goings on.

in an effort to speed up my bedroom quilt project, i have decided against going with the original pattern i wanted to use (stacked coins), and have decided to do a simple large patchwork design. it may not be as time consuming or interesting in design, but i think the fabrics i have chosen will really speak for themselves, and lend themselves well pattern-wise to large blocks! so. i am buckling down, and starting to cut out the pieces tonight while i watch Fringe <3

i've also decided to (hopefully) tackle a quilt for the living room, now that we have decided that black and white is the way to go. i have a hefty pile of awesome fabrics (damasks, skulls, velvet, dupioni, etc) set aside for this. lets see how long i can possibly put off this project? ;)

i'm trying to get into the swing of the holidays already. i can't believe that christmas is seriously right around the corner! i wish that i was able to make all of my gifts this year, but it just won't happen. i will, however, try to purchase mostly handmade items from etsy for friends and family. the boyfriend is a whole other story, since he mainly wants car stereo speakers...

i have a small custom project to work on this weekend, and the rest of the weekend will hopefully be filled with more fun things like going to see Twilight at the movies, and searching for a new winter jacket. i'm sure i'll end up cleaning the bathroom, too, since its on my to-do list.

u...the quilt for the living room sounds like my cup of tea. :) I'd like to do only Etsy gifts too but I really won't have $$ until AFTER xmas. I may just try making people stuff....

p.s. i think using big squares for the bedroom quilt will work really well actually. you have some pretty amazing fabric, and the larger squares will do the fabric justice. :) gosh---i can't wait to see it!
