How An Idea Grows

I have yeast for brains.

I was browsing this book . . .

And came across this idea . . .

So I thought to myself, "Self . . . wouldn't it be fun to do each letter with a novelty print that starts with that letter."  I scoured my stash and came up with these.  I've since purchased a few more.  But, it doesn't end there, no.

I thought, "wouldn't it be fun to do an entire I Spy quilt out of prints arranged alphabetically."  What was I thinking!!!  Anyway, I've started to organize my collection in sleeves alphabetically ;).  But, it doesn't end there.

Since I knew that would be a large undertaking, I've been fussy cutting little 2" squares to make I Spy blocks to use as the back of each page of my ABC book.  I'll post a picture sometime.

See . . . yeast for brains.  Stick an idea in there and it rises and grows and even ferments a bit.

On another note . . . Joe is 4 months old already.  Guess I ought to finish quilting the rest of this quilt, since he no longer fits in the space I have quilted.
