Let The Games Begin!
Now that I have had time to re-evaluate the purchases, desires and craziness of market...I decided the best approach was to finish a UFO first...that way I can feel good about what ever I decide to do...new project or old project. In looking at all the project boxes in my Command Center closet I chose the 2011 freebie BOW that Lisa from Primitive Gatherings...I was almost done and then got distracted in that Labrador Retriever kind of way. I love it and it fits the great room perfectly!
I had stitched all the pennies but 4 and so I finished those up and then attached them to each other.
Now for the tough decision...what new project to start. One that I found at Quilt Market or one that already lived in my sewing room??? Then I remembered a project that captured my attention from Primitive Quilts and Project magazine. It was a cute wall hanging by Laural from Simply Put Plus who I met at market. If you have been a Woolie reader for a while you will remember when I was in the throws of building, packing and cleaning I was so stressed that ordered a kit for a project featured in Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine. I rationalized that since the pattern was "free" in the magazine that the kit was worth the investment. When it arrived I never opened it and just packed it for moving...well, I decided to open it! I have already made my first spool block and am in love! All I can say is if you want to subscribe to a magazine...Primitive Quilts and Projects should be the one...and if you want to invest in a kit, Simply Put Plus is the site!
All the fabrics are labeled which makes it so much easier to figure everything out! Thank you Laural!
