I’ve got a lot of stuff going on right now. Lorr has lasts ready for me. I need boots for a clinic I’m doing in January (www.axwoodlibrary.com). The comfy slip-ons I have are SO not going to work for that activity. Getting boots made is a priority.
I’m in the middle of building a sawdust stove (www.norishouse.com) so we stay warmer when the cold weather hits in February. Hopefully that will be done by this weekend.
I have a mariner’s compass to finish for LouAnn, a border to put on my confetti stars quilt and two bog coats to make, a simple reversible one for LouAnn and two-color one requiring quite a bit of applique/prep for my friend Mickey.
I’ve promised another bog coat in purple and black to Mindy with her farm logo, but it’s not going to happen right away.
I need an escape from all the complicated stuff, something I can mindlessly sit and sew while admiring the pretty colors without thinking too hard.
I’ve been planning a square dance quilt for my bed for a while. When I cut fabric for square dance blocks for borders I’d cut extra and add to my collection of fabrics for this quilt. It takes 106 to make a queen sized quilt and I’ve got 120+. This block is super easy to sew, pretty and just what I need to give me some busy work.
