Welcome to another Toss it on the Floor Tuesday. Ok, so it was ALMOST turned into Toss it out the Window Wednesday..... Why you ask? Well, I revisited an old project. Apparently, there is this thing called a pattern and it has directions. You really need to READ the directions and not make up your own from the pictures. Somehow, I thought that I needed this brown fabric for the inner border. Now keep in mind, this is a quilt kit.

Brownie's picture is the profile too. She is sporting her pin cup party hat. Those little Dixie cups come in handy for pins and of course, for M&Ms too. I've learned not to mix up the cups though. Yikes!
Would you like to see a few of the quilts I've made? Of course you do!
One thing that I've learned about blogging so far, besides the fact that I am not a photographer (but my oldest daughter is, thanks J), is to write down ideas for posts as they pop into your head. I have a few posts/ideas saved as drafts in Blogger. If I don't get my ideas logged, they end up lost somewhere in my head. It reminds me of going to the grocery store without a list, you know how that goes!
My favorite thing that I've learned with quilting is to press seams open instead of to one side. I love how flat it lays.
Some fun things you may or may not WANT to know about:
I love cutting up fresh veggies. It clears my mind and as a bonus, it's healthy.
I'm a weather geek. I absolutely love blizzards and of course thundersnow :)
I actually have a favorite book, and I am not a reader. I loved Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Book Store.
I'm not a big movie fan, does Rudolph count? I am a huge Rudolph fan. Is it Hermie or Herbie? Don't get me going on that!
I'd love to know what type of music you listen to while you sew. Perhaps you listen to audio books? I actually enjoy rap and hip hop, especially old school. Anyone that know me thinks this is quite hysterical since my personality doesn't match this at all! They have even quizzed me about songs and artists just to make sure!
Thanks for stopping by! We hope to see you again! Please visit the other bloggers in my hive!
