This is the last non-quilty post I'll do for awhile, I swear! I'm really aching for some new filler designs too, but I wanted to share a few things first:
It's the second day of the new year and I'm already making good on my first goal: finish the Winter Wonderland quilt.
Last night I stayed up till 2 am connecting the blocks and binding the quilt. It feels so wonderful to have it finished and ready to hang in the dining room once the remodel is over.
I'll post a final photo later once all the hand binding is finished!
Speaking of the kitchen remodel, the hardware store was running a sale, so Josh and I decided to splurge on these heavy duty organizers:
See the double trash can? I'm finally making a concerted effort to recycle! I've always recycled cardboard, but bottles and cans have been hard to keep organized and not messy everywhere.
Now with the 2 trash cans, I will be a recycling queen!
Also, with Winter Wonderland done, I finally feel free to work on some simple, beginner quilts to get my brain programed for the beginner dvd I'll be starting soon.
I've really had the itch to just work on simple, fun projects that I can easily finish in a day. Something about the instant gratification from finishing a project really feels great.
I've picked up some more fabric from fat quarter shop.com. They were running a sale, and while some might think this selection is ugly, I think they'll make great yoga pants.
So I'm off to go watch some old episodes of Torchwood, our new favorite show to watch on Netflix and hand stitch my binding down.
If I can finish it tonight, I can start basting one of my simple, cheerful quilts by tomorrow morning!
Let's go quilt!
