At a Cross Road
I finished up the proto-type bag for a class I will be teaching and it went out the door today. It will be used by that guild's program committee at their next meeting to promote sign ups for the class. I didn't take photos of the finished bag as some members might read my blog and I didn't want to spoil things.
And these are the scraps from some pattern testing I have been doing for the lovely Bea. Nope - can't show you this one either until she releases the pattern.
So what does one do when all things on the list are done ahead of schedule? I organize and take stock. This is my yardage - yardage!! As a scrap quilter a FQ goes a long way, but I seriously need to hit an end-of-bolt sale to restock these shelves. That big peice of muslin doesn't belong there, but it will soon be broken down into some projects coming up next month. Oh, on the top is different types of fuseables that I buy and keep by the bolt.
These are my fun play grounds - totes of FQs. It may not look like much fabric, but with these, those top shelves, and the fabric (specialty prints) in the rolling cart along side this shelving - I know there is probably 30 quilts right there.
This side is next year's play ground - yes, next year. As tempting as these are, they are going to wait. I have a lot of panels, layer cakes, jelly rolls, along with a few totes of neutrals.
There are 6 kits that have sat for at least 3 or 4 years. Lots of plush and extra wide backs to use with these future projects. My display board is blocking my two big rolls of batting in the corner as I have a furkid that loves to shred them. So I have plenty of batt heading into the new year, too.
What do I work on now? Do I start something new or do I tackle my daily lists for the next month and be super ahead of the game? Or maybe I should just clean my house.
