Another year filled with plans and dreams begins.
Starting a new year is almost like a "do over."
What do I need to improve on this year...
what do I need to change....
what do I need to add to my life...
or take away...?
The possibilities are endless.
I started 2015 off sewing.
(shocking, I know!!)
See, I was SUPPOSED to be cleaning my sewing room.
And I was doing pretty well
I found a bin with partially constructed blocks
from several years ago.
What's a quilter to do?
"It won't take long to sew these into a top and then
I can use this bin for something else!"
Well, a little over a day later we have this:
This block is Bonnie Hunter's "Crabapples" from 2007.
Several years ago I made a quilt with these blocks and had the
Checkerboard patches sewn together for more blocks.
A little paper piecing, cutting of setting triangles, sashing and cornerstones
and here we are.
Okay... Maybe NOW I'll get my sewing room cleaned!
Happy New Year
