Sunday Stills: The Color Blue

My fabric stash...

The blue is actually getting depleted because I use that color more than any other. I always have to keep various shades of blue thread on hand...

Still working on my Storm at Sea blocks for that king-sized bed quilt...

One thing about having a powerful camera is that all the dog hair shows up in pictures...

I think someone sat on this old soccer ball and popped it...

My Tom's Blue Suede Shoes...

Dirty dishes waiting to be washed...

Can anyone guess what this next one is?

I'm positive it's a ball. I'm less sure as to what type of ball but I think it might be one of those giant exercise ones.
I see a glass with Santa Anita on it. I used to live about a half mile from there. My roommate and I had separate phone numbers and the telephone company had to report us just in case we were running a bookie operation.

A ball? Maybe a big exercise ball or a horse play ball?

Love the quilt and the stacked fabic!

looks like an exercise ball.
I love your pics, you have a real talent for taking pics.
My mother in law makes quilts and sells the baby quilts about as fast as she can make them, she is 85 so has slowed down a little in the sewing.

Ms Martyr - That's an interesting story.

Anonymous - Thanks.

ellie k - I'd like to know more about that. Does she sell baby quilts at crafts fairs, on Etsy.com, through stores, or some other way? At some point I'm going to have no more room for the quilts I make here, so I'll need to start selling them. Thank you for the kind compliment.

Everyone is right. It's an exercise ball.

My pups love balls like that one...their ultimate play toy!

Love the fabric stack and threads...all the lines and different shades of blue...very pretty.

Crystal said...

Thats a pretty cool stash of fabric, but I like the threads, a lot of color variety in blues

Linda said...

Very pretty fabric, for sure. Makes me wish I could quilt, too. Love the blue--and I'd also guess an exercise ball.

Love the fabric stash. My mother is an avid seamstress so I grew up believing volumes of fabric, patterns, thread, and trims was normal. Just like books and horses -- never too much fabric. :-)

We so have blue in common. I love it too.

All of these are very cool. Only a real photographer can make dirty dishes look awesome!

Brenda said...

love the colors of the material!

achieve1dream said...

Yep I was going to guess exercise ball too. :)

I LOVE that quilt. So gorgeous! Great pictures. :D

dibear said...

Great selection of blues, especially the fabrics and threads. Nice to meet another quilter? :)

Jame said...

I guessed exercise ball cause I have one just like it, only in green :) If you ever do start selling quilts, I'll stand in line for one.

MTWaggin said...

Oh you quilters - fabrics and threads all color organized! LOL I'm jealous and I love the one of your fabric stash!

Dreaming said...

I just want to know when you find the time to quilt!
The last is a blue ball... perhaps to sit on at the computer?

Rising Rainbow said...

Oh geez, the fabric stash looks like me! LOL

The last one looks like one of those half ball things that's flat on one side. I forget what they call them but they have those little rings like that. I want one but they are expensive.

Great selections of blue. I especially like the fabric layers and your beautiful quilt. And your blue suede shoes are adorable and look comfy.

Jen has one of those exercise balls...she calls it a bouncy ball. We bought the extra large size and even I use it. I keep hoping it will help strengthen my core balance. At least it's fun to bounce around on the ball. hehe!
