A Spring In My Step!

I did some bonding with fabric and my sewing machine yesterday afternoon and evening :-) Yes, I was definitely smiling. That always amazes me.

I found a project for my Roman Holiday fat quarter bundle - took a quick run to the nearest quilt store for background fabric and started sewing. It's obviously not a difficult project but I am having fun. Another 'start' is not bugging me as I plan to see this one through to the end and hopefully that will push me to pull out one of those other 'starts' and get it finished. I'm not one to have so many UFO's - starting and setting it aside is not my usual MO. I'm not going to fret about it right now - just plod along and enjoy.


While watching my D'backs finally win a game last night I finished another Quilter's Journey block - I'll show that to you another day.

Thanks for visiting!

You Go Girl! Great start on a new quilt. I love the red paisley background fabric but then red is my favourite colour.

I LOVE it! Who cares if there are UFO's this must be done right away *s*

What a beautiful new project. I think that fabric is to die for. I have that too and want something to make out of it. Maybe I'll copy!!!

Nan said...

I love stars in just about any fabric! I think it shows the fabric off very well, not to mention your sewing talents - very pretty!
I may have to buy some of that fabric - it's lovely!

Love your Roman Holiday fabrics. I wouldn't worry about the UFO's -- you'll get around to them, eventually. (at least, that's what I keep on telling myself about mine!)
