New Computer & Some Crazy (quilting) Talk!

Howdy-doo Folksies,
Good news, good news! My new computer has been ordered and is on its way!!! I'm so excited, I ordered a laptop and I feel like a grown-up now, woo-hoodily-hoo! I just can't wait! By this time next week I'll be surfing' & bloggin' from the couch, yay!

So since this weird little phone app won't let me add more than one picture per post, I thought I'd share a little sneak of something I've been working on here and there over the past couple if months whenever I have a few extra minutes or am in between projects. Go easy on me gals, this is my first go at crazy quilting. I *think* I'm doing this right...

It's kind of neat now that I'm at the adding embellishments stage, placing little bits of this & that wherever I please is sort of fun. I have no idea where I'm going with this piece, or what I'm going to do with it when it's finished. But I think I'd like to do something *other* than a pillow. What do you guys think?

Hope your all doing well and I can't wait to catch up on all your blogs. Have a great night!

Oh wow, this is fab! Unfortunately the sun is shining on my screen so I can't see it up close, please post some big pictures when your laptop is up and running. I always struggle to know what to make stitcheries into too, though this could be a tote bag??

The wonderful thing about crazy quilting is that there is no "wrong."

As for what to do with it, have you thought of a wall hanging? I've dedicated the walls in the stairwell of my house to a random assortment of fabric projects I didn't know what else to do with.

Looking great so far. Maybe it could be made into a bag to put your sewing bits and bobs in.
