I had a loverly, quilterly day today! I don't have any pics tonight because it was too late in the afternoon to get any good light, but I made another tree skirt today. It's from the Buggy Barn patterns and the top is finished. Hope to piece the backing, sammich and quilt tomorrow and then I can play in my scraps for the rest of the month - nay, year!
It felt so wonderful to be fondling fabric today -- I know you all know what I mean. It seems like it's been forever since I could sit down and sew and yet it's only been a few days! I need that fix at least a few minutes every day -- think from now on I'll set aside at least 15 minutes a day -- if I can't sew, I can at least sort and file my scraps -- I still have tons in baskets and totes to be put in the plastic drawers. That should satisfy the need to fondle fabric until I can sew again! And maybe I'll pull out that Hawaiian quilt that is still waiting to be finished -- hand quilting -- 15 minutes a day will have it finished before too long.

Hi glad you got to play today....all the things you mentioned sound good to me..especially that part about "the rest of the year" *VBG*

I've finished up my 20 Pineapple Blossoms blocks, and spent time cutting the 9 degree wedges for my DD's tree skirt. Am so anxious to sew them, but you need ALL of them cut first as they go in a certain maybe tomorrow I can sew them and see what I get...*G*
Our snow turned into about 3" and has quit for now, but it's frosty cold out there...stay warm friend! Hugs, Finn
