Okay here's the loot picture Blogger wouldn't post from yesterday. I remembered a tip someone (Shelina maybe???) posted that said when blogger says the photo is done but it doesn't show up, copy and past the html from a previous post and change the photo name at both places in the code to the one you're trying to show and your picture will show up. And it did. :-) So thanks to whoever posted that tip!

The book and fabrics at the top of the photo are my kit. With the addition of 6 or 8 more fqs from my stash. I forgot I had already blended them together before I took the picture. I've now finished sewing all my squares into groups of 3. Tonight I can start sewing those into strips of 14 and 17.

Not sure what I'll do with the FQs. Bingo-Bonnie had asked if I was going to use them for Judy's hour-a-day project. Probably not as I already have a great autumn leaf quilt top. I think when I do hers I'll use greens for a summer leaf top. But that probably won't be for some time as I have other things I want to do first. There is another quilt in the book that came with my kit that I think would look great in fall colors. Just need to dig thru my stash and see what I can find to use with them because that pattern needs equal quantities of light/dark FQs and these are mostly dark. Or I could use them for something else entirely. I'll figure that out when I finish the top I'm working on now. No hurries - No worries. My new motto. :-)

I love that fabric you have as the main one - I have some in green and crimson, and a blue one. Kensington I think. Good to see you back Nancy - it seems like longer than 2 weeks.

yummy fabrics--in fall colors. I love the fall and all the colors that go with it. your little motto reminds me of the one that was so hard to get out of your head once you started humming it....don't worry, be happy! And you should be happy--and if taking your good old time, enjoying every bit of each process is the way to do it, go for it!

Just gotta get through the parade and festival with Ashley this weekend, then maybe a break for mom???? NO WAY--- now we have to start traveling to other pageants and fairs to promote her's and her crown, then on to Queen of Queens competition February 1. A take along project will be perfect....

great new project Nancy-whatever helps you enjoy your love of quilting is a very good thing! I know exactly what you mean by sitting around and feeling depressed at not getting projects done faster. As long as we need to work outside the home-we will just have less time to enjoy quilting, but it WON'T always be that way!!! thank goodness.
