Black & White

This is my latest UFO. I am working on a black and white Chinese coin quilt. Most of it is fabric from stash. I did buy a couple more just to have some more variety. The red that you see on the edge will be the the sashing between the strips and the border. Joann's has had their calicos for 40% off so I went and bought the musical fabrics for the back. I plan to take this to the LA'er as soon as this is completed. Hopefully that will be in the next couple of weeks.
I have started back to school. Just two more classes and I will be a graduate!!! This term is managment science and will be over in 5 more weeks. The last class will be an economics class. I only have to attend 24 more classes! Yes, I am counting them down. Graduation is May 3rd. YEAH!!!!

Posting One Year

One year ago today I started my blog. It has had ups and downs but I am glad that it was started. 2007 was a slow year for completed projects and sewing in general. But there will be big changes in 2008 which should give me time and energy to get back to it. I spent today unexpectedly cleaning up my sewing room. How can you sit at the machine or cut at the table if you can't walk in the room? Clutter does stifle the creative process!!!! However, you have to sew to cut down the fabric stash so the cycle continues. It does reinforce the "no-buy" concept. I need to reduce the stash before adding to it. I am getting ready to go sew something tonight...working on hemming the fleece throws. Does anyone have any other ideas on how to finish throws...other then hemming and fringing? Anyway, looking forward to a great 2008! May we have lots of creativity and sewing!!!!
