Hobbies are supposed to be relaxing - mine usually start out that way but eventually result in copious amounts of four-letter words streaming from my mouth! Knitting, quilting, triathlon training... all send me into fits of swearing!
But. They all start out soooo good.
For instance, check out the beeeeyouuuutiful fabric I just bought for my brother and new sis-in-law's wedding present! I'm making them a lap quilt and wanted it to be funky!
Step 1. Pick out a pattern.
Step 2. Visit quilting store and salivate over numerous fabrics.
Step 3. Repick your pattern when you can't make your fabric "work" with the first!

Step 4. Rack up credit card bill - sigh heavily.
Nice Japanese-Inspired Prints
Step 5. Get home, wash/dry/iron fabrics and put on bias.
Step 6. CUT CUT CUT!
Cut Up n' Ready to Go!
Step 7. Get swearing... I mean SEWING!
