I started on yet another new project yesterday. This is one I've been planning for ages, although I'm not entirely sure it's going to turn out like I think it will. I'm using some of the brightest happiest fabric in my stash, about half of it brushed cottons (look like fabric on one side and sort of flannely on the other). Right now I'm at the stage of sewing strips onto 4" lengths of paper.
I really need to get working on this project and get something finished today since I'm leaving at Oh Dark Thirty (translation: too darn early) tomorrow morning for a trip to Amsterdam. I'll be meeting up with my friend Will and we'll be staying with a friend of hers who also happens to be friends with Lucy who is friends with Bonnie who will also be visiting the Netherlands. Not that we have much overlap, unfortunately.
I've been to the Netherlands several times before, so this trip isn't for sightseeing, but just about quilts quilts quilts. I'm excited about the trip but also sad to be leaving my husband and kitties all by themselves so close to Christmas.
Little Pokey in the bowl that I finally unnearthed beneath stacks of fabric.
