Batting Clean-Up

Patent: US4,608,697 Date 1986

Last week I had a "to-do" list that was 2 pages long. Today it is wiped clean. If I could pat myself on the back, I would. All those pesky chores are done, baby! This is all in anticipation of fabric being delivered to my front porch tomorrow. 2 boxes, weighing 75lbs (according to the tracking document) will land about noon. The morning will be spent paying bills and the afternoon will be spent, unpacking, cutting, and fondling fabric. I'll try to remember to snap a few pictures. As I told the Halton Quilt Guild last week, "UPS Fabric Delivery Day is the best day of the year". Better than Christmas and sometimes even better than opening Day.

Speaking of Opening Day, which if you follow a particular team native to my state, is HIGHLY ANTICIPATED this year. I bought myself an APP. It's MLB At Bat 2012. With it, I can watch every pitch and listen to every inning this year on my iPhone. Crystal clear reception no matter what state, hotel room, or quilting workshop I am attending.
No more will I shake my fist in frustration at the lack of radio reception. No more cursing at the hotel t.v. because the only sport on the dial is NASCAR. I'll be there every pitch of the year. Even if it kills me.

My rotary cutter is sharp and I'm ready. I'll keep you posted. There will be scraps needing a new home - no doubt.

I can't wait to see what you make with the new fabric. I am still trying to decide what to make with my jelly roll, but I am sure it will be something americana.
