Headed off to my local quilt store, good old Country Pickins this morning for some tearaway stabilizer so I could keep on working on my Kris Kringle projects and while I was waiting at the counter I saw this remnant. Don't know why it grabbed me but I had to have it - not sure what I would do with it but I love the colours and pattern. Wish I could get some more. Not enough of the selvage to see the print name - probably just as well as I am supposed to be reducing my stash not increasing it! It is really pretty though.
I managed some sewing this afternoon as planned. I finally got the borders sewn on the baby quilt I have been working on for a while. Work had stalled while I waited for the baby to be born. He finally arrived on the 16th and that gave me all the details I needed for the labels on the back of the quilt. This is supposed to represent the Southern Cross. In each star I have a few details,
such as baby's name
Mum and dad's names, weight and length. I have the batting ready to go. Now I just need to layer, quilt and bind it. Hopefully that will get done by the end of this week.
After that I managed to make some progress on my KcKenna Ryan secret project. I have now stitched all the letters
and have only to remove all the stabiliser - my least favourite job. At least the stabilizer makes it so much easier to stitch!
All in all I achieved much more today that I thought I would.
I am beginning to think that I might spend January sorting thru my sewing room and having a good reorganise. I am sure I have too much stuff in here that I am not using and it is taking up room so I can't see the things to do want to work on!
I am also thinking of spending the summer hols sorting thru my scraps and cutting them up to make them easier to use. Just have to decided the best way to do that! Any suggestions? I kind of feel that a good tidy up and clutter bust will set me up for a much more productive year. Hmmm, still thinking about it.
till next time....happy stitching!
