I backed it with cotton flannel, no batting, machine tacked at the intersections. Warmth without weight. I'd say it's the most elegant car blanket I own.

The distance was short. Do I brake and risk fishtailing? Do I hit the animal?! *shudder* In that nano second of indecision I saw it was a River Otter. What?!
I veered right as he looked up, paused and bumbled along back the way he came. *whew*

During the year I put all my quilt related receipts in one place. Then I total them in January to see how much my quilt habit is costing me. It's also something of a reflection for me. The year I worked at a fabric store you'd think the total would've been sky high when in fact it was half what the year before had been. I guess having the whole quilt department to touch and admire kept me from having to own it.
2007: $147.18. I mostly bought thread, rotary blades, and fabrics to finish WIPs
Yesterday I made my first purchase of 2008, and with the 40% off one item coupon I got out of there for $23.54.
I have tubs and tubs of fabric, been collecting quilting cotton for 22 years. I don't need much and I figure - You can't take a U-Haul to heaven. :D

Aren't theme parties great?!
We were home and in bed by 11 pm, but it was fun to get out for a bit. Then the neighbors woke us up with Roman candles, fireworks and firecrackers. That was only slightly better than the chainsaws and shotguns of last year! At first I woke up thinking - what in the world?! Then I remembered, rolled over and went back to sleep.
Here's to a safe and sane new year!

Finishing these two UFO's would be a *great* start to 2008!
