My Fortune Said So

We got Chinese food last night for dinner and this was my fortune:

Fortune

I had to laugh, because my plan for today was to be super productive!
I had a lot to do today and even more to do tomorrow before my surgery on Tuesday. 
So I was up early, and began the wash. 
Then I cleaned up my bedroom, dumped both cat boxes, vacuumed the entire downstairs and did some more laundry. 
The one thing I really wanted to get to today was to cut out the quilt I am pattern testing for Jacquie of Tallgrass Prairie Studio
I am making 2 sizes of the pattern so I got to choose 2 different colorways.
I am totally in love with this color way. 
Not a usual one I would choose but beautiful none the less. 
I can't show the pattern but I can show you the colors! Excited? 
Me too!!

Pink and gray labeled

I even labelled them all so eventually if you want to make one just like mine you will know which colors to run right out and buy! 
OK now I would love to know what you think of this color combo.

I am so proud of myself for getting lots of things ready for myself to do while I am recovering! 
I have loads of bindings to do, and 3 quilts to sew together! 
I ordered some books to read and a couple of new magazines are on their way here too.
I am considering getting the Game of Thrones books too. 
Anyone read them?

I just got home from practicing Zumba with my instructor and am really sweaty so need to shower and do a few more things then bed.
DH even had home made chicken noodle soup and home made biscuits waiting for me when I got home, 
YUM!!
Have a wonderful evening!!

Your fabrics for the quilt for Jacquie looks so pretty. Can't wait to see it.

I have read the Game of Thrones series. Still have to finish the latest, but I am waiting because there will be at least 1 more after A Dance with Dragons, if not 2. There are a LOT of characters in them and they are thick books-but I liked them.

Love the colors - can't wait to see what you do with them! I'm reading Game of Thrones - mid-way through the second one right now. They're great! Very detailed but I kinda like that in a good book. Have you seen the HBO series? I've watched a few and they are very close to the books.

For goodness sake. You are the second blogger I follow that had a husband cook her home made chicken soup this week. I need to point it out to my hubs. I do not use just solids, so far, so I cannot comment yet on your colors I think I will need to see the end project. Cannot wait! I watched the series last year of Game of Thrones and enjoyed it. Hubs has the first book I believe but has not read it yet.
