Thursday - an early start

An earlier start than I would have liked because of going down to the laboratory 
for a whole lot of blood tests following
my visit to the Rheumatologist yesterday - a downer was that
two of them had to be fasting so I was outside
the door as soon as they opened!

I haven't done a thing for a few days with quilts, grabbed a handful of
clean up fabric strips yesterday to make a cover for my birthday
iPad, turns out most of the strips were in the green range

quilted the lining and now need to trim to the size needed. I may not quilt the strips, 
I did flip and sew so they should be OK, I'll think about that
whilst writing this post.

Yesterday I found that I had quite a collection of yellow fabrics bought
maybe two years or so ago with the intention of making
a yellow diamond quilt - now I've changed my mind so I 
have heaps more yellows to add to my already considerable yellow stash.

I also bought around two and half yards for the border

so I will not need any more yellows!

Sorting out scraps is turning out to be a major I have just folded some of the ones I have 
used recently which were piled up on my table and
decided to keep them in one drawer just for Kaffe Collective scraps 

I would really like to begin on a quilt from the book by 
Sujata over at The Root Connection
but as having my eyes dilated is on the cards for around lunchtime and therefore not
being able to focus for a few hours after that the new start is out!

Off to make the most of the morning whilst I can still
see clearly - have a good week!

Oh hate that eye thing--relax and rest up--I like your yellow KF fabrics a lot Maureen. Hugs, Julierose

Oh golly, what a lot of test things all at once. I hope you're okay.

I am in deep yellow envy here. I love yellow in a quilt, never seem to have enough in my stash.

You have some gorgeous yellows to play with! Hoping for the best results and you'll be starting that quilt soon

Let's hope all your tests come back with good news.
Loving your yellows. That's a colour I lack a bit in my stash, and never seem to find yellows I love when I'm shopping.

Did your book finally arrive? Take care and you'll be stitching soon!

(those yellows are wonderful!!)

Best wishes for a good, quick recovery! I need to make an iPad cover, too. Yours looks pretty and useful.

I'm in the middle of a big scrap sort too. But I will be really impressed if you can get all of your Kaffe scraps into just one drawer!
