Progress!

I promised I would be back "tomorrow" to share progress on my projects. 
I didn't say which tomorrow.  LOL
The week end was busy so there was little time to spend at the machine.
 
But...there has been some progress  :-)

Lots of progress on my postage stamp quilt. 
I knew this would be a fun project but I had no idea how much.
 I find myself smiling as I sew, sew and sew. 

This is the beginning of my 'slightly tarnished project' ... Short Line.
Lots and lots of strips! 
Have you started looking through your stash in search of a 'slightly tarnished project'? 


The strips became little soldiers lined up waiting to become blocks. 
 
I hope to spend more time in my sewing room this week. 
I promise to share as soon as there's something to share.
 
Are you enjoying pieceful days?
 
In Friendship!

Try as I might, I'm just not "getting" what a "slightly tarnished project" is. Is it just me?

Yowza! I think I've just added another quilt to my list - it's gorgeous. I am completely smitten with simple patchwork.
And the colors in your Short Line project are going to make another treasure!
I am eager to get back to my Granny Square blocks, but babies keep arriving and I have got to find a way to get back to my sewing machine and work on baby quilts.
