Starting fresh, nothing to report so far but lots going on. This has sure been a great way to really think about how large and unused my stash is. I am again going to stick to a no buy self-imposed guideline. I know there will be things that I need but I am not going to buy without a purpose.
I have made an investment though. I have wanted this for several years and kept watching for it to be on sale.....does not happen. So the next best thing was to wait until I could gather as much as possible "Quilter's Cash at MSQ. I looked every morning and TA-DA, it finally happened, I could get 10% and I pushed that button fast. Free shipping and a free Clover seam ripper (my absolute favorite) were also the bonuses.
I have been playing with it for a few days now and I am going to enjoy this.
Celtic Solstice has been revealed and I am in love with it. Here is my progress so far, all 24 A Blocks are complete and all components of Block B with 10 of 25 complete. Even though I trimmed and sized all the blocks, I am having a few issues with matching but in the end, with the busy pattern and after it is quilted, I don't believe you will see them. I will get it assembled today and tomorrow as I don't have to work on Monday. The Governor has declared all Minnesota Public Schools closed because of the cold weather. This has not happened for over 20 years.
I counted the tops I have to quilt and bind.....18!
That is the goal this year, to keep doing what I am doing and complete those this year so there are no UFO's hanging around.
Here is what January looks like:
1. Finish Celtic Solstice, completely
2. Work on Mystery quilt at Just Us Quilters
3. Do step #16 on BOM at Just Us Quilters
4. Finish 2 UFO's, have not decided which 2 but 2 small items.
5. Retreat last weekend of January, complete one top there and start another.
6. Secret project - needs to be at the magazine by February 20th.
All reasonable goals....now let's see if I can concentrate enough and not get distracted!
The other news, I won a Traveling Stash Box from Dee Dee's Quilts, it is on the way to me and you will also have a chance at it! Watch for more details!
