Goodness! It sure did feel odd to sit behind my sewing machine again after so many months. Usually I feel out of sorts if I am unable to stitch after 3 or 4 days. Its a wonder I haven't gone off the deep end after 4 months. Well, I am happy to report that I stitched a bit the other day. I finally unearthed one of my many UFOs and began making progress:
I spent an entire hour stitching. That doesn't happen very often and there's no telling when it'll happen again. I have 4 new blocks to add to my pile though:
I am going to love this quilt, and I have no idea why it always gets put on the back burner. I have 33 blocks pieced now:
and a box of pieced strips:
The original pattern called for 36 blocks, but I am making it bigger...surprise, surprise. :) The size will be determined by how much of that brown fabric I have. This pattern was the cover quilt for the October 2010 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting and the minute I saw it, I started pulling fabrics for it.
Here's hoping it actually becomes a quilt this year.
