Hello, my name is Pearl...

Bonnie Hunter is coming to our quilt guild retreat in March with a scrap rehab theme. Until then,
I am cutting scraps like a mad woman to prepare!  My name is Pearl and I am a scrapaholic. True dat!  Jessica  Pearl

Cutting fabric and calories!

Our quilt guild had a day sewing retreat at Stephen Foster State Park on the Suwannee River.  Fun!  However,  I did more cutting than sewing and some sitting on the river bank as well.  The weekend has included some thrift.  I patched this thrifted denim skirt with old embroidery and some scraps.  It is a tad snug as are more and more things in my closet!  I have hooked up with My Fitness Pal.  Lovely app!  Good thing, my fat quarters need trimming!!!

Nights at Improv

Current obsession, improvisational quilts! I love that I can sew scraps as they are, random and happy!  Perfect activity after a long day at work. 
I stole away for some thrift therapy yesterday.  I found this floor lamp to brighten the area over Great Grandmother's treadle.  $5 for this 'chandelier on a stick' as I call it.  Whatever it's called I love it.   Rick rack, 70's embroidery transfers for denim and 40's paper dolls rounded out the haul!  
Scrappy, thrifty, happy!  Jessica Pearl
