Life Continues On

 Well it’s been almost 2 years since I wrote up a post. I have been sewing some projects in the last couple of years but we’ve also been building our house! We just recently moved in last month and there’s still a couple of things left to do but I’m finally feeling settled after living in 600 sq ft for over 3 years! I’m still trying to get use to all the space that we have now. We have about 2500 sq ft now so it’s a huge difference! I do love my sewing space though. It’s no where near organized but it’s set up well enough that I’ve been able to work on some projects. 

This is a quilt top that was made up of various scraps that I had for years. I can’t remember exactly when I finished the top… may have been over 5 years now. It was in my cedar chest just waiting to be quilted! Since I haven’t quilted on my midarm for a couple of years, I went with swirls because they are comfortable and like second nature for me. I’m a little bit rusty but I was still thrilled with the final product. 

Now to get the binding done….

Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal

I decided to start the New Year off with a little bit of goal setting. I came across Elm Street Quilts through my friend Anja’s Blog, Anja Quilts. I’ve been incredibly absent from the world of blogging over the last 18 months. We moved across the province and are currently in a very small space while we build our house. Construction will start this spring! On the upside, designing my own sewing space is somewhat exciting! Needless to say with the limited space, my sewing and creativity has been a bit on the back burner.

So I’m signing up for One Monthly Goal to motivate me to sew more! My monthly goal for January will be to catch up on Fat Quarter Shop’s Summer Moon BOM.

I am currently on Month 6 and Month 8 is on it’s way to me. So my goal this month is to complete blocks from Month 6 and 7 which will be a total of 18 blocks. There will be six different patterns and each block will have three sizes to do.

Hope I can get them finished this month! Fingers crossed!
