i have to say that as of lately I have not been motivated or inspired to do any type of scrapbooking,,,i'm not too sure what it is, maybe cuz i havent taken any pictures lately, i don't know!!,,,i know for sure i have majorly been into making quilts like big time!!! I have been sewing since i was a little girl and i feel quilting takes me back to those memories. how i miss being a kid, no worries, no stress, just fun!!!....last week my friend jess invited ally and myself over to make this most awesome snowball quilt!!!...her mom was soooo nice to make us yummy puerto rican food!! (thanks carmen) she is the sweetest woman ever!!!,,,,we didn't piece our quilt, but we cut out our squares, and I can't begin to tell you how beyond excited i am to piece it this weekend!!! I especially love all the fabrics i picked, they are so dreamy!!! below is a sample of the fabric im using, the toadstools fabric is only one of the fabrics, i have cloud fabric and blue polka dot fabric,,the green one is gonna be my contrasting fabric!!!..and that octopus painting is one i just purchased from elsies shop!,,,it's my very first and probably my last since her paintings are out of my budget!!..i had to get this one because i absolutely love octopuses!..they are awesome creatures!!!

How fun! I have always wanted to take up quilting, just to make my own Halloween quilts, but I really don't need another hobby! Sounds like a great time, friends, good food, and creating! You have to post the quilt when you are done!

Have a great day!

I totally understand the Elsie paintings. I have wanted one for so long but at this time I can't afford them. One of these days I will own one!!
