SNAP OUT OF IT!!!

I'm in some sort of funk! I think it's called overload. I can't decide which way to turn. I even tried climbing back in bed! It started with me making a pot of coffee and forgetting to put the pot on the coffee maker. If you would have told me I'd be cleaning under my sink today, I would have called you a big liar!! Funny thing is, it's all my own doing. I took the trip to Sew Ewe Quilt shop yesterday. The shop is looking good, they've expanded and have more fabric and have a nice little $5 a yard area. I only came home with two pieces of fabric and no GREEN!!! Actually I supervise a gal who is having her first grandchild. I want to make her a grandmother's quilt because her daughter won't let her purchase stuff for the baby unless she approves. Well, Mary loves turtles and mermaids. They make her so happy. It's nice to see Mary happy, Mary's 19 year old son was murdered about 6 years ago and she is still grieving. She breaks my heart. My hopes are that this grandchild will help her move on to a happier life. ANYHOO.... here's the pattern I want to make . Cute huh? The two pieces of fabric I picked up were for this, but now I need one more. Aww gee I gotta go fabric shopping again! Ok the blue will play the role of the white fabric and since this little one will be a girl, I'm hoping to find a nice clear pinky pastely floraly batik to play in the red role. I fell in love with this pretty blue it's Jelly Frost by Andover. It reminds me of sparkling water. Of course the back is going to be this Laurel Burch Mermaid Print. So now this is another project to occupy my poor little overloaded brain. You tell me, should I work on Pincushions? Still have 40 of those. What about Pumpkin blocks? I'm gonna need 36 of those and need to decide which fabrics to use. Maybe I should go looking for fabric or should I sit and applique on my Happy Hauntings? What ever I do, I need to get going, the day is wasting away!! added note: I'd better go buy a coffe pot so I can get something done tomorrow!!

Deep breath...some days it seems we'd be better off just staying in bed. The quilt for your friends grandbaby is going to be wonderful. Very special.

What a cute turtle pattern - 2 colour quilts always look so great and this one is no exception. What colours will you use?
