Linking to Live a Colorful Life's Really Random Thursday seems like the perfect thing today.
Live A Colorful Life
Alas, I am surrounded by randomness.  So many things to be done or in the works.

There is a backing for the Breathe quilt in progress.

Some of the last tomatoes (and a petite pepper) picked from Dad's garden yesterday.  We've had a frost or two.  The vines are turning brown.

My three vintage typewriters were posted on craigslist yesterday, in an effort to try to sell them locally so I don't have to worry about packing and shipping.  I kinda hate to part with them, but it's time for someone else to enjoy them. 

A few things waiting to be photographed and listed on eBay.  Not pictured is the pile on the chair and chaise behind me.  Someone shoot me if I buy another leather jacket or Harley-Davidson shirt at Goodwill.

Orphan blocks languishing on my couch.  I should just give these away.  Any takers?  Gone ~ thanks!

The reading stack next to my bed. 

Mostly quilt p0rn.  Optical illusion quilts and one- or two-color traditional quilts are my current obsessions.  I hope I actually make something before the whim passes.  Does that ever happen to you—you think it to death?

Plans and patterns from some clever folks that I'd like to try.  This is just what I've printed out or obtained in the last week or so.

Finally, this new fabric, which makes me giggle with glee!  Alexander Henry's Hurry Down the Chimney.  Such pretty packages...

I bought every last yard on the bolt at the shop.  Christmas presents for girlfriends, most likely.  I not-so-secretly want to hoard it, but 'tis better to give and share the fun! 

That is a look behind the scenes here.  What kind of randomness have you been up to?


  1. Great photos, if you want to give the blocks away, I belong to WOCS and we make quilts for nursing homes. We always need blocks.

  2. I think I may need to get some of that fabric!

  3. Oh my, you have things all over. Close your eyes, pick one and go from there. Lol! Hope you get it all done before time to make gifts of that cool fabric! Lol. Have a lovely evening!
    Hugs, Loretta

  4. Wow, your randomness knows no bounds. It almost needs a pg13 rating!

  5. I loved this randomness! I do think it to death sometimes, or bookmark it and never go back to the bookmarks. That last fabric is fun! What a package indeed!

  6. That sexy Santa fabric is hysterical. Don't feel bad, you should see the reading pile nearly swallowing up my side of the bed. (-:

  7. I had so many comments until I got down to your Christmas fabric - then they all flew out of my head as my jaw dropped and I started drooling!!! Thanks for sharing - I've got to get me some of that - I think for a pair of sleep pants!!

  8. Hubba hubba! (drool) Yes! Nice fabric - naughty us. What will Santa think.

  9. You sure know how to get our attention! I appreciate your's something we celebrate daily around here:)

  10. What wonderful randomness! I have never listed anything on Craigs list or ebay. Good for you! Your reading stack looks like mine. And that fabric cracks me up!

  11. Loved this post! Great composition -- a little of this and a little of that, and it was all just right.
