Wonder Wallet



I picked up a little wallet pattern at the quilt store yesterday. Hannah had looked at it last time we were there and wanted one for herself. It's quick and simple. Hannah gets the wallet with the sunflowers on it. It matches the bag we made her a long time ago. And the little wallet on the right matches perfectly with purses I made...


I've made some of the blocks for my newest quilt. I made a huge mistake on cutting. (That's why I was at the quilt store yesterday.) I followed the cutting instructions based on the amount of fabric that came in the kit. It turns out they made some substitutions that look better than what I cut. I decided that I wouldn't be happy with the fix I could come up with or the cuts I already had made so I ordered a few yards online last night to fix what I did. I hate making mistakes like that. While I was ordering my fabric I splurged and got a little extra fabric. Anna Maria Horner, you make delicious fabric! So bold and funky yet it all goes together so well.

I love my husband. When I come in and ask him if it's okay if I spend $90 on fabric he doesn't mind. He says ok. I think he understands that I have an addiction problem. "Hello, my name is Ellen. I am an addict. It's been just a few hours since my last fabric fix..."

Cute wallets!

No one here is going to say you have too much fabric or to not buy fabric!

Daniel can go to Chicago ... you can buy fabric. I think it all evens out in the end. Those purses were really cute, and I think the wallets will go well!

That is Ok, I think i am developing a yarn addiction. I went to that store on Broadway and had to force myself not to buy any yarn since I did not need any at the moment. I just needed needles.
