Yes, I have a basket full of stitching WIPs.....
Yes, I have hangers and racks full of quilt UFOs.....
.....but there is such an excitement in starting new projects which makes me do just that when I should be working on an old one.
My step~father made me two more wooden hornbooks and brought them with him on his visit. I have the first one stained and ready for me to design a new little sampler for it. Part of the fun of these is designing your own front. You can see the first one I made here. I will show you more as it comes along.
This is all I can show you of this project. My stitching list is have a secret swap who's theme is 'Good ol' Summertime'. The swap gift has to be handmade but can be anything. Then we also include a floss in a color that says summertime to us. Once this gift is finished and received, I will share the total photos of it with you so stay tuned.
After our stitching get together, I was just too tired to concentrate on my quilting or stitching. I have been wanting to try making square yoyos for some time now and thought this was a perfect time. It was something I could do without have to really concentrate. For my yoyos, I used a charm pack by Moda. It is 'Dandelion Girl' by Fig Tree Quilts. I love the summer look of these fabrics.
As you can see, the yoyos are ready to be sewn together. I will share a photo of the progress on this project with you next week.
In the meantime, my blogging friend Carolien is coming over this morning so I must be off. We are going to stitch and chat over tea and lunch. I hope you have an inspiring and productive Thursday!
