It’s 9:18 p.m. and I’m piecing fabric for my current project. I’ve already been at it for several hours. It’s New Year’s Day and husband has been intermittently watching Star Wars and napping on the family room couch for a couple of hours. The Blue One is playing the iPad and playing in his room, and The Pink One is playing with the dollhouse Santa brought her. This leaves me several hours of ‘free’ time to bust out as much of this top as I can before Saturday. Saturday is my next ‘date’ with the longarm.
The project I’m working on is Terry Atkinson’s Fire Escape using Joy (Kate Spain/Moda). I had everything except one of the fabrics cut before today, so I already had a pretty good head start. By 9:18 when our dog came to check on me (AKA let me know it’s time to head to bed), I only had about 12 more pieces to sew together before I had this:
I’m now ready to assemble all my rows, and I’m hoping everything comes together quickly. If not, not a huge deal. My longarm date on Saturday wasn’t planned for this quilt, it was scheduled to quilt my Project Linus donation quilt. I’ll share pictures in a future post, the top is at Lucy’s waiting for me to return.
For fun, I thought I’d pull up my project list from a few months ago.
On The Back Burner:
Reunion – Cluck Cluck Sew’s Inside Out pattern.
(This is going to take a lot longer than I had originally thought!)
I haven’t touched this since the summer!
Lucy’s Crab Shack in Cluck Cluck Sew’s Plus pattern.
Probably not ‘next up’ any longer. Once I get back to the Reunion quilt, I’m not going to want to jump right back in and do the reverse of the Inside Out pattern right away.
Somewhere down the line:
Table runners/coasters for the living room tables. Maybe not. These are currently WIPs and I quickly fell out of love with them.
Mug rug for my desk Done! (And one for Nichole, too!)
Bliss quilt…I still have no clue what pattern
A Christmas Quilt
A Halloween Quilt
A second Project Linus quilt. I just bought some Peanuts fabric specifically for this and 2 pillowcases from FQS on their end of the year sale.
And many, many more!
