Prairie Sticks Quilt Kit
My picture today is the latest quilt top.
I like to keep Quilt Kits at the lake house so that I don’t have to pack the whole house to do some quilting ….. although I will admit I pack a fabric suitcase every time.
This quilt was going to be so beautiful and on the small side. And it should have been a piece of cake to make …. but …. I was supposed to be packing to leave the lake house and I kept sneaking in my room to finish the quilt … and in doing so … I attached two rows … in the wrong direction. I toyed with leaving it for at least 30 minutes and I just can’t do it.
So, I need to get out my seam ripper and go to town. But you can click here to see what it will look like over on Fat Quarter Shop.
I did make one small change from the pattern … I decided to make my quilt square … it measures more like 50 x 50 (instead of 43 x 60). I’ll explain why when I get it right (there is a method to this madness … I think!).
New Years Resolutions
This morning Dave and I were watching the Today Show while drinking our coffee and they were discussing goals for 2016. I laughed out loud because every thing they said is on MY LIST. And if I accomplish one of them done …. I will be happy.
Which one it will be … I have no clue. But, if I didn’t have a full time job … I’m pretty sure it would be to eliminate all the clutter in my house and after that would be to lose weight. Although losing weight is more of a priority than anything!!
One goal I have is to be more consistent with my blogging … regardless of what’s going on … because I know when I share it always others and helping others always makes me feel good. As long as I can remember I’ve tried to teach my children that giving is the greatest gift in the world. I’ve also tried to teach them that most people are one way or another. I suspect that most people reading my blog are also givers (paper crafters and quilters are always giving people).
Another goal I have is to redesign my Chic n Scratch blog (it needs a facelift) but …… finding a trust worthy person is proving to be very difficult! I could seriously write a book on how many times someone has taken my money and not delivered. Personally, I could never live with myself if I did that … but kudos to those that can. I’m a firm believer in karma and I always tell my children never lie, cheat or steal … ever! You do not want to suffer the consequences!!
Oops … I’m a little wordy today but most of you that read this post to the very end … know me 🙂
Thanks for stopping by & Happy New Year!
