 I have pulled the fabrics for a new project...I told you all that I would have to fill one of those empty containers before too long!  I haven't made an all ORANGE quilt so that is the color palette I am using this time around.  I was surprised to see that I had three, four or twelve different orange fabrics!  It's clear, I have a few fabrics, but look at it this way, I AM pulling from my stash and trying to use from there first before I make a purchase.  This time, I had plenty in my own stash!  It's a shocker, I know.

The quilt I have planned for these fabrics could be made in any color theme...I really just wanted to step outside of my comfort zone a bit and try something new!  It's a lot of fun!  This project is going to take shape quick, so check back soon to see how it progresses.

An EMPTY container...how can that be?  I have not only finished one but two projects that were in these containers.  Do you think I have an unnatural fondness for the "CONTAINERS" in my life?  You may be right...oh heck, let's face it, you are RIGHT!   Embrace your weaknesses, remember?  Do you find yourself wanting to be me when you grow up?  You know, like my sisters do?  OK, maybe not!

It may very well be a crime to let these containers sit empty...what would the container police say if they saw such an unbelievable sight?  My compulsive behavior would never let this happen, so I will fill them with two new projects, ASAP!

I'll call my sisters and ask if they have a cure for my strange fondness for the container...I am sure they will have plenty of advice for me.  Although, now that I think of it, their advice may not be printable!  

Let's move on to safer territory!

The purple quilt is finally finished!  I named this beauty CRAZY COINS, simply because it is off set and wonky.  Sometimes life just seems a little off and when I look at this quilt I feel "better" about my crazy day!  All those beautiful purple fabrics just make me smile and want to laugh out loud!  I love the way a quilt will make me feel a certain way and change my mood with a simple glance of it.  Try stepping outside your box and make a quilt or quilted project with something wild, crazy or just plain different from anything you might have made before.  Call it your "FUN" project and see if you don't smile just a little more!  I love what I do!

The purple blocks in this quilt project are not your normal "square" type of quilt blocks...one more way I am stepping outside the box! My sisters are saying, "Kathleen has her "own" kind of scary box"!  Oh, my favorite sisters have such a fond way of showing how much they want to be "ME" when they grow up.  It's ok girls...say it out loud!  

I needed 42 blocks to make the quilt I am planning, and each block only took 15 minutes each...it flew by.  I couldn't believe all these little units were stacking up so fast!  That container I organized to hold this project is going to be emptied out quick...stop by soon to see the outcome of this fun quilt!

Isn't she a beauty?  I bought this wonderful little singer featherweight about 5 years ago, but I wish I could tell everyone that it belonged to my grandmother and she sewed on it regularly.  But...NOT SO MUCH!  If either one of my grandmothers sewed on a Singer Featherweight it is unknown by me.  So, instead of telling people about the wonderful family link of my Singer Featherweight, I just say I got her on E-bay from a nice lady in NJ.  My husband, being the "attention to the detail" kind of guy that he is, buffed and shined this little gem to it's original grandeur.  If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you will see how great the detail is of  the gold work on the bed of the machine.  She sews like a dream, and weighs only 11 pounds.  I got the black case and the tray for the interior of the case also...all of it was in great shape, including the handle on the case.  Do you have one of these little beauties?

Once again, not a question for my sisters, who no doubt have no idea what a Singer Featherweight is!
