A Passion for Purple

I had one of those weeks, not a lot got done.  DH took Monday off, and I started to take a class at the senior center with the MIL about nutrition, aging and diabetes.  I will take the class for the next 4 weeks.  Tuesday I worked on loading a quilt on the quilter, which was not easy, and I fought it big time, then I had a guild board meeting.  Tuesday afternoon while sitting at the breakfast bar chatting with DH, I went to push back into the captain's chair and my foot slipped and I kicked the cabinet.  Really hard!  DH decided that it warranted a trip to the emergency room.

I thought my foot should be part of the RSC see the nice purples streaks?  It isn't broken, just bruised really bad, and swollen.  Wednesday DH stayed home to help me wrangle "The Finn", and for some reason I spent the majority of the day sleeping.  Obviously my body needed to do some healing.  Thursday I still took it pretty easy, just hanging with Finn, cutting scraps, and reading. 

Friday was the day!  I pulled out all of those pretty purples, and started cutting.

A purple fox with a foxy face.  The fabric is the new Tula Pink line called Chipper for Free Spirit.


I know this line was by Joel Dewberry



I then decided to lay out my skulk of foxes (I love that a skulk of foxes).
Wait a minute here.... I am short a blue fox.  The orange fox was going to go into the original baby quilt but I chose not to use it. I went back and checked my other posts and I only had made 4 blue foxes.  I need to make another fox, a blue one. 

I forgot how much I like purple, except not on my feet other than maybe my toenails.

Hope you are feeling better. Purple is much better in fabric than skin.
