There is something about January that motivates me to finish what I've started. A clean slate, perhaps?
While reorganizing my sewing space to add a nifty "new" item (I'll share later) I unearthed a project that I love but was stuck on. So I put it back on the design wall and it spoke to me.
My yummy green Hoosier cabinet is where I store the majority of my vintage linens. It's a happy place to play and I found the perfect fabrics to help me finish the project in the previous photo. I will be playing a lot more with my vintage treasures this year. They've been patiently waiting.
There are things I would like to accomplish in the new year without over committing my time. For those of you who would like to play with strings this will be low key. You really don't even need me. I'm not setting a time limit, there are no rules, or sign-ups and I opted not to make a badge or blog button -- I'm just making string blocks/projects as time allows. I'll share my progress when there is some.
If you were hoping for something more formal I think there are probably other "challenges" out there for you to seek and find. This will be just me and you, if you care to join me. So let's start diving into our scrap bins and get sewing. If you complete a project and share it on your blog I'd love for you to send me the link so I can stop by.
A couple of years ago Fave Quilts contacted me and asked to post my string block tutorial. I got an email recently that my "tutorial" made their list of Top 100 Quilting Projects. If you've never visited they have a wealth of goodness there.
