Onward and sew forth!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) flannel pj's
(2) waking up refreshed
(3) hot coffee

My sister Ruby used to say it like this: "hot caw-fee".

There's just something about coming to the end of a mystery or project, when all the fabrics you gathered have either been used or repurposed, and you can use that bin for something else!

Ahhhhhh, Allietare!  Thanks everyone for your comments and encouragement.

Pieced and ready for the LA.

Since I have an abundance of left over 2" strips that will just overflow my bin, I've decided to continue on with the x and plus project that I put aside last October.

I'm over halfway done, so that's a good thought!

I had kitted up a few blocks that I saved between the pages of an old Quilter's Newsletter magazine.

Handy to just pick up the pieces and start sewing!

A bit over 65 done, working towards 90 for a full sized quilt.

I'll try to keep this as my main project til it's finished - that is, if I can resist the gorgeous easy-to-do blocks that Lynne is working on!

Happy Groundhog Day!  By now (just before daylight??) Puxatawny Phil is either still asleep or they pulled him out into the bright TV lights so he can blink and kick his feet.  Poor critter.

Sew forth and sew on til later - keep the sunny side up!


  1. The x&+ blocks are some of my favorites to do. That will be wonderful.

  2. I've not done the x/+ blocks and I do love their look. Great way to keep them kitted and saved.

  3. Looking good Linda, I still working to get my butt back in the sewing room.
