Back to Sewing...

I've decided to get back to my quilting.  Almost all of the fabric that i already have for my scappy 9-patches has been washed / dried.  But not ironed.  I took some pictures of them today.

Here are some of the solids.

Here are some of the small prints.  These i can put with solids and use as prints or put with large prints and use as solids.

And here are some of the large prints.  I know these look really mis-matched but i guess that's the point of "scrappy". 

After i get the rest washed, i'll put more pictures up.  Then i can start ironing and cutting and matching.  I've already got some idea of which prints will go with which solids and such.  My biggest problem is that most of these fabrics have flowers & butterflies so i will definately need to get some boy fabrics.  Good thing we have more girls than boys in the family.

*on a side note:  Emotionally, things haven't been too bad.  I just really hate when i see something i know she would like, see something funny online or hear some juicy gossip and i have to remind myself that she's not here to share it with me.
