I Survived!

2015 arrived and I couldn’t stand it anymore. I had not quilted since June, 2014. Six months!  No fabric!  No cutting mats!  No sewing machine!

December 4th we moved into our ‘new’ home.  A 1947 character bungalow, big windows, hardwood floors, big back and front yards.  The kitchen is updated but the bathroom upstairs NEEDS renovating.

Once everything had been moved in and we had unpacked most of the necessities, I started searching through fabric boxes for something to work on.  I really don’t have the room to get at UFO’s at this time, so I started a new project, of course!  I have always wanted to do a postage stamp quilt and one of the first boxes I opened was a box of 2″ squares and strips.  Decision made!

When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you collect?” They said to him, “Twelve.”

  1. Wow, I don’t think I could make it through 6-7 months without quilting, I’d be suffering severe withdrawal symptoms by that stage! 🙂 Looks like a great start on your new project – I’ve just picked up a similar WIP that was started over a year ago, and have now reached the flimsy quilt stage with it – I find it almost therapeutic sewing lots of little squares together, LOL! I look forward to more photos of yours as you make progress 🙂
