Stashbusting? Not so much...

I had a nice visit to the local quilt shop today! I decided to make a quilt for my son's girlfriend and her favorite color is yellow. The yellow floral will be the focal fabric, the blue and green will be accents and the leaf print will be the backing. Yes, I even bought backing fabric! I love this line of fabric, it's Amelia from Timeless Treasures. I'd never seen it before and once I did, there was no going back.



Except for the shopping, I've been taking it easy because my dear husband gave me a concussion on Saturday. We came home from Target on Saturday night and he grabbed some of the bags out of the back of the car. He asked me to get the last one, so I leaned in, got it and when I straightened back up he slammed the tailgate on my head. Yeah, that hurt. I spent some quality time with an ice pack and except for a little blurred vision and a killer headache, I'm doing okay. Although, if the headache doesn't ease soon it may warrant a trip to the doctor. Good thing I have a hard head!

I need a mindless project right now since I can't seem to concentrate (wonder why???) so I cast on a little ribbed knit cap for Newborns in Need. It's very cute, I may have to make a few of these! Pictures when it's a little bigger...
