I started two new quilts this weekend. One I won't show, it's for a wedding gift for my friend. It's really pretty though, trust me :) The other quilt is for a baby present. I have been wanting to do a aqua/orange baby quilt, and finally am :) Here is what I am doing, the quilt is from the Spring 2010 Quilts & More magazine. I'll be making a smaller version of it.
I found the drawing on the table, Jessie must have really liked the owls!
Also, I've been stitching, here is my progress on Plant the Seeds by Sam Sarah.
I'm going to go and sew some more! See ya!

I love all of the small details on it. It used so much thread, I don’t know how many times I had to go back to JoAnn’s to buy another skein of black, or blue! I could have had this done on Sunday but I was out of color 927, again, so it had to wait until today.
It was nice working on it because each block felt like a “finish” and it kept me motivated to continue working on it. Thank you to everybody who left comments on my progress, it helped me a lot to keep up the work.
This is going to hang in my dining room! I love it!!! :D
And yes, I’ve already started something NEW, it’s really refreshing to work on a different project.

Yesterday after work, I sat down and started working on my spring star quilt. I needed to get the top done so I could put it out at church on Sunday and people could sign up to make it. I finished the top! It took about 3 hours to sew it all together, all of the blocks were already done. It felt good :)
Most of the fabrics I used are from the Heather Bailey line called Freshcut. I’ve had them for a few years, and finally got them out. Heather has another new line out called Nicey Jane that is gorgeous. I haven’t bought any yet, but I plan on it! It’s so pretty. The February Schnibbles is Sunday best. I have an idea for the fabrics I will use, but can’t make a decision. Still mulling it over. And, last night I stitched 5 more fish on Shores, only two left now.
I’m going to go take some more Vitamin D now. :D

First up: Shores of Hawk Run, the last block. The fishes are going to take awhile, but it’s getting there! I need to get more movies to watch so I can finish this up…
Second up: The Spring Star quilt I am working on for quilt class. I hope to get this started with my class at the end of the month. Wish me luck in getting this top finished.
Third: Finding some new cross stitch projects to start when Shores is done. Can you tell I am excited to be finished with Shores? As much as I adore working on it, I am feeling ready to start something new…
In trying to cheer myself up, I made a list.
Things to look forward to this year:
We planned a vacation to West Virginia this summer, tickets are purchased!
The Lion King on Broadway is coming to Portland and I am getting tickets to see it, my kids will LOVE it. (I didn’t go to Wicked last year and am kicking myself for missing it).
I am doing some exchanges this year with friends.
***What the heck do I have to complain about???***
