quiltathon progress

Judy is hosting a quiltathon this weekend.....go on over and check out what everyone is up to. So far I've pieced a 30" baby quilt for my newborn charity group. Tonight is family night so I'm done for today. Since I have the whole day tomorrow to sew I'm hoping to get a couple more pieced. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.....thanks for stopping by.

I've been working in my sewing area...... cleaning, sorting and rearranging. It's almost where I want it to be. Found a few projects that I'm hoping to finish up. I haven't used any stash this week and I haven't added any. I plan to use up some fabric this week for sure. :)

this week: zero in and zero out
net use for the year: 6 yds

stash report week one

Nothing in and nothing out but I am working with a grab bag of fabrics that I got from the Fat Quarter Shop. I figure there is about 6 yards of fabric and I plan to use it all up in some donation quilts. I'm looking forward to busting lots of stash on donation quilts this year.

Happy New Year

I wish you all a new year filled with much love, happiness and enough of whatever makes you smile.
I've spent the last week or so making plans and goals for the new year. Besides the usual lose weight, exercise more and eat healthier, I have goals to grow my skills in photography and quilting. Since I'm such a good blogger....haha....I thought I would add a second one. I'm attempting the challenge of taking a daily photo of something in my day and journaling about it. I sure hope to last longer than a week or so. :)
I'd like to grow in a more creative direction with my quilting. I would like to make some portrait quilts and really nail down being able to quilt some gorgeous feathers. So I plan to practice and be fearless in honing my new skills. In case you care to peek at my other's my 365 day challenge .
I've tried doing things today I love....reading, sewing, knitting and some computer stuff. We'll see where the new year brings us. Thanks for stopping by.....I love it when you do.
