New Sewing in Progress...

New Year, new sewing projects to start.  As I finished 2 projects at the end of the year I thought I'd allow myself to start a couple of new ones.  At last count I have 13 unfinished projects and 4 tops, so I feel like everything is under control especially since I'm not far off from finishing 2 more quilts.



The "Just take 2" Mystery quilt has me intrigued and I have decided to do mine in blues and whites.



Here are my hearts ready to be cut out and appliqu├ęd for block 5.



And the pieces stacked with their instructions for the other blocks.

I've also signed up for the block party that Lynda Hall is organizing.  These are some of the fabrics I've pulled using her instructions for guidance.



So far those are the only new projects I've started, but after seeing some of the cute scrappy houses being made I feel myself slipping...and really fancy joining into the building houses from scrap challenge.  I can afford one more challenge right?!

Until next time....

I most definitely think you deserve one more challenge! After all you finished two projects at the end of the year. One finish = 2 starts, right? :)

Challenges are so tempting, must admit I like the Building houses one, but I did promise myself I would be good and concentrate on UFOs.
On the other hand .......
Enjoy them!

Fantastic projects lined up!!! I must say those houses are tempting - always loved scrappy houses. Enjoy yourself (that's why we do it!)

Those scrappy houses have been calling my name too :0) I am resisting so far... Love the blues you are using for Take 2.

Definately go for another challenge! Looking forward to watching the blue and white quilt evolve.

I love houses and was very tempted by the scrap houses challenge - but the finish at 3"! Even I can resist that one!

Barb said...

I might be slipping right along with you...love the blues!

Do It! Of all the new projects floating around, those little houses are tempting me the most too -- I'm trying to be strong.... ;-)
