A New Project and a Progress Report
As you know dear friends, I have been very good over the last months (maybe more than a year), about getting down and dirty with some well loved, but neglected, UFO's. Although this made me feel quite virtuous, it also left me feeling a little uninspired. Let's be honest, for some of us, starting is everything.
So in a moment (or two) of weakness, I succumbed to my starting desire, and started not one, but two, new projects. OK while we are in the confessional, I will also admit to signing up for an extra BOM (of the Sue Spargo variety).
I'm not revealing all today - too much excitement could lead you all into temptation! But really, confronted with this, how could you resist?
It's a magnificent, ambitious project, that comes in small doses. So whilst I can't guarantee that I will keep up, I hope not to get too far behind.
The first month of the King George coverlet, was one beautiful block.
Progress is being made on the very gorgeous 2011 BOM, Imperial Blooms. Block 6 (out of 9) completed (a couple of close ups)
and Block 7 well under way.
And yes, another treasured project from the past continues to move forward.
I like this block of the Antique Wedding Sampler very much. I've actually lost track now of how far I have to go with this - sometimes better not to count I think.
Hopefully next time I will have the first block of my other new temptation to show you. It's soooooooo pretty.
Other than that, today I went to the always enjoyable Quilts in the Barn. Linda and her very dedicated friends do such a fabulous job with this event, well done everyone. I didn't take any photos, but there are plenty in blogland, for example, check out my sidebar for Buddy & Me.
I hope the lucky raffle winner will enjoy the raffle quilt, lovingly made by the SSS and quilted by Helen Hayes for such a great cause.
Until next time,
