This weekend I'm leaving for a bucket-list class: a week with Gwen Marston on Madeline Island--her last class as she's retiring. I wanted to bring a lot of fabric choices but keep it cohesive and small so I'm not overwhelmed. This was really hard as I'm u

I'm so excited that this week's #ufosaturdays pick is #4!! Improv is exactly what I'm in the mood for. I'm making this quilt for my middle son out of thrifted shirts. I am challenging myself to use the weird leftover bits from cutting up the shirts--like
several pieces of art made out of fabric and paper on top of a blue surface
I'm having waaaay too much fun with this! I spent most of yesterday on the houses and all of this morning trying to figure out tiny stars. I would have never taken the time at home to putz around like this and it feels fantastic!

For #ufosaturdays this week I'm digging into an oldie! I have 52 of the 3.5 string blocks on the left that were to become Bonnie Hunter's Orca Bay. I grew tired of that and then thought I'd just do all string blocks. But then I didn't want to make 668

Last week I vowed to fix my stash closet so it would be more usable. Bins stacked on top of other bins and random crap everywhere meant I never put anything away until a fabric avalanche occurred and it was SUCH a pain to get fabric out! Not to mention th

Day three of the #mplsmqg in-town retreat. I pulled out another one of my UFOs and finished the top!! :tada::tada::tada: The next UFO Saturday it comes up I'll start quilting it.
I rarely buy my kids new clothes, but I got these pants for my daughter last year and she ripped them upon first wearing. :persevere::tired_face::dizzy_face: The rip was unfixable.
