Dreams of lavender taffeta

You know how when you do something repetitively for a long time how it sometimes follows you to sleep? Well, last night my dreams were full of lavender taffeta. That in itself should nudge it over into the slightly disturbing category.

At work yesterday, I spent a good portion of my day piecing a customer quilt. It is made entirely out of cut up bridesmaid and flower girl dresses from I don't know how many weddings. Taffeta and silk and satin and crepe and every other slicker-than-snot fabric you can think of is included. And as an added bonus, some of them are stretchy! And the crowning jewel, the whole top is made of half square triangles! I have never been a big fan of half square triangles, but when you add snot and stretch, you are just asking for trouble.

The jury is still out on this one.

As an added bonus, I did not have any granny panties to include in my quilt like my co-worker Mary had to add into hers. Memory quilts are wonderful things, but that is one memory I may have left in the drawer!

  1. Hahahaha! That is too funny (about the granny panties), and I totally agree with you on the snot and stretch. Ouch!
