Day In Life
As a result of my ongoing organizing effort, I am faced with the reality of “New Year Same Project(s)” situation!! I see projects I started before Miss Baby was born, and she is turning 9 this year… that shows you how old some of my projects are.
So this year, I will working to reduce the reality of New Year Same Projects situation in my life! Here is one that I will be working on for the next two months. This projects uses almost all the blues out of the 270 Aurifil offers for embroidery floss. The pattern is Bois Le Duc by Long Dog Samplers for those who are interested. It is a sampler based on historical Dutch sampler motifs, many with Christian symbolism.
I can only work on this a few minutes when I get some down time. One thing I find that has helped is to always make sure my needle is threaded when I stop — so that when I pick it up again everything is all ready to go.

Upcoming quilt news
Miss Baby was always fascinated in plants and such (including dandelion!) when she was three, and she still is now!
I have designed this Make A Wish quilt a few weeks ago using Windham Fabrics’ upcoming Botany fabrics. This quilt celebrates girl, and is inspired by Miss Baby, who can never pass up the chance to blow on a dandelion! The girl even has the hair much like Miss Baby’s usual hair style!
Please note: This will be offered as a kit by Windham Fabrics! Pattern is part of the kit. And since fabric line doesn’t run indefinitely, if you are interested, you should get the kit while you can, and while it is offered. Ask your local quilt shops to contact Windham Fabrics about Make A Wish kits. Kits won’t be out for another couple of months, so be sure to check back on this site or my Instagram page for updated information.
I have received many emails asking for past kit patterns. Unfortunately, those patterns for kits are often not available after the kits are gone. So, if you see something you like, the thing to do is to get the kits before they are sold out.
With that…. I shall close out today’s post…. but not before I share with you a New Year Same Project situation that I proudly maintain in my life: spending time in God’s Word! Blessings to you all!!
