In my waste basket is a pair of blue slacks that I am reluctantly throwing away. They are old, the elastic is gone, some seams are ripped and the color has faded. However, these pants are so comfortable – loose and soft. Alas though, they are too big and when I saw myself in the mirror with these pants on, I had to face the truth that they are baggy and make me look frumpy. Who wants to look frumpy! I know that I could just wear them around the house, but if something makes me look frumpy then I feel frumpy and even at home when no one is looking, I really don’t want to feel frumpy. For the past week I have been working on cleaning out my office. I won’t bore you with the long list of things I am donating to charity or throwing out, but suffice it to say that I had way too much stuff packed into file cabinets, drawers, and shelves.

While I am busy sewing and making design decisions, my cats are busy meditating, thinking, planning, and dreaming of tuna.
In the tub with the Come-on-a-my-house quilt pieces I found another project that I had forgotten about. At first I couldn’t figure out what it was, but fortunately I left an EQ print-out of the planned quilt with the clue I needed to figure the mystery out. I’m going to keep it a secret for now so I will only show you this bit of fabric.
