I must be crazy!

I kinda have a resolution this year.  If I start a new project i have to finish an old.  It's ok if it stops at a top.  I call myself a topper!  So I started the Block a Palooza, twice in fact, and that means 2 projects need to get completed.

My mini baskets has been on my mind for a while that I started almost a year ago.  It called my name today.  While looking for it I had found another project I started about the same time.  That's what got my attention today.  I actually finished it to topper done stage.  So why am I crazy?  Because it needed more color and a border, and I think I only had scraps left.

Funny how one thing leads to another.  So that meant I had to find my mini scrap bin and then go through it to find those scraps.  Found both but the scraps were narrow pieces.  Here comes the crazy part!  They were only 3/4 wide!!!  I sewed them together into strata's.  I now have multiple strip sections that measure about 3 1/2 by 2 1/2.  I then sewed these together.  Ok almost twice the length, we'll just cut it into 1 1/4 wide.  That should be enough.  Just barely!  Good thing this is a baby quilt size, newborn babe size.   I  think it turned out pretty cute.  Binding will be done in the turquoise print.

I've called it Spinwheels.

Because of the 10" of snow today, store closed early so no work for me tonight.  The baskets will be the next project with the double wedding ring in between.  That one is for another post.  I have got to learn how to post my pictures from flicker somehow.

See ya soon,  Dona

I'm Back!

Well I bet you have been wondering what happened to me?  Lot's!  Lost a couple of computers...want to get them repaired because expensive software only works with xp and I'm not buying upgrades.  Laptop is hooked up to desktop monitor...finally got it working, how?  don't know but it works to get me where I need to.

Ok, now to find my blog...easy right? not! I have been searching for about a month.  Couldn't remember password, which email, etc.  Finally have it.  Hopefully this post works.

More quilty stuff will get posted soon...I just want to know if this works.

Until then.....Dona
