I had about 20 minutes between getting done with the 12:30 meeting and being due at the 4:00 one, so I decided to relax and click through quilt pics on Flickr. That turned into an irritation instead of an enjoyment because I discovered that one of the people/sites that I follow had decided to block me... could still see her pictures but not "Favorite" them. Long boring story and I think that it is straightened out, but I got my feelings injured, and it sort of slanted my feeling about the whole Flickr thing from a warm caring sharing open community to... I don't know... something less. But I'll get over it. She apologized, but I don't really understand the whole point of blocking somebody. I know there are always creeps and weirdos out there, but I didn't think I'd done anything to deserve being treated like one.
Anyway, enough with the rant!
Here's the good thing about Fat Tuesday - it's also Fat Quarter Tuesday at Fabric Etc! 20 fat quarters = $20.00
Did I go a bit overboard? You decide:
There's a nice variety of greens which I seem to never have enough of, and some other neutral/solids, then a bunch of black & white prints, then a bunch of funky/fun brights and prints, and then stripes! I grabbed a lot of stripes, having been really inspired by some works I've seen - on Flickr - like Mariquilts.
I think I'll go fondle them now.
