Fun in the Works

Remember the other day, I mentioned getting a bunch of cool new fabrics, and I couldn't wait to play with them?  No, of course you don't, because my readership has hit the floor as of late.  Wonder if that has anything to do with my not posting for months...  But I digress.

I did mention something about it.  And here are a few of them in raw uncut form.  Now what to do with it all?

Wine Print

Sparkly fairy print, although you can't see the sparkle...

Comic book food print

Very realistic looking watermelon.  This is actually 2 different fabrics, but I can't wait to put them together.

Vintage looking Alice in Wonderland.

War metals in black and white.

And this awesome print... You'll never guess what it made me think of?  It even has Queen chess pieces.  I wanted the whole bolt, but at 10 bucks a yard, I settled for 2 yards.  Don't tell Sexy papa.

Did you guys know that BOLO means Be On the Look Out?  Yeah, you probably knew that.

So here are some things that any like minded people should be looking forward to:

June 5th: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner will be released.  Stephanie Meyer will be posting the book to read for free on her website.  It will also be released in print on the same day.  $1 of every book sold will go to the American Red Cross.  You can get more info here.  Bree Tanner News.
I will be attending a release party for this... I know your all thinking 'of course she will'  Yeah well, what can I say!  I will be taking along some freebies for my fellow Twilight Junkies!

June 22nd: The next installment of the numbers novels from writer Janet Evanovich will be released.  I know you find it hard to believe that I could be obsessed with anything other than the Twilight series.  Actually, I will have you know, Janet Evanovich was my first book obsession.  My husband knows that it is his duty to secure a copy and keep the kids out of my hair the day it is released!  You can read the beginning of it here.  Sizzling Sixteen.

June 30th:  Do I even have to say it?  Probably not.  But I will say, I have had my tickets since the day they went on pre-sale!  Another nod to the Sexy Papa!  Yes, I will be at the midnight opening on a Wed night!  I may have some freebies for this one too.  We'll have to see how it goes.

Give Me a Break...

...I've been busy.  No, literally.  I have been up to my elbows in things that need to be done... And things that make me happy.

There is news about my nephew, Little Brian.  I'll get into that another day... when it's sunny out and I am less likely to fall into a depression over it.  Last time I had to deal with any of it, I spent the rest of the day in bed, all but moaning.

So here is a quick run down.
I got a silver Volvo.  Not a new shiny one like a certain Cullen.  More like a '99, 4 door, been scraped in 3 of 4 corners, speedometer doesn't work, kinda Volvo.  But the price was right, and it meant I could work during the day while the kids were at school.  No sooner than I started working weekdays, did the thing develop a transmission problem and end up in the shop for 2 weeks.  Urg.

I have taken a break from reading Twilight books.  I am still clearly obsessed.  But I can't get anything done with a book in my face.  So what did I do?  I started making Twilight inspired things.  Sad I know...




And Jewelry...




Which lead to other, non Twilight related, jewelry.  But  I haven't had time to photograph those.  Did I mention I've been busy?

I have sold a couple of my Twilight items.  Yay me!  And I will be participating in the 30 Days of Eclipse extravaganza.  I will also be sending her a bag to review.  So if your wondering about the quality, and why they cost so much, you can get your answers over there.

I just finished a twin size rag quilt.  I really thought I was done with those.  I donated all of my finished baby quilts to the children's hospital.  This one was a bear.  But it's done... so now I get to play with all the fabric I found at this little place called Fabric Hut.  I know, I work for Joann's but Fabric Hut has stuff we don't carry.  Like Micheal Miller.  Wait until you see all these great prints I found.

OK I must to go to the grocery store before I have to be at work.  So I will catch up with you guys later.  Have a great day!
