New Fabrics for new quilt--still designing!

“Die when I may, I want it said by those who knew me best that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.”

 New fabrics for my new quilt....I am still designing....but I DO LOVE these fabrics!!!!
This book is so good...I started it last night right before bed...and went to bed too late because of it!  She also wrote Still Alice...which I have not read but will as soon as I am done with this one!

Done with the top of "Mosaic Squares"!

Not good pictures...just laying on the top of my table and I couldn't get at a good angle..and its actually not even the right will hang vertically not horizontally as, the sunshine is coming in on it....but it is done!  Not the quilting...just the top.  I love how it turned out.  I will take another picture of it hanging on the wall when its all done.  This was really fun... a lesson in imperfection and not worrying about it.  Stripes were intentionally not cut perfect and do not lie even on the small pieces..thus causing your eye to move quite a causes movement.  Each square is a different size and not even perfectly rectangle or square at all.... I didnt even measure the placement of each larger square..I just eyeballed so it didnt bother me...but again, intentionally did not want anything perfect.  I would recommend everyone try doing this type of thing every once in awhile to let loose! :)
 Just finished this book and it is very very very good...I highly recommend it!
This is on the top of my list of things I would love to buy.....(someday before it is not available any more) of those things no one NEEDS but I sure do want!  It is from Signals catalog.  It just makes me happy.  Sigh....
 This is one of my smartest and best purchases that came in the mail today!  Used prescription glasses frames.  I got them on for 12.00!!! (Plus shipping).  I broke the only pair I had and haven't been able to afford new glasses as they are, as many of you know, very expensive.  These are really nice frames.  I am just going to have them pop these lenses out and put my prescription in! (Whoever had these was blind as a bat and I cant even see what I look like with them on its such a blur :)) A savings of hundreds I am sure!  yea for me!
