I don't know why it is, but I always seem to want to organize stuff when I'm sick. I am feeling a lot better today, BTW! Last night, though, all I wanted to do was make something look neater and be more user-friendly than it was!
So, I organized my cardstock! I have a LOT more cardstock than I thought I did! It's all from Stampin'Up! (I used to be a demonstrator, so most of my stuff is from them), so I organized it by the color families they have in their catalog. It's all in here, too, so I know I don't have packages of cardstock floating around the house, waiting for me to find it AFTER I order a new package (which is why I have 4 packages of hunter green cardstock...). I think it looks pretty all together like that!
Then today I pulled from ye old stash (and took a short trip to Quilt In Joy...) to put together this!!
I am going to try making a "wonky" or "improv" quilt... I think the time has come to break my "every seam must match or else it goes in the lit fireplace" attitude! I was also inspired by a post on quiltsalott's blog, and I think I am going to hand quilt it using a "big stitch" technique. Won't that be liberating? Taking all of my perfectionist tendencies and throwing them right out the door at once? I am looking forward to making this quilt!
We are supposed to get socked with snow again tonight and tomorrow- they said 6-10", with the bigger accumulations closer to the Wisconsin border... which usually means me, since my house is only about 15 miles from the border! Oh, well. I am glad it's hitting on a weekend this time- that means Hubby doesn't have to go out in it to get to work!
I am trying a new/old recipe tonight for dinner... it's lasagna, but it's cooked all day in a crockpot! I want to use my crockpot more. It's so nice to just throw stuff in and let it cook all day!
