So where was I?
Well I have a Houndstooth quilt to complete piecing - probably a 1/4 of the way through ... time for Michael Jackson's infamous song to start jogging laps in my brain again - can't wait for that (note sarcasm).
|"It doesn't matter if you're black or white ..."|
Then I have a little one's elephant quilt to make with a touch of Tilda added to Madam it up.
There are some projects that I'm dying to get started.
The Sew Kitschy BOM at Quiet Play - the January block has already been released and I'm yet to buy fabric for it - oh the pain of shopping for fabric ... hand wistfully rests on one's forehead.
I have a pillowcase or two in mind for this cause:
Also my daughter is about to start "Big Girl's Kindy" - at the tender age of 4 she'll be trotting off to school (note to self to stock up on tissues). The school has requested that each child brings a small pillow to use during "quiet time". My daughter has requested a unicorn pillow.

I haven't joined any bees this year, but I have put my hand up for some testing so that should keep me busy along with my Farmer's Wife blocks of course.
I've hand pieced two more since my last post:
Block 65 "Peaceful Hours" .. "peaceful" my arse .. but it did take lots of "hours" so half the title is right. Still, it's done and done it shall stay.
|Block 65 "Painful Hours"|
|What a shocker - maybe this one will fall down into that dusty place between my sewing table and the wall, never to be found again|
The next one was a much friendlier block to make:
|Block 75 "Rosebud" - Squint your eyes to make the points in the middle meet :)|
So that's two more for the progress chart:
Phew! That lot should keep me busy for at least the first half of the year ... but I'm sure I'll manage to squeeze in some other projects too ... now who can I get to clean my house so I can fit in some more sewing?
