Can I go back to bed now?

That's how I woke up feeling. My head was throbbing, legs aching and I really wanted to just stay in bed. It was a struggle to go down the stairs. For once I have a proper cold.
Mind you I didn't allow it to totally ruin my day. I did some ironing and scrap sorting for some swap items.  So I busted out my EPP gear and whipped up some samples.

For the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap I pulled out these to make a pincushion then the fabrics below with a few solids, will possibly be sent her way

For the RATZ swap I picked out these prints, along with some linen to make a name tag for my secret partner

I'm going to make another quilt for myself. This one will be much larger than the MAM quilt and use my hoarded stash of Echo prints. I'm still missing 4 or 3 perhaps? No matter. I love the Madrona Road prints so they will be mixed in as the warm colour tone as the Echo prints are in a cold colourway. I picked out a few other prints to match up to some of the other colours. I also pulled a few solids to go with them too.

 I've decided finally after sketching out so many ideas, with some epic math fail

to go with the obvious! SIMPLE PATCHWORK!! Shows off the prints and doesn't take a year to complete! I may however do a pieced back with some of the blocks I love! Just have to decide what size I want the squares to be....

Then I trimmed down the scrappy log cabin blocks (and spent some time taking off all the paper!!), cut some wadding and just have to pick out some zippers.

Siya'll tomorrow =D
