PULLING FABRIC.....

 I decided to dig out my Red Work pieces and see what I can do with them.  I've had these for years.  It's time to do something with them.  


They are all baskets with flowers.  Now to decide what to use for the filler blocks....I've got some pretty new red fabric...but which one to use.  The picture makes the fabrics and baskets look pink, but they are red..What do you think?  Let me know what you think.

FINISHED OR UNFINISHED......

 I've been working on my Frog quilt...this is what it looked like. I took it apart and made a few more different colored frogs and lily pads. 

This is what it looks like now...I call it the Frog Mess...cause it's a mess right now. 


 It started out as a Wall Hanging, but I liked the way it was turning out...so it is now going to be a quilt.  I've been working on it...still have lots to do to get it to a flimsy.  But I really like the process of applique and embroidery....and i like figuring out the way I want it put together.   I'm sure every quilter goes through this process.  But before you get there, it's a lot of sewing, laying out, and figuring out how you want this project to come together.  So for now this is my main project I'm working on.

I'm also working on my Tile Quilt...still adding strips to the pieces..I laid it out this week to see what needs done..I need a few more blocks..so I'm still making blocks and adding strips.

 I'm also keeping track of my stitching time this year.  This is what I have so far for January:

15 minutes per day this week = 7/7 days
15 minutes per day in January = 21/24 days
15 minutes per day in 2021 = 21/24 days

TO - DO......

 I've been kind of obsessed with working on 2 projects this week.  But, I'm getting ahead of myself.  My To-do list last week.

January 12th through January 18th

1. Sandwich, tie and bind Sunbonnet Sue. 👎

2. Cut stripes for Tile blocks.✔

3.  Work on more of the Frog blocks.

I didn't get Sunbonnet Sue sandwiched.  I just can't get in the mood to do this.  So Sunbonnet Sue, Overall Sam, and the Teapot quilt is still laying on the table waiting to be finished.  At this time, I'm working on the Frogs and Tiles Blocks.  I started putting the stripes on the Tile Quilt.  I really like this color for the stripes.  Don't know where or why I bought this fabric, but I really like it.

The frogs are coming along.  But I'm going to have to rip it apart to re-arrange the colors.  Too many green frogs and lily pads. I've also got to put more embroidery on the lily pads...so Sharon's Pintagle is the perfect place to find those embroidery stitches.  Head over and check her place out, she has a stich dictionary to find any stitch you want.  So, this is where I am now...

So this is what I've been doing for the last 2 weeks.  What have you been working on??

To-Do List for 

January 19th though January 25th

1.  Work on Tile Quilt

2. Work on Frog Quilt

3. Sandwich Sunbonnet Sue, really, NO EXCUSES!!!

SCRAPPY QUILTING.....

I've been working on 2 projects this week.  It's kind of in the slow progress right now.  Putting strips on them .  One I'm making stripes around them.  It's the Frog Quilt.

I'm using my scraps of greens to make the stripes around the frogs and lily pads.  This started out as a wall hanging, but I liked it so much, I'm now making a quilt.  

The other project I'm working on is the Tile Quilt.  Started putting the stripes between the blocks.  I asked for suggestions on a color scheme last week, and I really like the color I'm using for the stripes.  It makes the blocks stand out better.

So that's what I've been doing with scraps this week.  Hop over to Oh! Scraps to see what everyone is working on.

PINK SATURDAY.....

 Is anyone doing the Rainbow Challenge?  You can find out more about this over a So Scrappy....I'm sure a lot of folks are.  I'm doing this one too.  The month of January color is Pink...Last years challenge was way too much for me.  So I'm doing one block a month.  I might get this one done on time and finished.  This is my pink basket.  

Just waiting for February to roll around so I can do the next basket.  

What I'll be doing today....Cutting stripes for my Tile Blocks...want to get this done, so I can make some more Tile blocks.  I really hat having to do away with all those tiny scraps you can't use anywhere.  Hope you all have a great scrappy....
