Paris in the Fall

Well, well, what have we here?  A picture of Paris in the Fall, of course.  It looks inviting, doesn't it?

I'm tired tonight.  Had a dental appointment after work, and before that I had a trip to the Mailboxes place to send those little jackets off to their rightful owners.  Got home too late to cook (or so I said) and we went on down to the Pub for a salad supper. 

Came home and started a third jacket, this time in size 3T, for Caroline, using some utterly scrumption\us periwinkle and aqua fabric that I bought yesterday.  Worked on it until I made a mistake; then I knew it was time to quit for the night.

So, Paris in the fall, eh?  A terrific picture, a lovely idea.


And what have we, here, she asked?  Why, it's Paris in the Fall again!  This spectacular BOM features French General fabric and is, obviously, sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop.  They posted a picture of it on Facebook over the weekend and I hemmed and hawed around, thinking that another BOM was just what I need -- not!

And then mentioned it to my friend Sherron who, clear thinker that she is, pointed out that this particular Paris in the Fall would be far less costly than a trip to Paris in the Fall. 

Now who could argue with such logic, such wisdom, such profundity?

Not me.  I signed up.

Oh Nancy, this is just what I need - a new quilt to take away the drama and exhaustion of the end of the year. Thanks for mentioning it!

I like the way you think! Can't wait to see the finished project for Caroline (those colors sound so yummy!). Do I hear you saying, down the road, "We'll always have Paris?"

Sounds like perfect logic to me!

Sherron is your designated enabler. Every quilter should have one.

As Oscar Wilde said, "I can resist anything except temptation." Often, I concur.

Gotta love quilter logic! I'm going to enjoy watching you make this one.
