Wonderful Wanda's Wares

Wanda was cutting and selling some of her batiks. I told her I was interested in browns/neutrals and she said how about some rust and I said why not and today this glorious package was waiting for me when I got home from school. I fondled them for quite a while before making dinner (ravioli and salad; that goodness for Whole Foods on days like this), and fondled them some more after dinner.

I know exactly what I am going to do with them. The thing is, though, I can't start it yet. Too many irons in the fire. Have to tie that Jewel Box giftie, finish the hand quilting on the current baby quilt, make the bag for the bloGIVErsary, finish the alternate blocks for Emancipation Proclamation, see what's going on with the Sister's Choice blocks that got banished to make room for something else, bind Porcelainberry, and so forth. So I'll leave Wanda's wonders within fondling distance until I can deal with them.

Hey, guess what? This is my 700th post! Surely this calls for another give-away. But not yet. Stay tuned for the announcement. Within a few days. Really.

Okay, back to hand quilting.

Nancy - don't stress about the bag - I'll happily wait if you want to stroke those gorgeous batiks a while longer :o)

Many irons in the fire. Gosh I have to wake up before I start doing this.

Wow. 700th post! THAT is impressive. Congratulations!

I understand about too many irons in the fire but I just can't help myself. I half to start something else!

Making that list must feel a bit overwhelming! Sometimes what's in the present is soooo hard to resist!

Here's hoping your irons get done soon so you can start on a new project :)
