Progress...a good thing!

I've had a few extra hours this week.....so I made the best of the time....

My Christmas wool project has been on a bed just waiting to be pressed down for stitching.  I have had a block as to how I would get it done so I just moved onto something else!
WELL...about 3am I woke up and said "the island"....not sure why I made this such a challenge but thoughts while sleeping can be so helpful.....

I took it down to the kitchen, iron and pressing cloth in tow. I placed a tablecloth on the island and got to work!!!
The island has been such a helper when cutting but this was perfect!

All pressed down and ready to stitch....

Now to decide what thread to use for stitching....Valdani #12 or Genziana wool thread?????

This has been a fun project and I look forward to the stitching!!!

So....a good week - progress on may things, I will fill you in later.....

Have a great week - SMILE and hug someone that needs it to help get past this crazy winter!!!  Thinking of all of you in the cold....burr!!

Remember - SMILE always....

How many do I need....

Happy Thursday everyone!

I started on my "Go For It" quilt along from APQ....How many of you are doing the challenge?

Here is my meager start but - A START - :)

 I do love the fabrics and I love scrappy!!

I have no idea how big I will make it but for sure not a King size....I'm thinking about somewhere between a Wall Hanging and a Twin - only time will tell.
The little I worked on these today I can tell you - it is addicting!!!!

Let me know if you are doing the challenge and what your colors and size will be...

Happy Friday tomorrow and the a great week-end!

Be kind, be thoughtful and always share a hug!!!

Remember - SMILE always...

Picking fabrics for Temecula Quilt Co. Valentines Day Quilt!  "Hugs & Kisses" Should be fun :)

Off to have coffee with a friend....life is just good!

Have a super day and don't forget!!!  Share that hug....

Remember SMILE always....
