The kit project has taken longer than anticipated, but I really don't want to pack it up and then forget about it.  So plodding along!

There are a lot of sub-units to make and then add to each round.  I am following the cutting charts and directions, but as I work I have the big head thuds - I know how to make things with quick methods to have sped this whole thing up!

Down to the last top/bottom pieces to add to each color way block.  These are made with 5 different sub-units.  So yes, it takes time to do each section up before adding to the block.

In trying not to get to bored by all the 'grey', I am making a few of the last section and adding to a block as a time.  Maybe with some gratification of seeing a completed block, I might be encouraged to keep that plodding going.

BUT - I do need a break from all that grey!

Look - color!  Oh, my, it has been a very long time since I worked on this.  There are just a few rows to assemble and then add to a partial flimsy there.  Maybe in keeping to my 'focus', I can get this one put together today and that box can get thrown out.

It's to be another hot, humid day with chances of severe thunderstorms in the mix.  A good day to be inside sewing.  A hand project is on the ready should we lose power.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. That kit project is going to be pretty.and love the plaids too. Good idea for the storm. It will be coming our way for the weekend grrrr

  2. I’m intrigued by your ‘color’ project. The blocks are slightly different from each other. Looks like scrappy fun. I’m eager to see more.

  3. The gray blocks are very pretty, it's a shame they are so annoying to make. Working on multiple projects is the only way I can stay motivated on those type of projects.

  4. I do love the look of the greys but I can see how they could be a bit boring to work on. Loving the colors of your second project. Good luck with the electric in the midst of the storms.

  5. Boy lotsa pieces in that beauty!! I like all the grayness--looks cool on this hot afternoon--lol--Our "Feels like" temp is now 112!! Ack--in the AC we are for sure...Very pretty project looking forward to seeing how it comes together hugs, Julierose

  6. Grey is hard for me to work with... I'd have to toss in some brights now and then to keep me at it!

  7. I certainly understand the boredom with the Gary's and black but I'm sure it will be pretty when it's done.
