Donnie and Troy came over tonight and it was pretty fun times. Donnie brought over his fabrics he got over the week, oh boy was there a ton! We sorted out the ton of cut squares he had (9 big bags!) and laid them out over my bed. DANG! that was pretty impressive! I think he has watercolor quilt in mind...but I am guessing he will need to see what other fabrics he has. Troy and Eric were talking computers or programming or something almost the whole time, but I dragged Eric in to see what a whole load of fabric on the bed looked like. He was in awe.
I had made 3 bags, one for me for cosmetics to hang in the bathroom, a drum stick holder bag for Eric, because they were EVERYWHERE (...and getting chewed by Jazz), and a school bag for Noel. Here they are. I found the fabrics all at Joanns. I wish there had been more of the squirrel flannel fabric (they were all made with flannel and lined with fleece.) I need to find a good pattern for a tote, there are several people I want to make bags for, but don't want the insides to fray. I will be posting it once I find a good one.
Also, I have started making real progress on the friendship wall hanging I started. I will post the progression later, too.
And just for posterity, here is a picture of my tiny wee quilting area:
