Right Now : :

I can't stop adding more projects to my sewing list these days. I'm sure it has a little to do with not feeling very well and needing to stay busy and positive. I'm also certain that it has everything to do with this weather. Cold, rainy?, windy, snowy. I don't mind having so much to keep me busy indoors, that's for sure. But at some point I might need one of you to say, "o.k. Maureen, stop!" :)

Here's a look at some of the photos I've taken recently -- the brand new, the finishes, and the still waiting.

I'm working on a second tutorial with Valentine's Day in mind. And oh, it's not a pillow!

Here are a few of the pillow and crown sets I shipped out this week -- orders that came through my etsy. Cute!

Then there's my scrappy quilt! I seem to only be able to take really bad pictures of this, I'm so sorry! I've finished two panels of three 20" square blocks sewn together, however the panels aren't yet sewn together. I'm not sure how many I'll make or how I'll arrange them just yet? I might need your help on that!

My hook of wips from last week. My mini has come along way, I just need to add the binding. Otherwise, each of these hangers represents another unfinished project so large, it needs to be hanging. Do you think I'm crazy yet?

Of course there's my Bottled Rainbows quilt blocks. I have them all hanging neatly behind the closet door above. Perhaps if I have them out where I can see them, I'll get back to them? Yes, that's what I'm going to do!

And yesterday, I received my Fly A Kite fabrics from Riley Blake! These lovelies will become my first tutorial for the Project Team and have me very excited to began yet another new project this afternoon!

Fly A Kite is here!

After all of that, I think it's best if I hear "Maureen, keep going!" from you all today!! It's busy, maybe crazy, but I do love it!!

p.s. Tomorrow I'll be having a new fabric giveaway sponsored by The Intrepid Thread! Here's a peek. Be sure to stop back!!
