Focus, focus!!! that's what I'm trying to tell myself as lately I jump from one project to another and before that gets finished I start yet another new, totally unrelated project. Want to see?
I've been slowly making progress on HSTs for my value zig zag quilt. It's going quite well, but since I'm using all scraps for this quilt I constantly had to deal with giant piles of messy scraps before any blocks could be made.
So I decided to follow Lori's fantastic instructions and bring some much needed order to ALL my scraps as I go. It feels so very incredibly good to have them cut into ready-to-use sizes. But, all that cutting and organizing means a very slow progress on HSTs :(
I'm also working on my Woodland Sampler to keep myself from going "scrap crazy". I'm not that great at cross stitch and I make a lot of mistakes, but I love seeing these adorable woodland creatures emerging with every stitch. And I only have two more months, plus a bonus square to go before I'm all finished, yay!!!
I even persuaded my 8 year old son to join me and work on his own Grumpy Cat cross stitch (pattern bought here). I think he's doing an amazing job considering he's never done cross stitch before.
These projects, however, might be put on hold because I came across this totally amazing quilt by Kathy Doughty. It's from her newest book Making Quilts and I'm so in love with this grass green + scraps combination. I simply have to make a few of the blocks asap or the world as we know it will certainly end :)
See, I really need to focus or nothing will get finished at this rate. What are you working on?
Thanks for stopping by. Svetlana
