In the last 48 hours a whole lot of hoopla has been going on. My husband is in Japan and got a severe foot infection....he's in the hospital there, on I.V. antibiotics. I was about to have a break down but then my mother in law is here to help out for a week. That takes a load off. When I picked her up from the airport we had an hour or so available. And trying to focus on the positive and not get any more upset we decided to stop at a quilt shop that was new to both of us. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera. My MIL is a quilter too. Anyhow, the shop was called Angelics. They had 30's, civil war, batiks and Kaffe...LOTS of Kaffe. Now I have lots of fabric but I only had 6 fat quarters of Kaffe. His fabrics always appealed to me but then I never knew what to do with them...until....the Jelly Rolls book. There are 2 quilts in that book using Kaffe and I love them both. They are super easy...using 2.5 inch strips. Have you tried to find a jelly roll of Kaffe? It's not easy. So I bought 1/4 yards of 40 prints and a few solids. Yesterday, my MIL and I cut and sewed. Well, I cut the Kaffe for her and I, and she sewed. Then late after the girls were sleeping we both sewed. I finished borders for one quilt, continued with 3 other WIPS. I have not started sewing the Kaffe quilt yet....but perhaps tonight?? I am trying to get some of my bed quilts ready to go to the quilter. That will bust some stash eh! woohoo....
Now back to my husband, he's getting better ....but we don't know when he will be released. In the mean time...I am sewing to keep my mind off things. Oh and baking with the girls too...DD1 decorated the cupcakes. They are yummy.
