Scraps managed





As you can see,I have won the battle of the scraps. My basket is empty and now holds all my civil war repro fabric which I hope to whittle down as I make my Barbara Brackman blocks. My goal is to make 5 blocks in February. And speaking of goals, I've made a list of goals for February. I don't know if they will all get done but I hope by writing them down there will be some accountability.
Sewww, here we go!

1. Make 5 civil war blocks;
2. Make sampler block (yep, I joined another block of the month);
3. Finish happy villages wall hanging (which has been "hanging" around for about 4 years);
4. Quilt the turquoise log cabin quilt (it is loaded on the frame which is 1/2 the battle);
5. Cut and sew mastectomy pillows (my guild's ongoing community project);
6. Cut pieces for 2 projects to take with me on my April retreat. I want to bring 4 projects to piece on that weekend. I have picked a top from "stack the deck" and one from M'liss Rae Hawley fat quarter quilts called roman stripes.

I know it is an ambitious list but February has an extra day so I should be ok. LOL

Although I was away for six months on a blogging sabbatical, I did finish a few things. This is a Round Robin I did with a few gals in my guild. It doesn't have a name yet (hence no label) but it is hanging in my sewing room. Any suggestions for a name would be welcomed.

Hey Annie, welcome back yourself, I'm sorry that I've been so absorbed in my own situation I didn't know. Please forgive me *VBS*
Delighted to see your new post! What an ambitious list but I dig the "accountability" remark. I'll give some thought to that and may join you.
Love the wallhanging, I've yet to hang anything in the new digs. A bit envious of that EMPTY basket!! Darn! Big hugs, Finn

It's good that you are blogging again. Those goals are doable. I can't imagine not having scraps! Thanks for commenting on my blog.

Isn't an empty basket a great sight? Even if it's temporary and you would need a bushel basket or bigger for all the projects you have lined up.

Good goals, some can be knocked out in a few hours, others, maybe a few days, lol!

Your round robin is intricately beautiful. The gold sashing reminds me of cloisonne.

Good on ya for the goalmaking. My New Year Resolution wasn't really a resolution but a promise to myself to set achievable goals each month . . . . so far - so good. It's seeing the success that keeps it going *s*

Great job on emptying your scrap basket! See your work makes me miss my quilting...something I didn't bring when we moved to PR.
