busy… busy


Been keeping busy…I just love sights like this one …a sure sign of work getting done.



Turning all those tiny 1” scraps into this. 

It’s going quicker than I thought.



It does help to be listening to this while I work …such a good book!!

Can’t seem to put it down or the sewing

…long time, no see…

Wow, what a crazy, busy summer this has been!  I was thinking my blogging days were over.  And no time for quilting either.  With that, I lost some of my motivation on projects I was working on this year…

…even though I was loving them …go figure! 



So I dug through my drawers and bins looking for something to inspire me, and found these butterflies I started some time ago for Lori’s row-along.  Hmmm…I don’t think I will finish it anytime soon…



… but I really loved those butterflies, so I just cut up the fabrics I was saving for the other rows and turned them into butterfly pieces.   



And it will just be a butterfly quilt instead.  Nice and relaxing and so pretty to work on.



I also pulled out a box that keeps my tiniest of scraps.  They are all trimmed to just 1” wide!  Seemingly way too small to do anything with but oh, just too nice to toss!  I sorted and organized them into this divider and I was all of a sudden happily sewing away and having fun.

The colored squares finish at 1/2 inch so it will be interesting to see how big this quilt gets before I decide I’ve had enough….mini quilt?… topper?… do you think I could make it to a lap size quilt?  …bigger?

It might take the rest of my life…

It doesn’t matter…because I think I’ve got my quilting motivation back.

and I’m glad to be back to the awesome world of blogging.
