Progress on Stars


Yesterday I got more work done on the Star Crazy quilt.  Today will be on to the left side border – just straight line rows and then back to the middle and start on more stars.


This is the area that needs lines drawn on and then quilted – I will work on this section today off and on.  The last several days I did not do 2 hours a day as planned – what can I say – I got busy with other things in the house.


Three more segments of Joseph’s Coat for this color and then the row will be attached.


The new table runner is on the table and for now the pottery jug is on it until/unless I find something else to decorate.


I stopped at Hobby Lobby yesterday to see what they had in the store – I hadn’t stopped there for about a month I think.  It is always nice to just wander through and see what is in there.  I picked out 4 stems of flowers to put in this vase that I have had for a long time for the table in the dining area.  It needed something fresh.  It looks like more than 4 stems but each had a lot on it – and half price Smile can’t beat that.


It looks like you all do pretty much like I do when it is time to de-clutter – pack things up and drop off at a thrift shop type of store.  I do that several times a year and I still need to de-clutter!!  What would it be like around here if I hadn’t been doing that for years! wouldn’t even like to think of that.  I actually do buy less and less over the last 10 years or so – it is all from the previous years accumulation I guess.  This year I will de-clutter even more though.

Do you make New Years Resolutions?  I don’t really – I never do it seriously anyhow.  I have intentions I guess you could say –

1-  like don’t buy fabric – use what I have
2- de-clutter
3- work more on the quilting to finish tops – don’t start many new in the meantime
4- exercise
5- eat healthier

Have a safe and Happy New Year Eve if you go out!  We stay home and off the roads.

    Beautiful stitching on your quilt. Your are moving right along.

    I love the table runner too and the quilt on your table. Those are just lovely!

    May God bless you richly in the coming New Year!

    Happy New Year!

    Wishing you a healthy and creative year to come :o) If I should set goals for the new year it would be more or less the same as you – get healthier, loose weight, excercise more, and last but not least – finish my quilts…. I tend to finish the tops and then start new ones, so as you I have to work on the quilting!

    Yep, you can tag my name at the bottom of your ”intentions” list, too. I never make resolutions either. Don’t want to set myself up for failure…. LOL!!

    Happy quilting in the New Year!!!

    Happy New Year!
    I usually don’t make resolutions but I’ve been thinking about a list this year and I’m with you…use the fabric that I have and finish up those tops.

    Probably mine would be to stay focused. It’s very easy for me to take off on tangents and getting nothing completed.
