The new year is starting off with a bang! I’ve gotten more done in the first 4 days than the last 4 months of 2012.
I finished 2 cosmetic bags, a wall hanging from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, a table runner and a mini quilt.
I also finally got around to using a charm pack of Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille. There’s no telling how long I’ve had it. Which brings me to this, after piecing the squares I started hunting for fabric for borders. Polka dots or some small flower print. Well I couldn’t find anything in polka dot and I didn’t even look for the flower print because I didn’t have a color that would work. So I scoured Etsy and came up with one of the gray floral prints in the charm pack. I don’t know what it was the made me hesitate but once I had the fabric in my cart I decided to take one more look in the stash. Then I found it, 1 yard of the exact fabric I was about to purchase! So now I realize, one my stash is not as organized as I thought and two I really need to stick to my self imposed fabric diet!
So goals for this year are, getting my sewing room more organized especially fabric and thread. My number two goal is to use what I have and donate what I can’t use. If I stick with it I should only have to buy batting. I do have a birthday coming up though and I don’t want my family to think I won’t accept a gift card or two from Joann! Lol
