Slow Sunday Stitching!!

This is the pattern I pulled out of my first "clean up" box!  So fun to be working on it this time of the year!!  And since the government has taken away my opportunity to go to Church these days, this is a good reminder how important Independence Day is and how precious and how fragile our freedoms are to us!!

I Started Playing a Game . . .

to see if I can clean up and straighten up all the cluttered boxes I have sitting around.

The first thing I decided was that, except for the fabrics I have on bolts and the larger flat pieces, I am cutting everything up into 2-1/2 inch lengths.  From there I can make lots and lots of different quilts.

I take a box of "stuff" - fabrics, patterns notions, etc and dump it on my cutting table ~

Then I go through it and see all the fun stuff that has been boxed away for way too long and I sort through it.

If it's fabric, I cut it up - here is a batch of random 2-1/2 inch lengths (from a previous box) ready for whatever.

If there is a project that I have started, I will keep it out and work on it as I am able. This is one that I started awhile back and thought the 4th of July weekend was a perfect time to work on it!!

I am trying to not to pick and choose - I am trying to work on each box and complete everything in it before I go onto the next box.

I will be working on the pile at the top of this post tomorrow!!  I am still working for the 2020Census but there is a lull right now and so I have a bit more time to do the things I love!!

Slow Sunday Stitching . . .

I have been working on this piece since January 1, 2020 ~

It is a Mystery Sampler SAL on Linen and Threads, a Facebook group I belong to!!  I chose to use a multicolored silk thread from Australia because I do not have the color-sense some of the women in the group have and since I would really like to finish this one, I made it a bit simpler for myself.

This is January's section except for the little piece down in the left-hand corner.  That is February's and I am working on it today!!  I'm a bit behind!!  LOL!!

I am hooking up with Kathy on Kathy's Quilts.  Come see what everyone else is working on during this Shutdown time!!
