Adventures in Fabric Art

Just a little fabric in this week, just barely offset by what I used, but it was in the right direction and the math was easy.  I needed some fabrics for my landscape quilt, and the two on top were very much on sale.  And sprinkled with gold metallic spots.  Obviously, I had to buy them.

AND, I’ve embarked on a great destashing project:  the Scrapitude Mystery Quilt at Quilting for the Rest of Us.  There’s a Flickr group, and it’s being heavily discussed/shown on Twitter, #scrapitude.  It’s just starting, so join us.

 

This week:  +3.5 yards,  -4.5 yards (wall hangings)

YTD:  +123 yards,  -184.75 yards

Net stash used in 2013:  -61.75 yards

Instead of Yuri, whose main accomplishments are catching chipmunks to release in the house, and getting in the way of quilt photographs, I thought I’d show you my son today.  He is accomplished at many things, including playing trumpet in the Marching Thunder band at Marshall University, Huntington, WV, where he is a sophomore.  Yes, We Are Marshall, the movie.  They march about 300 instruments.

  1. Love the feathers on the helmet your son wears

  2. It’s a pleasure to see a picture of son. It’s quite a challenge and accomplishment to be part of such a big team!

  3. Love the marching band pictures of your son!

  4. Will he be at the VT game this weekend? It should be a good matchup. I hope to be watching it on TV but will be rooting for VT. Sorry!

    • Yes, he will be! They’re’ supposed to be doing a joint halftime show with the Hokie band. Hope they show some on TV. My DH will be there w VA relatives who are VT fans.
