So I'm sure you're thinking, "next up, now that Door County Cherry Baskets is done I'm sure Thelma's starting on Birdseye, that quilt she's been wanting to make for over a year, that quilt she's been collecting fat quarters for, that quilt she's wanting to make in the fall, because she likes to work with fall colors in the fall, that quilt with the bazillion pieces that she needs to get a jump on so she can meet her arbitrary deadline of November 30th plus squeeze in Thanksgiving, yessiree, I bet that Thelma's all over that Birdseye project".
Well that was the plan, and you know I'm a girl who loves a good plan, but somewhere along the way, as I was doing my normal end of project cleanup, this little bundle kept catching my eye.
I don't know if it was the three days of gloomy weather or my hormones, but I got a powerful itch to do something with that bright happy fabric. Beautiful fall foliage staring back at me from every window in this house, pumpkins setting on the porch, but I just wasn't ready to succumb to fall.
and this pattern in my brain after several folks left comments that Swoon was their favorite pattern, I told Birdseye she would have to wait, not long, just a couple of days.
My daughter asked me awhile back if I would make a wallhanging for her office, I think this fabric, Nine Dots by Carrie Nelson for Henry Glass and that pattern, Swoon by Thimble Blossoms are the perfect combination and will make a nice little work of art for a California girl. I'm giving myself three days to come up with a baby Swoon for my baby's office.
So while you're enjoying your fall weekend, I plan to be pretending it's summer! (Plus the time changes this weekend, an extra hour, just what I need!)
