I decided that I needed to uncluttered my quilting life. I have so much quilting stuff, some left over from the Fibre Junction days ... fabric and more fabric. I'm not sure what to do with it all except make more quilts. Not that it's a bad idea, but I already have so many projects going at the moment. For instance ...

Not sure if any of you know this, but I'm such a Lego fan. As a matter of fact, I have to be careful when I go on their site ... I can easily drop quite a few dollars in no time.
Funny thing, Pumpkin loves Legos too. At first, I would indulge my love of Legos by buying her sets. Now, I just buy for myself ... like last week! lol
Once the Saturn V rocket was built, we went shopping for more Legos! lol Pumpkin fell in love with the tractor ...
I've always wanted a tractor! I guess that will do for now! lol
Last but not least .... Here's T
Better watch it ... he's scary. So much so that Stella did one of her funky black cat jumps when she saw T. It was hilarious to see! lol
Well, I do hope you are keeping well. Thanks for stopping by! Catch you all later!

I've been in a quiet mood as of late. I seem to be listening to a lot of older music ... music from my teens. Pink Floyd ... The Wall has been a constant play ... album style!
Just sitting ... quietly listening with Stella getting some lap time.
Thanks for stopping by! Catch you all later! Cheers!

On Monday, I had a wonderful opportunity to zoom sew with quilters from across this beautiful planet. It was great to meet new quilters. We chatted as we worked on our projects.
Wow! Looking at the picture and noticing how long my hair is .... Covid hair I guess! lol
Gosh, I came on at 2:00 pm and left around 10:00 pm EST. I worked on an EPP project, Star Quilt. As you can imagine I managed to get quite a bit sewn ... Progress is a good thing!
I've been plugging away. I'm really enjoying working on this project.
Hoping you are finding time to relax and work on your favourite projects. Catch you all later! Cheers!

Well, I think I may have found a bit of my quilting mojo. Last Sunday I decided that I "should" work on a quilting UFO. Let's face it, I'm quite a scatter brain at the moment ... no sense starting a new project only to get distracted ... Squirrel!
I went searching in my UFO bin and pulled out an English Paper Piecing (EPP) project I had started way back in 2016. The Project is called Star Quilt and it's from the book Modern Vintage Gifts by Helen Philipps.
I used the fabric line Sew Cherry 2 by Lori Holts. Love Retro/Vintage fabrics!
I first started to use this method for machine piecing rows of blocks. The number with the arrow are the row indicators, as well as the direction I'll press the seams. The other numbers are for the blocks sequence. This method keeps me from having to walk to my design wall and grab one block at a time. I've been using this method for years and it has never failed me!
