I just received my first Christmas fabric for 2012. It’s called Blitzen by Basic Grey. I just love it! It has some red, white, mint green, pear green, aqua and of course grey. I have a fat quarter pack and a couple of bolts of coordinated for borders and backs.
There are 40 fat quarters in the bundle and I think I can get 4 lap quilts from it. Wednesday is my volunteer day so there’s not a lot of time for sewing, but maybe I can do a little cutting. I’ve divided the fabric up into four piles, each with a pattern so the planning is complete. Once I get going it shouldn’t take too long to get it all cut up. Tomorrow is a free day so I could sew, sew, sew!!
Here’s my cutting plan.
I shouldn’t really say it’s a free day because I have a huge project in the works. This week is our monthly overflow garbage week and I always like to take advantage of that. This month I am cleaning out the closet in our bedroom. I’m pretty sure that hasn’t been done since we moved here almost 18 years ago! What treasures I am finding in there. I’ve gone through tons of clothes, shoes and purses and have gotten rid of lots of stuff. I pretty much took everything out of the closet and did a thorough dusting and vacuuming. It looks so nice now, but I have a lot of stuff to put back in. I’m planning a trip to Target this afternoon to get some storage bins to contain some of it. Hopefully I can finish this project today and spend tomorrow sewing guilt free!
