No photos today, sorry. Just snippets of my brain!

-I cheated on my fabric diet yesterday...but it doesn't count because it was just Kona White, it was less than two yards, it was 40% off with my Joann coupon. Solids don't count because I need them for projects.


-I have two dudes I want to make quilts for. One says he likes gray. The other will take anything I give him, I'm sure. Have any dude friendly pattern suggestions?

-I've been doing really good at the gym! I'm going every odd day and working my way through the Couch-to-5K running program. I'm up to 90 seconds running, two minutes walking intervals. Interval running is much better than just attempting to run, but let's face it, treadmills are boring.

-My head is full of acronyms. From work ones (PDI, UVI, RKE, LOF, ADP, CRM, and so forth) and now quilting ones, like HST and FQ! Sometimes I look at patterns and have no idea what they're talking about because of all the acronyms. The Swoon pattern's like that, so before I attempt to start it, I'm probably going to have to translate it into actual words!

Yeah, that's about it for today. What's rattling around your brain today?!


  1. The business of life can be such a drag. Wouldn't it be nice if we could sit and play with fabric all day.

    Jaybird designs has some great guy friendly quilt patterns.

  2. I actually have a book that my husband wanted me to buy one day when I coerced him into stopping at a quilt shop.. okay, twist my arm! ha It's called Quilts for Men. It has some good ones in it. I am with you with all of the acronyms. Before I started blogging, I didn't know what half of them meant!
