Blogger inspiration

So many of you have posted how you are finishing out the year to enter 2007 by cleaning your sewing space, finishing up projects and so on. (sew on??) Some are even putting away their holiday decorations. You have been an inspiration! Today I have done a little straightening in my sewing room, prewashed some fabrics for upcoming projects, ironed some of those. Packaged fabrics and notions/instructions for a given project together so I can find everything when I get to that project (some of these are once a month type things that I will be going back to on a regular basis, good to have it all in one place). The reoccuring projects are all in one place for easy grab and go.
I have done the latest Buck a Block, which I picked up on Wednesday along with fabric for the quilt my DIL wants for next Christmas.







I also did the latest round on the Ostrich project from Peach Quilting. That one isn't turning out as well as I would like, oh well, its just a fun exercise, and I will learn something from doing it.



















I wish you all the Happiest and Healthiest (and Quiltiest) New Year Ever!

Sounds like you are off to a great organized start to 2007! Happy New Year!

I'm a firm believer in the philosophy that if you learned something in the process it was all worth while. If you don't like the finished project you can always donate it to charity. I like your latest "Buck a Block".

Happy New Year to you too!

I love the colors and fabric in the Buck a Block. The layout is cool too.

Happy New Year to you! I should be cleaning in my sewing room. Instead I've just moved my sewing machine to the kitchen table so I can make string blocks instead. One day soon David will get tired of it and "suggest" maybe I should clean the sewing table off. LOL! I really should get it more organized in there so I can sew on the spur of the moment again. But for now I just want to make string blocks while my enthusiasm for the project is still high.
