What I’m Working On….

I have so many project in the works and can’t seem to concentrate on the single one.  I always have that problem but with working on the house so much it even seems worse.  I don’t get those big chunks of time in the evening to sew for a couple hours.  I am slowly making progress though.

My small spool blocks are all made and I’m getting some sewn into blocks.

As of now I have 64 made….I need more though.  The quilt calls for 162 total.

I did stop and lay them out to see how they’ll look.

I think cute, cute, cute!!

I need to start thinking about what fabric I’ll use for the triangle setting….Hmmm.  I am going to try to find something that is already here.  I kind of like the pink shown in the original pattern but pink is something I’m short of.

I need to clean in the sewing room so I think once that’s done I’ll reward myself with a bit of time to hunt and find a fabric.  Stop back..I’ll likely be looking for some help on making a decision…I am so bad at that.

    I love your little spools. And I understand how daunting it can be to look at that 164 number when you haven’t gotten very far. However, unless you have a deadline, you can just work at your own pace and eventually you will have it done.

    Wow! Those blocks are amazing. It must have taken ages to cut them out and make the little blocks. It is so rewarding when the bigger blocks start to come together and you can see how great they look.

    Oh, Jo, I can so relate to feelings of distraction with several projects going on! That’s just our creative upswing. Happy belated anniversary and it is wonderful that you share your family values here. What a great group of kids you and he have raised!
