Carolina Crossroads is done/done - quilted, bound and labeled. I washed it and the QFAH I finished last week and just took them out of the dryer -- CC is still a little damp, but done/done!
And I have discovered I didn't add either of these two ufo's to my ufo list on my blog -- but whatever. I have two finished for 2008 and that's a good thing!
I've also been working on getting the desk and filing cabinet cleaned out and orderly. I can finally say -- that is done, too! I still have a foot tall stack of old files to go through and either shred or file, but the desk has never been this organized! When I finish this stack, I can start moving stuff from other areas in the house down to the filing cabinet where it all belongs -- I've never had the desk organized enough to do that before!
And, I've been working on my computer files and have gotten a few of them cleaned out -- that will be an ongoing project, of course!
To celebrate the finish of Carolina Crossroads today, I finally pulled some fabric and started cutting my strips to make my log cabin quilt that I challenged everyone with. I was thinking I would use my newly cleaned out scrap bins, but the most strips of one color are green and I am so tired of using green that I rebelled! I pulled some blue and white fabrics from stash -- mostly fat quarters, a few quarter yard lengths, and started cutting the blues. I decided that the blue and white would probably be kind of boring, so I pulled some lavenders, purples and red-purples and cut them up too. I still need to cut the whites - a project for tomorrow. I also decided to cut up all the fabrics that I pulled and whatever I don't use will go into the scrap bins. So, I'm working on reducing my stash a little at a time!
I'm planning on going to an annual "Sew-In" on the 8th and will take the log cabin strips and my featherweight and just strip piece all day long! I don't have any idea how big this quilt will be!
My isp is not playing nice -- yet again tonight, so guess I'll try to publish this before I get kicked off again!
