Do You Have My Fat Pants?

A friend and I made last visits to our respective Favored Foodies (for me, a blue cheese burger at Loop Grill and multiple Tuna Subways with white chip macadamia nut cookies on the side), then turned ourselves in to Weight Watchers:

They were waiting for us. Recently, I've been depending on my black fat pants to get me through the week. I had several tops I enjoyed wearing with them, especially a lightweight brown and white polka dot ruffly top. Then one morning the pants disappeared. I can't find them anywhere. I'd like to report that they got left behind on some big date, but for starters, I would hope I wouldn't wear Fat Pants on a big date. No, they have somehow just gone and I must scour the secondhand store for another pair.

Just prior to this, Rembrandt was running along the curtains next to the ceiling, so you can imagine her mood if you couldn't tell from her pop eye:


Just look at this!! It is my House Party pattern made by a Second Saturday Sampler Little Quilts patron, who put the SSS blocks into the house pattern. As a matter of fact, I was working in the shop when she chose the fabrics and then I happened to be working at the Show and Tell for SSS and there it was. Doesn't it look great?


Stickle blocks...

Good luck with Weight Watchers. I've been working on losing a few pounds recently with mixed results. It seems as soon as I losre a pound, I find it LOL
The House Party quilt turned out great. It must be fun seeing a quilt made from one of your designs.

You crack me up!!!! And, by the way, if my fat pants ever disappear, I am up a great big gigantic creek without a paddle!! And, oooh, love those sampler blocks set into house blocks--what a creative quilter she must be!

Good luck with WW. I have only heard good things.
I love the house quilt. That was such a great idea and your dear jane blocks as usual look stunning.

I must say that I get a kick out of Rembrandt. Such an adventurous little creature. I will post a picture of my look-a-like grandcat. Come over and take a look.

I enjoyed your "Fat Pants" story!
Your blocks that you show are just wonderful. I like seeing the progress you make on them.

Did Rembrandt pull the curtains down? Wow are you ever fast with the camera! Love the house quilt! What fun! And DJ of course.

Wonderful Stickle blocks. Really love the last one.

I'm up a creek without a paddle if my fat pants disappear. I hope you are a fabulous WW success story and that I can find some inspiration from you *s*

Really enjoyed the pictures of your house blocks. That is quite lovely and I too have not seen that before.

Cool house blocks...and great fabric choices on your Dear Jane (as always!)

Good luck with the WW...my pants are an old pair of chinos. The day I can't fit into them I'll need to have my stomach stapled!

You're SOOO funny -- that crack about leaving your pants behind made me laugh out loud! Love the house quilt and your little blocks are just beautiful!

The House Party is stunning--I am not a fan of most sampler patterns but containing the different block patterns inside a house unifies them terrifically! Great idea and beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.

Ahhh ha! Caught myself. I came back to see the "House" quilt which is fantabulous and surely the most amazing one on the planet ever. I thought "whilst here, double check you left a comment last time." Well...I didn't.

30 lashes! for me.
