Anyone else out there have trouble at the library?

I was going to post some pictures of my UFOs..... but then I made a quick trip to the library. Quick!! Ha ha. I'm like a kid in a candy shop when I go to the library. First I went to the new fiction shelves up front and found a few books that looked good. (mind you, I just got 5 different books for Christmas) Then I hit the non-fiction aisles. First some photo blogging books for my daughter, the photography major, then the quilting section. I grabbed a few Kaffe Fassett books just because I like to look at the purty pictures. Then a Denise Schmidt quilt book. I love her style. Then I found this book!!!! If you can't read the small print, it says, "Small art quilts created with paper, plastic, fiber, and surface design." Let me give you a hint... my husband just went to the grocery store and I told him that if he saw any sushi packaged with the fake plastic grass, to buy it! Yep, I'm in search of 'sushi grass'. And you know that plastic mesh over the top of those cute little clementine crates, I could use some of that too. I have wanted to make another little quilt for the Alzheimer's Initiative, and this book just gave me the push I needed. Ooooh yeah! I'm gonna get out some paints, crayons, crazy threads and yarns, maps, newsprint, and all kinds of 'whatnot' and have me some artsy fun. And don't go nagging me about UFOs, I have ALL year ahead of me!


  1. don't forget about onion bags, easter grass, and cellophane wrap......looking forward to seeing what you make!

  2. You go girl! I'm especially thrilled that the AAQI might be the lucky recipient of your efforts!

    Many thanks,

  3. I am laughing so hard at the sushi grass! It's a pity I can't stand sushi or I'd save my grass and send it to you!!
