I have often wondered how some people can make one project at a time from start to finish. I am certainly not one of those! Sometimes I have to really hold myself back when I see another interesting craft or even a beautiful pattern I want to sew. So many projects, so little time as you probably can identify with. You may remember I crocheted a huge blanket last year ( or was it this year?) after ordering some gorgeous yarn from the UK and following a Crochet -a-long. I have done it again. Yep, I have ordered some more yummy yarn from the UK to make a more simple blanket from Attic 24 . Just like last time, my package arrived within 7 working days!!!!! The delivery man was quite amused at my excitement when I opened the door. Anyhoo, this is what I ordered. It is the Cupcake range and came in a lovely organza bag like last time.
I started it straight away.
I have traced and cut out heaps of elongated hexies for the filler blocks of my Lucy Boston quilt which I can't show you because the pic was blurry. As well as my EPP I have also got back to my American hand piecing project, the current little Civil War quilt which I put aside for a while. So, I have started to trace and cut out the many sashing strips and corner stones.
You see, I am taking all these things away with me next weekend on my patchwork group's annual retreat. I'm not saying I will actually get a lot done but I can sure try. I think lots of chatter and eating will be on the agenda and I am really looking forward to visiting a few patchwork shops on the way.
