Mixed Bag . . .

of stuff . . .

I've made some more progress on the "looking for sunshine" project. Getting it ready to complete now, so by Monday the final reveal should happen.

Prepared some more applique pieces for the next phase . . . seems like lots of phases in this applique stuff!

I decided that this little item has been spray basted and sitting there for way too long, so I picked it up yesterday morning at 6:30 a.m. and started quilting. Almost finished it by 7:45 a.m. but figured I should go throw on some dress clothes, brush my teeth and head to work instead.

So it was finished last night before 8:00 p.m. I thought that was pretty good for me . . . new motto . . . dive in and "DO"!

Surprising what you can get done when you put your mind to it. I like these fabrics . . . they are by Myra and Cori at Blue Meadow Designs for RJR Fabrics. Speaking of which - where are they? Haven't seen them out and about since about a month ago! Let's all stop over at their blog and say hello and Happy New Year! Blue Meadow Designs.
The wall hanging pictured above was not their recent Mystery Quilt that some of us participated in, but is one of my pattern test projects that's shown over in the right-hand sidebar called Shadow Stars. This one looks completely different done in Myra and Cori's fabrics and is just as striking . . . it's always nice to see what different fabrics do for different patterns.
So click on their link now and leave a little "hello".
'til next time,
