THIS CONFIRMS IT........I AM ONE CARD SHORT OF A DECK

Yesterday I was trying to sort my Christmas fabrics before leaving. I had about 45 minutes before I had to be somewhere. While sorting I came across this fabric......

All of a sudden I broke out in a cold sweat, the light bulb above my head was going off. I grabbed this fabric and went to town.


I started doing pleats.....and more pleats...watching the clock the whole time.


Shaking my head and thinking....Gal you have got to be nutzzzzzz. You have no business starting all of these towels. did that stop me? NO!!!

You can't see the wings on this one but after it is stitched it will be fine. I took the image off a few of these fabrics for the applique on the towels.

What possessed me? Why couldn't I stop. The whole time I was gone all I wanted to do was get back and finish the pleats and start what I had invisioned in my head,

When I got home....fabric started flying, glue sticks were being used up.

And so now..... everything is put away and all that is left is to stitch these down. The night is still young...

I don't know what came over me.....lost my senses I guess....

But oh....what fun!!!
