Happy New Year!

This is my latest "want to do" series. It's a series of bench pillows by Kimberbell Designs. This is the Thanksgiving/November pattern that I started before Thanksgiving and have decided that I need to put this as a leader/ender project until the top is pieced enough to do the machine applique. I cut all the applique pieces with my Scan and Cut so they are very precise, fusible pieces and are ready to be ironed on, except the word Together, which I just couldn't find the right colors/fabric so it just sat. Sign. It has a braided top and bottom border which was fun to put together, so it's pretty close to to speak. It's already January and I missed the December/Christmas one altogether, so I will forgive myself and move on, but will keep it handy to use instead of a scrap piece of fabric. Now, do I do January or February next?  Thoughts?  

I didn't really sew today, but I fixed my wifi extender so that I could use my laptop in my bedroom again. Does thinking about sewing count?

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…
