Oh the joys of having new fabric and the sorrows of having to wash it all. I don't pre-wash everything, just the CW's. Dawn said she loves it. My back does NOT! Not the ironing, that's fine. I love to iron, but the pulling the pieces from the washer in a tangled mess, and having to lurch over the washer cutting the strings...not so much! These are the first piles for the wash. Believe me it's only half of the haul I got. Yes, I went back for another few things today. Never done that before, but the wool was calling me. I've never seen wool anywhere near my house and I simply had to have a few more pieces...oh, and some red and navy from the Liberty Homestead lady...and another bundle; pink and brown. And I forgot to check Marcie's quilt at my local Nancy's Quilt shop booth...and that last booth on the way to the door out that had tons of CW FQ's and Jo Morton ones in particular. I blame it on the bundle lady, she told me they were not making poison greens at the moment, so I grabbed every one I saw. Got some lovely ones.
This is the largest collection of CW fabrics I have seen in my house. Hubby even said he thought I had quite an extensive collection now. Larger even than most...HA!! SO I showed him Sharon's room, someone else's room, Bonnie Hunters room, etc, etc. I was promptly told to turn off the computer and get away from the screen. LOL!
So after all the shopping, I have piles. Piles to wash, fold and sort. I did the browns and greens already, but I decided to re-fold them to make the extra pile fit on the shelf. Plus I'm taking the same plan that Kathie employs and cutting some pieces out right up front to add to a pile. A triangle from each for a 1000Pyramids quilt, and a tumbler piece. Plus I have 4 sizes of squares for the antique scrap quilt that I showed in the magazine here. Plus grabbing a few pieces here and there for new blocks for the Diary Quilt. I'm a bit behind this week with my required 7, but I'll catch up. Now to kick a brown kitty out of my chair so I can re-fold a few fabrics before bed!
