Flowers, Flannel and Fabric

These lovely flowers greeted me mid-week from Mr. Anonymous. I like....them and him!

Six new flannels for more baby blankets. Pinks are so sweet~easy to find, dots much fun, blues hard to find! Two blue baby boy blankets are needed for two nephews having/had a boy. Coordinating two matching flannels is challenging most times, also.

Hopefully, I will be able to accomplish a bag with these Bohemian Manor fabrics by In The Beginning. I find making bags to be challenging also!
ALSO, I find purchasing fabric is stressful. So many options...what would be best??? much to get?...which for lining? which for backing? binding? Usually, I'm by myself and really want a college daughter's opinion, BUT she/they are off chasing their dreams and more! It's alright tho' because they'd be discontented hanging out at home for the rest of their lives, and I'd probably start to wonder what is wrong with them! I do miss them though. Speaking of chasing, college daughter #1 is getting married! May 9th!
Take Care.

I've been wanting to leave a comment with suggestions on what fabrics to use where, but I just can't tell without the fabric and pattern in front of me. Sorry. Cute though.

Sorry we missed you guys when you came to Arizona. We were really looking forward to it. Your slideshow of the beauty of Arizona does a great job of capturing some of the unique beauty of desert life. We love it here, that's for sure.

I like those fabrics. I think everything on this page is just lovely. Sometimes I find the night before I go to a quilt shop...I can't sleep. There is a lot to planning a project. I agree.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

YES....believe it or not, there is no flour in those cookies. The first time my sister made them, she freaked out at the "no flour" and called my mom at 12:30 at NIGHT....because she couldn't get ahold of me. . .to see if she had copied the recipe wrong. : )

I love your quilts. I love that you talk so much of Arizona. My in-laws live in Sierra Vista -- which is about an hour south of Tucson.

I can't wait to do some back-log reading on your blog. (And your story about blodging CRACKED me up!!)

Have a great day!!
