I am optimistic that I am almost coherent now. I finally felt up to working on the stitching and binding of my Handstitched quilt.
Pile O' Fabric hosted a Kona charm swap last month. (She may be doing more so I'm keeping an eye out!) I got to choose from some lighter purples (ewww!) and I chose crocus and thistle. I figured when I got my charms in I'd just put them in a drawer and forget about them.
When they got here though, I was all OOOOH and AHHH at the pretty rainbow inside the envelope. Though it would've made sense to put them away until later because I have hrmm... 3 large quilts, one lap quilt, and one mini in progress....

My hope is to match most of the Kona solid charms with prints, and end up with a variegated rainbow of a quilt. (I do not trust this idea will translate into reality, but I'm giving it a try anyway!)
Alright, time for a good nights sleep so I have the energy to get back to hand stitching! (Just kidding, I'm going to watch some Top Chef Master re-runs first ;)
