Another weekend down and I can attest that everything is bigger in Texas. So big that WareBear and I had the hardest time deciding what and where we needed to be all weekend long. We ended up spending most of our morning and afternoon down in Deep Ellum – with a quick trip to CityCraft to pick up bobbins for my sewing machine.
I enjoyed a nice cold brewski bright and early Saturday afternoon (12:03PM to be exact) and a huge slice of pizza from Serious Pizza.
I adore Serious Pizza and made WareBear take me there just so we could have lunch. One of my biggest vices are people that stare and do the side snicker. I never understood it growing up and I’m not that type of person. My philosophy is nobody’s perfect and its not my place to judge. A young lady working at Serious Pizza did exactly that as WareBear and I walked in; trust me when I say she did it, I noticed it with my too observant self. With these things, I don’t say anything to the individual at hand – but it won’t stop me from blogging about it. So just a little food for thought next time you are out and about and think about judging or snickering about someone – get over yourself. I don’t care, which is why I didn’t address it with her. I will continue being as awesome as I am and she will forever be left snickering in the cloud of glitter and fabulousness that I leave behind me!

On to better things – I needed to stop by CityCraft to pick up bobbins to fit Indigo LaRue. That diva cannot use just regular bobbins from JoAnn’s or Hobby Lobby – he needs to have the good stuff.
After the stop, I knew exactly what I was coming home to work on. And guess what?!?!
You are probably wondering what I am talking about.
It’s been my personal quilt – the one that I can call my own. I finally quilted and binded the beauty this weekend. Words cannot express the sheer amount of excitement to finally be finished with this project. I’m not your average quilter. I rarely follow patterns, my color choices are outrageous, and I have yet to master the art of binding – but those are all minor things. If you want to quilt, you just have to go all in with it. Which is why this abstract beauty is my pride and joy right now. The binding isn’t perfect (still working on it) and the quilting doesn’t have any rhyme or reason to it, but it’s all mine.
My next class in my master’s program starts tomorrow and I have to start drafting a list of projects that I need to tackle in the next few months. They range from wedding, birthday, and craft exchange gifts – in addition to a completely homemade Christmas.
In addition to that, I have big plans for Ware is the Vodka?!?, so share with your friends because we are on Facebook now!
