Taking A WIP Detour

I am feeling better this week about all of my WIP's that had started to pile up.  I just cleaned off my work surface and feel ready to create again.  Out of sight, out of mind - right.

Well, I did finish a Sew Together bag and all of my Fancy Fox blocks, but I still have a ways to go with my other projects.  

I also started and finished a new project.

I finished 2 pillowcases for #theselflessnessproject on Instagram benefiting the Shriner's Hospital for Children.  The goal of this project is to donate 100 pillowcases on Valentine's Day.  

I have been phasing novelty fabrics out of my stash, but thought I would use some of this Star Trek fabric I have been hoarding.  I think it turned out fun.

Linking today to Sew Some Love, a new Wednesday linkup to share your charity projects.

Scrappy, But Fancy Foxes


I just did a quick count of the projects on my work surface and it is 6.  Yes, 6 projects right here on my table.  I keep wanting to start something new, but I think it's time to tackle the growing stack of WIPs (Works In Progress).

During the Christmas season, I asked for scraps and wow, did I get a bunch of scraps.  There was almost no need to sort them by color because they were overwhelmingly blue.  

I thought that all of these varied blue scraps would look fun as foxes.  I have almost enough finished to make my first charity quilt top for 2017.  It doesn't have a home just yet, but I am sure that it will find one soon.  I have a feeling that it will be ready for an upcoming quilt drive for children with cancer.

Maybe if I can get focused and stop thinking about new projects, this will be my first finish of 2017.  

Linking today to the new linky party on Wednesdays at Kat & Cat Quilts for charity related projects.
