I am Swooning!

I have a short list of things I want to make in the near future.

* I have to finish a quilt for my 5 year old. The pieces are cut out and just waiting for me to put them together.

* I have nekkid walls in my bathroom. I have lots of nekkid walls in my house, in all reality. But the bathroom is painted and waiting for something to fancy it up. It is a small room, so a small wall hanging is in order. The walls are yellow, so I was thinking of something yellow and grey.

* Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I have two end tables that are also nekkid. I have a quick idea for them. I also want to make a little Valentiney wall hanging.

*My baby sister is having her second baby. This one is a girl. Out of my siblings and myself, there is only one boy. Our generation was heavy on the girls. We are all having lots of boys and only one other sister has managed to find the girl gene. Enter my baby sister who has one boy already. Now she is about to break the mold and have a girl of her own! I have picked out the fabric already.

I also have several patterns I am going back and forth on. The design on this fabric is pretty big, so I don’t want to cut it up too small or you loose it. I have the Living Large 2 book from Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures. I love the spanish tiles pattern.

I think that is what I’m going to do. But then I’ll have leftover from the bundle. (Maybe that is a good thing?)

If you noticed, I didn’t number anything. This is my idea of the order, but I am always adding new ideas in. These are just the ones I have specifically purchased the fabric for.

I have been seeing sew alongs all over blogland for years now. I’ve always wanted to participate, but I’m a little shy. When I read that I'm a Ginger Monkey was doing a Swoon Along, I thought I had to do it. I already had the pattern, and I’m sure I need more fabric, right? Why not add another thing to my short list?
