Cats out of the bag

I’ve been keeping a secret project secret and now it’s not a secret.  This morning didn’t work out so well and between my mom and my dad – now the recipients know and I’m mad about it.  😦  Oh well, c’est la vie and life has to go on.  But I’m still mad… trying not to be… but I am. /sigh
On a lighter note – I was reading one of the blogs this morning  – Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid – and Bonnie Hunter’s 2013 Mystery Quilt is starting in November 29, 2013.  It’s called Celtic Solstice Mystery.  Her introduction post with the colors and yardage and information is up on her web so if you are interested, click on the mascot, Paddy, below.  I still have it in my head to get Easy Street quilted and finished before this one starts so even though I’m laying low on that project right now, that is still at the top of my head.  I’m super excited about the new mystery quilt!  It’s a little strange that I am since I didn’t enjoy making Easy Street but I enjoyed the latter part of the quilt making process.  So now I’m excited about it!  I’m not so excited about the colors but I’m excited about starting something new with a group of online community quilters.  I enjoy seeing how everyone’s come together and how similar and dissimilar our projects all look as they are getting done.

So – it’s time to go to the quilt shop!  I decided to take the Long Arm Certification Class today.  I also have to get fabric for binding Secret Project that isn’t so Secret and maybe get something for the Celtic Solstice project.   The daughter of mine is getting into making her own hair stuff.  So far they’ve been different kinds of bows. She will be coming with me so she can go through and get fabric.  I’ve opened up my stash to her for her project.  I cringe when I see her cut into my beautiful fabric for her hair stuff but – who else is going to use it?  I do not have specific plans for them other than to look and pet and sigh at how pretty they all are.  So I’m holding myself back from taking it from her. 🙂 She is really enjoying herself.  In the end – I’m happy she is enjoying fabric as much as I do – if for a different kind of project than mine. 🙂  I really should count the fabric and add it to my stash report.  LOL!
