So... I decided to organize......

Which is something I really shouldn't do!! We will call it inspiration and distraction and lets start a new project, and oh wait - should I work on that one too???

And ! Wow! I have a few piles and a lot of ideas, and I may have started some new things, and decided to finish some others - and its the BEST!!!


So let me walk you through the *projects* as they are......


This was  a HUGE box of strings strips and other pieces - I dumped it out

and now... It is this!!

Which Inspired me to have our QOV Sew group make some of....




These!!


and then!! Because we got a lot started 
and a lot finished
I kept working on them - 
and now
I have about 45 more in process
( you need 48 for a whole quilt)

( and don't look at that pile of log cabins behind the scrappy ones!! That's even another project!)


but!!
Before I can put them on my design wall
I need to finish this one!!
So they are all rowed now -
Just need to iron and sew the rows together



But then!!
In my stashbuster group - Liz is hosting a sew a long called Steppers
and you needed 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch bricks

and I had some plaid sitting in a bucket

and now I have a lot of bricks
ready for step 3

( I actually got step 2 - the bricks stitched - done!)




and then !
In my Quilt of Valor group
We are doing a  block for May-July
so I had to re draw the directions
( my other ones looked yuckky)
and of course!



I had to start sewing them too!



I don't even want to show you the projects I have planned under my sewing table,
cuz you will laugh and tease me
and then I just might have to start a nother project!!

Ha!!

I had better get to working on these so that they all don't have to be quilted at the same time!

Hahaha, you had several squirrels visiting you in this post! I love that you are just like the rest of us, hehe. I know every time I try to do a little clean up it just causes a rolling stone effect. But sometimes we need that to get our juices flowing!

I loved your pictures and comments. Now I want to dig around in my quilting space just for the fun of it!

This frenzy is not unusual. I think most quilters work like you. Well, I do anyway!! Can we join Liz's QAL? Sounds interesting! Thanks.

I'm interested in Liz' sew along also. It sounds fun and simple.

You've made a great start on some fun projects.

One thing leads to another . . . and in this case the results are fun! I like the spiderweb/kaleido blocks.

I love when squirrel projects are so cute! You sound like you are having fun and that's what counts!

The risks of cleaning your sewing area. :) Looks like you have some fun projects to work on now.

Ranch Wife said...

The scraps are flying and your sewing machine must be smoking! Goodness you are on a roll! Please tell me that you are making a visible dent in your fabric stash.
