Off to the quilter...

My Trip Around the World is finished and will be in the mail by Monday morning. Yippee!! I can't believe that I actually stuck with it and got it done.

Now, I've started a new project. I know....what a dummy! I have a million UFOs I could work on, but no, I have to start a new project.


It's gonna be a pretty one and it's one that I've been wanting to do for several years now. I bought it as a kit and I'm really disappointed in the company that assembled it. Very shoddy indeed! If this wasn't so old already, I would return it. Since I can't, I'm going to make it work regardless. It's easy since it's all big pieces just sewn together - once you get them all cut out. Fussy cutting (ugh!) I don't really know why, but I have never loved to fussy cut. I guess it's because I'm fairly frugal and there is so much waste when cutting this way. Of course, those extra pieces won't really go to waste - I'll find a way to use them. :)

Also glad you're back behind the sewing machine needle! Love the fabric in the kit, though I can't see the pattern clearly.
