Projects on the Go.

We are in a deep freeze here (not unlike most of North America!), so today is an organizing/sewing/trimming of blocks day. I have, as always many things on the go, and many to prepare.

I am finishing off Brocante- a Schnibbles by Miss Rosie. This is a scrap quilt and will be a table topper.

Right now with Tony not working, I can't afford to get any of my completed quilt tops quilted so making Schnibbles allows me to do the quilting and have completed projects. My back just can't handle quilting anything much larger than a table topper size quilt. I am ready to lay this out on my design floor and get the top set out to my liking.

Next up is Imagine, another Schnibbles. This is mostly cut out, so will come together quickly.

And this week I used some of my Christmas $$ and bought Sewing Box by Gina Martin:

Beautiful rich colours, and I plan to make a wall hanging for my quilting room. I am going to make Spools by Camille Roskelley I may start cutting out to day or tomorrow.

Tonight we were invited by friends to go to Yuk Yuks, playing at our local town Performing Arts Centre, so are looking forward to that. It is in an old church, and quite small, but the seating/viewing is good- still the old pews.

Keep warm, and have a great week!

Glad to see I'm not the only one who hasn't finished Brocante. I was going to make it at a retreat last fall, but my charm packs had too many light fabrics and not enough darks. Do you think Spring will ever get here? While not unbearable, we're having an unusually cold and snowy winter. Stay cozy!
