What fun!

Went to Lowe's today to get my paint chips for the quilt challenge. My sister went with me and helped. I brought home 42 paint chips, what fun! Words like poetic, Mark Twain, catwalk and Moroccan, you would never even guess the colors! Now the tough part, have to narrow the 42 to 3 or maybe 4 (if I add my maiden name). Whew!
