Instead of listing all my projects every week, and having some of them just staring at me, sighing, that I haven't worked on them.  I thought I would list what I have worked on.  That way, I can see positive progress.  sounds good to me! 

I sent out this past week, 4 sets of 6 6" nine patches, 1 set of  6 9" nine patches and 1 12" birthday block from 30s fabrics.  All for swaps.  no pictures.  I wasn't thinking!!!  but I figured I used 1 3/4 yards of scraps and precut squares!  I won't count it yet because it will come back to me.  I will count it when I make the quilt. 

I worked on Home for the holidays - from primitive gatherings.  I have all the snowball blocks done!  now to get them ready for applique.  I have started on the pieced blocks.  I am setting up one block and sewing it together as I sew other things. 

I worked on the 2nd block from Quilt Doodle Doodles

And my Blessing of Spring top is finished.  Now to quilt it and embellish it! 

I cleaned off my HQ16 table.  why do I pile stuff there?  that prevents me from quilting!!!!  anyway, it's cleaned off and Blessings of Spring is loaded! 

So for not sewing for a little over a month, I think I had a darn good week!  I didn't get blessings quilted, but it is loaded. My goal this week is to do 1 pass at a time, advance it, then go do something else for a while.  come back and do it all again!  I can do that.  I am not in a race to get it done.  Also, I got out a red star quilt that just needs the binding.  Probably about  12 years old!  I am doing a scallop binding on it.  the binding is all cut, just have to finish marking and sewing it on.  I can do hard things!  wish me luck.....




  1. I agree with your listing your positive progress. With you difficult beginning to this year you have done quite well to accomplish all you have. Blissful Stitching Dear...
