Enjoying the New Year

I have been happily enjoying the days,  they are filled with doing the normal activities of running a household.  This week I am spending much of my free time in my sewing room, looking forward to completing a few things soon.  Currently I am cutting the fabric for the remaining 6 "pieced" blocks for the Green Piece quilt.  The main reason I'm wanting to get this quilt done is that I love the fabric and there are lots of "leftovers"  I would like to use  in the Mystery Quilt I got here,  but I don't dare use any of the fabric until I am finished the top.  I also want to work on the "Fat Quarter Quilt" I picked for this month, I want it to be done before the next monthly meeting on the 22nd of this month. 

I did have an errand to run yesterday and on the way back I stopped at the quilt shop, I needed more Heat Bond Lite for my applique.  This time of year she has specials of the week, this week's special was $3 per yard sale room fabric.......I did look, but I was good and didn't buy anything.  I always check the sale room in case she adds something that would be great as a backing, no luck yesterday.  I left spending only $2.36 on the Heat Bond Lite! 

Gotta go get the rest of the morning chores finished before I can do any sewing, have a blessed day!


  1. Glad you're able to spend time in the sewing room again. Can't wait to see the Green Piece quilt finished.

  2. You certainly have lots of projects going on. Reminds me of somebody else I know of... I envy you your time in the sewing room.


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
