Something for me

Sadly, Martina's Poetica quilt is still a WIP.  I had hoped to have it finished by February's end -in fact, it was my ALYOF project for last month.  But I became a little overwhelmed during the block setting process.  The top looked crazy busy, and my little lady does not want sashing, which I was thinking would tame things a bit.  Having to make up a few more blocks further dampened my enthusiasm.

So I'm taking (another) break from that project and will start one for myself.  The goal is to have the quilt top pieced by my birthday mid-month.  I'm calling it "41" for several reasons: the design, it's the name of one of my very favorite songs, and one other reason that shall not be shared (though anyone could probably make a fair guess).

Here are the gorgeous Sis Boom fabrics earmarked for "41", which is my March entry for A Lovely Year of Finishes:

Many of these have been stashed away for a while.  It's time to make them into something pretty.

  5. It's perfect time to make some plans for the longer term and it's time to be haρρy.
    I've learn this post and if I could I wish to counsel you some attention-grabbing things or advice. Maybe you could write subsequent articles relating to this article. I desire to read more things approximately it!
