2019 - Bring It On
I am looking forward to a new year and my primary goal is to make Pigs Fly! Pigs as in Projects in Grocery Sacks. Now I don't ever keep anything in a grocery sack, but I have a lot of totes full of them. These by the machine are blocks ready for a flimsy assembly or top needing a final border -borders, yuck.
The right shelf unit holds many totes and boxes of the same thing. Most of these are products of those darn squirrels that take me away from finishing.
This monstor is always staring me in the face. This is a cute laundry bag that now holds my 'gifted' scraps. His belly is so stuffed that he won't stay fastened to the hanger from all that weight. The kitty food bag a friend made for me and that holds all of my scraps of white, w/w, muslin, lights. These yellow companions are going to feed on of my RSC19 projects. Debbie of Stitchin' Therapy showed this Chandelier Block and I fell in love. Then Gene Black did a mock up of it with a dark background. I may have to make two quilts - maybe it will empty that monster.
Oh, the big totes in the back ground need serious taming as well. Behind the monster the clear tote has cut batting (that huge box with roll is now gone). Those are for the quilts in the other clear tote - waiting to be quilted. The dark totes - one holds my minky, plushy, flannels and the other holds all my extra wide backings.
And I seem to have a lot of bags full of bags. I get them from my gifting scrap folks. I think I need to put them in the shop and let people take them.
The left shelving unit is a little dismal, but you can see my shoe box totes are rather stuffed and they will be tamed with RSC as well - some color quilts for future donations. My books are usually neat, but I was looking thru them to pull one for the up coming Hop. The top shelf is my yardage whites and shirtings and I use them a lot thru a year. The second shelf is my 'yardage' - yes, laugh. I am thinking about Spring there will be a need to hit up a LQS 'buy the bolt' sale to restock this.
The white rolling unit to the side (there is two) are my SIL's things and that area needs some work as well.
I like to participate in the many Hops thru the year as it is great for inspiration, new creativity, and stretching the boundaries. Working on finishing up my Black & White project. Also, with these Hops I hope to share more tutorials as it has been a while.
I am going to try and avoid those wonderful QALS, but will always add them to the sidebar for someone else to enjoy. Those Squirrels are going to be chased away. I heard someone fall of their chair. NO it is all about the PIGS for 2019.
My you all have a safe and Happy New Year,
