I didn't sew a lot in the last week. I mean...it IS baseball season...and I had chores to do. Oh yeah, and I guess I work for a living too. :p I did, however, get to the semi-annual Creativ Festival though and I picked up a little tiny bit of fabric I have been coveting. More on that another time.
I think I have mentioned before that I am trying to chip away at my 2013 Lucky Stars BOM. If I manage to get it done before the year is up, I will only have managed to be 36 months behind! Haha. I did manage to piece one of the small blocks using mostly scraps so I'm one step closer to being able to turn it into an actual quilt top. I WILL get this done this year. Maybe I should make it one of the finishes for the next quarter of the Finish-a-Long.
|I'm always happy that this messy looking gob of fabric...|

I have eight months worth of the 12-inch blocks but was missing a chunk of the 6-inch blocks and I'm beginning to remember why. All those teeny-tiny bits of fabric in the small blocks! So. Much. Concentration! I think I only have one more missing small block before I can have the joy of going back to working on the gigantic ones.
|Brought it upstairs with me so I can at least cut out the pieces while I watch the Jays beat the pants off the White Sox!|
AND....in news that's a bit more fun...I am starting a secret sewing project! SQUEEEEE!!!!! I happen to love both secrets and surprises! Here is a hint:
|Paper piecing is involved! I just kind of adore the precision of a paper pieced project!|
Let's see how long it takes me get this done so I can post it!
