop....

It's super easy...I really enjoyed making it...but it could have been the fabric too...I am smitten with this fabric line. I bought it on a whim for 50% off from the "Fat quarter Shop" of course and now..I LOVE it. Here are all the blocks that one layer cake makes. It will be 66X68 when finished, so lap size. Anyhow, today while I was at my local quilt shop....I was about to finish my purchasing (mettler thread, best press, a stitchery pattern, few fabrics) and I look down and at my feet....yardage of Urban Couture....Blue floral...gorgeous and perfect for the border and backing...and I bought a bit of red for the inner border. I thought I would have to order it online but I didn't!!! yeah yeah I was so happy about that. Now I am even a few days closer to getting this one complete.

Awesome! Yeah, pretty colors always do me in too. I would love to stockpile glitter and have Amelia create something with it but I KNOW it's going to end up all over my house so I have held back!

Have fun creating something the "Martha" way!

I was just eyeing the glitter at Walmart today but not for purchasing, just admiring how pretty it looked. I have no idea how I'd use it so I didn't buy any.
