Good morning everyone! It's another VERY rainy day here in the Pacific Northwest - perfect weather for staying in and quilting! Tonight my little guild is having a Friday Night Frenzy so I'm getting together handwork for an evening of stitching. I probably won't stay until midnight - I'm not a night person - but I'll stick it out as long as I can.
I'm currently working on the last three blocks of Jan Patek's Mystery Quilt. Here is what the finished quilt looks like. It's been lots of fun. I confess however - this one isn't from stash - fabric comes with the pattern each month.
I'm also doing Jan's Girl Gang - It's a Wonderful Life. This one is totally from stash. Here is my progress so far. The fabric rectangle over the house is actually a blue and white plaid. It looks like a medium tone on the wall but looks really light in the picture. In the picture I think it looks very distracting so I'm probably going to frog off that piece and choose another fabric.
My new project is Heirloom Stitches by Lori Smith. This is a BOM also. Sometimes I need those. I call them "Quilt by Number" projects - do you remember paint by number kits? I did them as a child. Sometimes I just want to stitch away without thinking - it's a great way for me to meditate and rest my brain - and BOM's serve that purpose for me.
I'm loving blogging. I always wanted to keep a journal but could never stick with it. This is a great way to accomplish much the same thing and because we are sharing it's easy for me to write every day. This better be it - I need to get ready for work!
