We Now Return to Our Regular...


Two weeks ago  received a call of a cancellation in the surgery schedule.
I immediately went in for pre-op check in for getting some kidney stones removed.
Last week I had the surgery.
I am only NOW getting more mobile and I am grateful.  I know there are others in worse shape than me.  I just did not think this would land me on my butt and unable to act normally for over a week.

So now we return to our regular scheduled posts...

Just before I got sent for surgery, I was reading about the fires in Australia and wishing I could help somehow.  Then posts for quilt blocks to make quilts for those who lost their homes came up.  I sat down and sewed these just before my surgery.  It's a small thing, but I hope it will let those who lost everything that there are those who care, and they can rebuild....

The group organizing this is the Wollongong Modern Quilt Quild.  They have set up a facebook page for this undertaking should you wish to participate. #bushfireblocks

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

It's 2020, the year I turn 50!  AH!!!!

As with a lot of people, I'm feeling the need to organise and purge and make better use of my time.  I joined a 10 Day Orphan Block Challenge just after Christmas that has been interesting.  The concept by Becky at Patchwork Posse is to encourage us to get these unfinished things and do something with them.  Getting rid of the guilt and giving ourselves permission to get rid of them by either by finishing, altering the finished purpose or just plain getting rid of them if necessary.

So went into the cabinet and listed the projects I have put aside...

I have 49 listed projects!!!  AH! Again! This does not include all the ideas that pop into my head that have not had fabric assigned to yet!
I love her approach and have created a new list of UFOs for 2020.  Let's see how many I get done!  I will high-light as I get them done.  I've already finished one!

The Applique club I joined gave us a block pattern to make up for a BLOTTO at the February meeting.  I got excited and made 2 :)

What have you got planned for 2020?
