A little bit of quiet quilting in a crazy, busy life.

Well, I'm a ding-bat.
Well, I am almost done with the quilting of the signature quilt. So last night I went looking for the grape juice purple that I saved back for the binding. It wasn't where I put it, or so I thought.
Do you see it?
I do!!! No, I didn't think about it as I cut it out, or as I sewed it. I love purple, and I love little Haitian girls (I would bring one home to keep if I could). All I thought was how pretty a little dark skinned girl was going to look in that purple. Well, she will!!
One definition of sacrifice: "a giving up, destroying, permitting injury to, or forgoing of some valued thing for the sake of something of greater value or having a more pleasing claim."
Mine was inadvertent, at first. Now I can give it up wholeheartedly. Tomorrow I can laugh about it!! ;0) Today I have to go to Jo Ann's!!
These fabrics are interviewing for a position on my pinwheel quilt along. Sorry that the picture is so yellow, didn't realize it until now. (I edited it to be more like the true colors if you check out my photostream.) I think that the one to the left will be the binding. Going to order some kona for the background. Not telling what color! Okay, so I spilt the beans when posting the edited picture!
Package from FedEx came!! Yay!!! Not telling!!
Thinking about doing the purple charm chain letter, 'cause you know how I love purple. As I was looking for the binding fabric I realized that I really don't have much of it!! Before I sign up, is anyone else interested? I would need to send my squares to four others willing to do the chain! I don't want to sign up if no one else is interested. No pressure. (I love purple!)
