Stitchin' Weekend

I was reading That Girl That Quilt blog and saw she was sharing a tutorial or project that could be completed on a weekend. I liked that and even though I said this would be a year of "not joining" I decided that I would check this out. I decided to try her method of making HST's and this is what I ended up with:

It is made from Thimbleberries scraps and it is ready to be quilted. It is about 50" long and I will put it sideways across my dining table as it is too short to go lengthways.  I got this all done yesterday afternoon.

Then this morning I decided I need to do something about this creative mess...

I am working on that this afternoon. I realized yesterday that the Thimbleberries fabric I have had for many years is no longer to my taste, so I am going to enter it into the general scrap population- it no longer needs to be in it's own container.

This is a lot of Thimbleberries and I will use it for scrap quilts and quilt backs. Nothing wrong with it, just not what I like any more.

I do like to tidy up after each project but sometimes the lines blur when I have more than one thing on the go.

I might even get to vacuuming my sewing room today.

I finally signed up to follow you. I don't know what took me so long! I do like that you call that your creative mess. (Cute!) Your tablerunner turned out really nice! (How's the project for Dana coming along?)

My sewing room only stays clean and in order for about 15 minutes! I love the tablerunner.
