The order from Fire Mountain Gems came yesterday. This is what $90 in beads looks like. Some of these will be for my "Tsunami Ripples" quilt. I'm looking forward to the end result but not the hours and hours of beading.
I couldn't seem to get out of the gloom of the last few days, brought on by myself, so I spent time going through my fabric stash and really weeding out what I didn't think I would every use. I cut anything less than a fat quarter into 5 inch and 3 1/2 inch squares but then decided that I probably won't do anything with them so I packed them up to give to two of my guilds for door prizes. Somebody else might as well use them. I also have a huge bag of fabric I am bring to my sweet Needle Divas tomorrow. I hope some of them will want some of it. I'll just keep bringing it around till it is all gone. Who doesn't like free fabric?
