Today

I'm 57. Wow. Remember when we were 25 and our parents told us to wait until we were their age? Well, it's happened. There are some differences though. I still color my hair, have most of my teeth and can sit on the floor with my grandson. My Mom stopped playing with me before I was 10 or 11. She had "matured". I don't want to "mature". I tell people that I may be getting older but that doesn't mean I have to grow up. lol

I talked about Magical Medallions. It's slow going because I'm in a pit called no motivation. But here are the fabrics I'm going to use from my stash:

Greens: 10 1/8yd pieces, 5 1/4yd pieces, & 1/2yd of 2 favorite greens.
Purples: 6 1/8yd pieces, 1/4yd of 2 purples and 1/2yd of 1
Pink: 6 1/8yd pieces, 1/4yd of 2 pinks and 1/2 yd of 1
Yellow or Gold: 5 1/8yd pieces, 1/2yd of 1

By my calculations, that's 8 1/8yds. It's not a lot but it does make a dent.
Here's the link to KKB's gallery: http://www.karenkaybuckley.com/gallery Magical Medallions is in the center toward the bottom. I'm doing the first block the Piece O'Cake way. I took a class from Becky Goldsmith so I like that technique.
