Cinnamon Bears

My mother was right.  Did you know that eating a whole bag of cinnamon bears really can spoil your appetite?  You may discover this when your family asks, “What’s for dinner?” And you can’t imagine why they would want dinner when you are not even hungry.  It sounds like a good evening to spend in your sewing room.  Of course you may have to get some better nutrition later to make it through the evening--like popcorn or soda.

On another note, I need to get started on a project but I am stuck.  I don't have the right fabric. I've been looking, but nothing has really hit me yet.  So then I think, "I'll just use that piece I have in my cupboard." But when I get home and look at it, I remember that it doesn't really work either. I can't even tell you what it is that I need, I will just know it when I see it.  Maybe the exact right fabric doesn't exist.  What do you think?  Do you have trouble finding what you don't know you are looking for?  Any ideas?

I always want black and cream fabrics... all sorts. You always seem to find the cutest ones in fabric stores near you, but out here by me- nothing! Only black and whites. It's always so hard to find black and cream:(

p.s. You crack me up with the spoiling dinner:) Did you make the family something or make them fend for themselves? I would have opted for some quiet time in my quilting oasis too, but always easier said than done:)

My new fabric line with Henry Glass has some great black and creams in it. I won't be out until summer, but it is worth the wait! I wish I could have done more but the pattern numbers they allow is limited, so there is one black with a cream viney stripe, and a cream with small black floral motifs. The other blacks in the group have lots of colors, reds, greens, yellows, blues.
Maybe I will post a sample soon.
P.S. yes, "fend for yourself" did come into play.

HI Jill
Great blog and a once a month post will work.
We met at New Friends and I promised to become a follower on your blog so here I am!
Looking forward to seeing your fabric line soon...and so far I am loving the glue for my machine applique. I am so glad to get rid of the darn pins and this is a perfect alternative...I am going to use it when I teach my 3 methods of machine applique class to my night group!

I didn't know you had a blog. I love it! And cinnamon bears for dinner sound fun maybe I will eat them on my treadmill just as I do cadbury eggs. Tanya is coming to visit in a couple weeks so I will send your machine home with her so Tali will have a machine to use at quilt retreat! That will work out nicely except for the fact that I won't be there...oh well. Tell everyone hi for me. And happy shipping and eventually sewing!

I think someone should start an all-night quilting store. I always figure out just what fabric I need after 9:00pm. In the morning I don't think as clearly and I can't remember the inspiration I had the night before.
