Checking in with my work in progress.....I have been cutting my scraps from

 this quilt to make some scrappy hexagons with EPP. I have cut some up into triangles and diamonds to get a more pieces look to the quilt.  It may only end up a pillow or zip bag but I love the fabrics so much I needed to use up the scraps.  It really brightens my day during my long train trip tp work....

Not much time for sewing after work this week due to inventory coming up....but I will have some much needed vacation time at the end of the month right in time for the Road To California Quilt Show.  Anyone else going or taking classes?   I usually go for the shopping and to look at all the quilts on display.  

Almost to work, gotta go, happy sewing, K

Happy New Year

I am so ready for a new year!  I have all kinds of things I want to do, like..... 

  • Make a modern scrappy quilt from the new book I just bought, Sunday Morning Quilts.
  • Clean out and organize my fabric.
  • Make backs and quilt the finished tops my sister made.
  • Finish the hand appliqué scallops on my Fantasy Flowers quilt top.
  • Then quilt it, the back is ready to go.
  • Go on a vacation
  • Exercise every week. Ugh gotta do it.
  • Make a biscornu.  It's a little embroidered pillow or pincushion.  I saw it on a blog and now I have to have one.
  • Start my spring garden, oh wait it's too cold right this minute....wait till March.
  • Make more hexies, and make them into a scrappy bright lap quilt.
  • Figure out how to design a cute blog.....

I have lots more to add but I need to go clean the garage and make my last donation to the good will today for the year.

Here is my mosaic for this year's project, not all of them because I didn't take pictures or have a blog at the time.

 I do love blogging, it keeps me focused on what I love to do and maybe I will start my second career here, the possibilities are's a NEW YEAR!!!!!

What are your plans for the NEW YEAR????
