I have to admit the urge to sew sew sew wasn't quite there for Jan. BUT...last night I sat down and started to sew.
And it all came back! I popped in a Muppets movie, and sewed to my little heart's content.
Here's my current WIP List:
Clean up the Cave Scrap Quilt - tidy edges, complete the top. WIP.
Purple String Quilt - finish making blocks,
My Rail Fence - Needs to have a lot ripped out and redone. Le sigh.
Blue & Brown Baby Quilt - finish the binding.
5 other Baby Quilts - Don't ask. To be quilted and bound. Eventually for my Etsy shop.
Scrappy Clean up the Cave Quilt:
Blocks made, gonna do a few more today and lay them out, decide on sashing and go from there.
|Piles of scrappy blocks. I did empty out TWO tupperware containers of scraps.|
There is also a Purple String Quilt that I have on order that I am working on. It's quite overdue; there was so much going on in my personal life I just didn't have energy or inspiration to work on it. I also realized that for some reason, if I don't really like the colours I'm working with, I have a hard time starting the quilt. But now it's coming right along; here is my second big WIP.
|I have to make 48 blocks. I'm at 22.|
And Oh before I forget. I found some great cookie recipes online this week; thank you Jennifer at Jcasa for "Those Cookies" and the Peppermint Melties from Flossie Teacakes . I was in a baking mood; and here's what I did.
I made both recipes, (although, a full cap of the mint extract is WAY too much; use maybe half if you're using artificial) And then....inspiration struck; and...they came together in a pretty pink minty way!
So that's my WIP Wednesday. I might put more pics of the sashed blocks later if I get them done; but I need to work on the purple quilt first.
I hope you all have a wonderfully productive day,I shall leave you with a warm n fuzzy pic of my fatso catso enjoying one of my quilts on the couch in His Spot.
