A Bit of Bling

I was queing up at the fabric counter of a local shop the other day. I'd come with a list and carefully worked my way through it--mostly items for the Community Quilt Project I'm working on. Then I spotted this fabric on the counter. The lady in front of me in the queue had some good purpose for it. She was buying a certain amount, with a matching fabric and thread. As for me, I just wanted it because it was pretty and bright. I got 20cm worth for half the price of a cheap cup of coffee. Since then it's been hanging on the back of my chair. I've dreamed up a million things to do with it and have yet to try one. There'd better be more on that roll if I ever get my act together. Meanwhile just the thought is adding a bit of brightness to my life.

SNAP!! I took Gill to spotlight a few days ago and she insisted that I make her a dress out of that very material! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Hang on Ang--I didn't say I was going to wear it:) And yep, I think it was my "inner preschooler" who decided it way a must have!
