Spent today making the label for my friend's quilt...on the embroidery machine.

Got my GoBaby out and cut some tumbler blocks for a kids quilt I am going to make for a donation quilt.  Found some charm squares ( I could use I bought from M* a couple of years ago on the DD), also found some 1/8 yard cuts from Keepsake Quilting (I bought two/three years ago) to use for the neutrals, now need to go to my whites and cut some tumblers from them.  GOSH, I HATE cutting into these...I have had them (3, 4 and 4+yards I have been SAVING!)  OkOkIcandothis.  Sew, why do I save these?  What was I saving them for?  Ultimately, at least in part, for THIS~  Gonna be cute but it's really hard on my MH.  

 GONNA BE HARD TO STICK TO THIS.  Goin to JoAnn's tomorrow to buy a 24 inch zipper for Fred's favorite fleece lined Carhart sweatshirt hoodie that he has had for years.  The zipper sticks...I sure hope I find LOTS of threads, notions, zippers, and maybe some GO dies and/or mats to help me to use these coupons.  I know if I Pet fabric and dream of FUTURE projects I want to do, maybe I'll be OK.  But, I can hardly believe I get at least 10 or 12 emails from fabric places EVERY day and I haven't caved.  It's already 1/3 into the month.  I think I need a tranquilizer.

LOL, Agnes!  I actually was typing that in a "tongue in cheek" way, but it does sound like I'm "hungry"..  I actually have decided to embrace the challenge and I am finding all kinds of fun and free patterns on the internet (Craftsy has lots of them) to use my stash on and I am right now going out to my sewing room and will finally make a list of 12 UFOs for this year, as well as take pics of my stash.  I have a tumbler block quilt in the works on my cutting table, but will get the list and the pics done first.

Just found out what our 2018 projects are from my LQG. 12 1/2" BOM - block of your choice with assigned colors. Red & white for Feb. I have fabric - looking for a couple of interesting blocks.

Getting ready for my 2nd quilt class on my new sewing machine. Teaching FMQ. Something I want to work on this year. Practice...practice...practice....

Making variations of this block in Blue and Whitish - trying to do a couple a month and then put it all together later in the year.

Sewed a quilt top yesterday and finished piecing 3 wall hangings.
I took the pictures with my iPad, so they are grainy and upside down. I haven't figured out how to fix thathttp://www.quiltingaroun...?aid=11391&pid=85491

Now I need to figure out how I want to quilt them.

So here I sit short anout t inches. Called the quilt shop where I bought it. They still had a bout a yard left so I’ll be heading over Wednesday to pick it up. In the meantime, I’ll finish the rows I have and get going on baby quilt 1

Today I'm going to start sewing my tumbler blocks together for the Charming Pachyderms baby quilt.  Hoping to get them sewn into rows at least.

I am getting my blocks ready to take a free motion quilting class next week and have discovered why my stash is so big.I hate to cut it up into blocks that are for practising on.Silly I know but I love each piece too much to waste it on a learning curve.I seriously need a quilting psychiatrist lol,someone who would kind of understand the attachment but talk me into letting go..hopeless ..sigh..

Mona I am so sorry about your Aunt. Prayers. Watching football and playing around trying to decide what to work on. Sometimes I just can’t get focused!

Spent this morning sewing scraps to some used Color Catcher sheets. Hmm, maybe that can be on my UFO list?

Right now I'm researching eggplant Parmesean recipes for dinner. Anyone have an easy favorite?

Mona, I'm sorry to head about your aunt.  I'll hold her in my thoughts and prayers as she goes through this bout of cancer treatments.

Darlene/2manyhorses...I completely understand your sentiments about your fabric stash.  I hope you can find your answer.  

As for me, I continue to work away on Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt clues.  I've been listening to books on CD's while I sew and it gives me delight knowing I'm killing two birds with one stone as they say.  

After reading crzyquilter's post...I'm hungry, lol!
