The weeks ahead and the list

I have cut the strips for the Bag Ladies 2008 Mystery quilt; 3 values of white with black, 3 values of black with white and a summery Robin's egg blue as a contrast. It will have to wait for sewing into strip-sets as some other projects are due over the next month.

There is a wedding veil, a wedding dress (different bride), postcards and income taxes all next on the list.

There is a small dry-erasable board hanging over the sewing machine. This serves as a great rolling list. I am identifying the next 5 projects ahead. As I wipe them off it is easy to add new items.

It is also time to pull out some smaller projects that need completion.

-a new Mini-Linda (version 2008) for the QP doll swap

-DD#2 made a superb lap quilt that uses her hand-dyed fabrics, all ruched and stitched down; it is waiting for a bit of binding assistance. The binding is a heavy woven wool, dyed to match.

-working on a UFO such as the Bag Ladies quilt that is currently a stack of 12 blocks tucked away on a shelf with sashing, binding and backing fabric.

-making the fun projects using my Amy Butler fabrics as well as the "red + purple" strip quilt.

- The Scrap Pile Website

I look forward to all these projects ahead. Maybe, just maybe, Spring will arrive and bring sunshine, flowers and "no-coats-needed" weather.
