I assured the man I would use the fabric to make things of beauty and love that would bless people, particularly children. My plan is to make things for my baby niece, and also doll quilts (7 this year, for starters) for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
After paying my $75 for this motherlode of happiness, I came home and immediately sorted it by color. The line of an old hymn sprang from my voice: "Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee..." I'm sure my grandmother, who used to make dolls and quilts, would sing that while she sewed.
Blue with red hearts Fabric-- I made little treat bags for 26 first graders and their wonderful teacher and her co-worker and of course, for my Valentine birthday boy.
My younger sister loves grey wolves; I think I'll make a pillow for her. Of course I'll turn it rightside up.
Duckies and butterflies, how cute!
This fabric excites me--so much movement!
Of course the sunflowers always make me think of my Kansas friends and family.
My mind is spinning with project ideas. If only life didn't get in the way of sewing all day!
But at least my soul is singing just thinking about it!
