...Hello, my name is Kathy...
{support group chants..."Hi, Kathy."}
...and I'm a fabriholic.

I don't know what it is about the stuff...I love the way it feels, the way it smells...the possibilities!  I recently signed up for a really cute BOM for next year.  I'm so excited about it!  It was created by my friend, Cori over at Creativity Amongst Chaos.  You can look at it here.  It involves a lot of applique...something I'm kind of new at...but hoping to get better at.  One reason I love it so much is because of the fabric!  Feast your eyes on this palette!

There are also some light blues involved that haven't come in the mail yet. 

I've also been collecting fabric for a Christmas quilt that I've been wanting to do for, um, uh, next year.
I love that color of red and the vintage-ness of the Christmas photos.  I just bought the red fabric the other day.  I had been stalking it at the fabric store for a few months, and it was finally on sale!  50% off!

I've also had these little numbers for a while.

There are more prints than this.  A lot more.  I have about 250 total 4" blocks.  Why on earth would I buy fabric if I didn't have a specific project in mind, you ask?  A few months ago, my husband had to go out of town.  For.  two.  weeks.  It was the first time he had ever been gone for such a long time and I didn't realize just how much I liked having him around. :)

To fill the empty void, I turned to e-bay.  

We collected all kinds of fabric during that time.  I love a deal, so I didn't buy anything horribly expensive.  I also love collecting things that go together...which is why I now have 250 blocks from the Amy Butler Lotus collection.

I can't decide what I want to do with them, but I love them all together. 
Anybody got any good ideas for me?

I started decorating for Christmas the Monday after Thanksgiving...and I can't stop.  It seems like I just keep adding and fussing and rearranging.  I think I'm almost done though, and thought I would share a few pictures with you.

So, I decided that I needed to spend more time blogging, and, since I am so scattered in my interests {decorating, crafts, cooking, writing, quilting, travel, photography, etc. etc. etc.} my posts will probably be on different things each time.  Today I thought I would share a quilting project I've been working on.  For the past few months, I've been learning to piece and learned how to make a new block {or two or three} each week.  I am hoping to get them put together in a quilt really soon.  These are some of my favorite blocks.  What do you think?
