Market Finds

The batteries were the problem with the camera.  So today with a functioning camera I was able to take some pics of my goodies from spring market.

The first one is a baby quilt from here.  I can’t wait to get started on this one.  You might be able to find these pretty kits at a quilt shop near you.

The second photo has the rest of the fabric goodies I picked up.  In the lower left are a couple of CANDY BARS from Moda.  Next are 3 charm packs, one is a Darlene Zimmerman PAPER DOLLS  and the other 2 are Kona bright palette.  Then is a 3″ square stack of freebies from Robert Kaufman.  The roll up is from Darlene Zimmerman’s new  BETTY DEAR collection.  Finally a MOD KITCHEN fat quarter bundle. 

My brain is swirling with ideas for what to do with all the goodies in the second picture.  I will be taking my design pad with to the bed I use to elevate my leg for 4 hours a day and use that time to do some design work.

While at market I also picked up some bamboo batting large enough to make a doll quilt.  I will be testing that and reviewing my results, so stay tuned.

Happy Sunday all!

Recharging The Batteries

So yesterday I attending the international spring quilt market.  I took a guest along.  It managed to recharge my quilting batteries.  So many ideas and such great fabric to see and NO PICTURES.  I tried to take a pic yesterday morning and the camera didn’t work.  AAAUUUUGH!!!!  So I am recharging those batteries to see if that was the issue.

My blog follower know I have been having trouble with my leg.  2 1/2 years and it still is not healed.  This is what it looked like last week when the camera was working.


The inside of the leg has healed but it always purple-red.

The doctor wants me to elevate my leg 4 hours a day and I must have it wrapped with an ace bandage or compression stocking during the day.  The wrapping part isn’t a problem.   Getting 4 hours of elevation time is.    Well it is elevation time and I will be using that time to work on some quilt design stuff.  So I am off to follow doctors orders.
