Quilt With Me

My sister is leaving for college in less than a month.
So starting this coming monday, I am working on her quilt.
And her's alone.
Join me on this journey.
I'm going to do a little posting journal about how I do it.
From start to finish.
And tomorrow I am going to finish getting the fabric.
We have most of it.
Need a little more.
Hold on tight,
Here we go!

Rut

I spent 2 weeks at a children's camp.
With my three kids.
Without my husband.
Nursing a bajillion other people's kid's injuries.
And tummy aches.
And bug bites.

Then I was home for less than 24 hrs,
got my hair done,
deposited my children at various loving people's homes,
and went to a wedding.
With my husband.

And there was a tornado.
Right. At. The. Reception.
So there was no....
guess,
c'mon now, you know this...
Electric! Right!

But the reception was nice anyways.
Albeit candle-lit, completely.
And I had to pee in the dark.
Cause the lights in the bathroom weren't on.
Obviously.

And we came home.
On the way home we saw:
Little calf houses strewn accross the highway.
Pieces of roof hanging from trees.
Like bad decorations.
And a bajillion trees uprooted, broken off, and other wise destroyed.
That's right.
A BAJILLION!

And now,
I'm in a funk.
A Rut.
Got my cranky pants on.
And forgot to change them.
Don't want to clean.
Don't want to sew.
Don't want to bother uploading pictures to this post.
That picture one - that's mainly because I didn't take any pictures at camp.
Not a single one.
Or at the wedding.
You can however, look up a video for yourselves on youtube.
Of the tornado.
I am relatively sure that there is only one of the actual tornado.
And it was taken from the parking lot of where we were for the reception.
Try searching: Tornado in Mayville, NY, or Tornado on Chataqua Lake.

That's all I got folks.
There's more to these stories, but for another day.
And photos. Of no cookies.
Don't even get me started on that.

and my coffee grinder is still at camp.
so i have had no coffee.
since the 22nd.

*Rant over.*

Now send me good types of tea you drink.
Or whatever you do to get out of a rut.

I need some of all of it....

I don't have extra money to spend this week/month/until further notice.
I'm trying to "beef up" our savings.
So, in my free moment online...
I looked at the "Coming Soon" section of the Fat Quarter Shop.
(Reasoning: if it's not available yet, I can't buy it...)
Seriously?
Really!?
I need some of ALL of it!
It is all looking awesome!
So, once I'm done beefing up the savings,
I'll take some money out, and buy fabric.
Maybe enough to get that free shipping.
Did you see how much you need to spend to get that free shipping?!
I've never spent that much at once on fabric.
But I just may.
Next May.
Maybe.

Sorry, I digress...
Well, I hope that link leads you to looking forward to all the goodies coming out!
All the dots!
All the cute plaids!
The argyle!
Oh my!

Off to sew to make room for incoming fabric!
