WIP it - snowmageddon


Due to snowmageddon that crept through the midwest earlier this week my 3 days off turned in to 6 days off so I decided to be productive and get things done instead of curling up in bed and watching Netflix all day. It was good to get back on machine to do some sewing after a long holiday season of tons of crocheting. I did learn a good lesson though, START EARLY.

  • everything else
I'm still doing a lot of crocheting. I have some changes I plan to make this year regarding my shops and holiday shops and craft fairs. I don't want to have to be super busy at the end of the year that I don't have time for anything else so I'm starting early. I'll post more about that later though.

I'm having fun looking up patterns and at fabrics for the quilts for 100 Quilts, 100 Kids. I thought that I was going to just choose a few simple patterns and make those over and over, but now I'm thinking this is the perfect opportunity to try out different things in a small quilt. The only problem is having to part with them all. I'm totally bummed that I hadn't found Robert Kaufman's - Blythe sooner so I could've hoarded some for myself. Oh well.

Your stacked coins qui;t is looking good. Sewing is a great way to use those extra snow-bound days.

Love your stacked coin quilt - looks like a good design for some crap busting. Hope you're surviving the white-out ok? Stay warm :)
