WIPs vs Time

 A new Work-In-Progress — a lap quilt  – inspired by this book:  http://www.amazon.com/Simplify-Camille-Roskelley-Quilts-Modern/dp/1571209387.   When I saw what she did with her ‘Authentic’ fabric line, (and I just happend to have one charm pack of that fabric), the wheels started turning — and I started cutting and sewing. 

A modern style design – sort  of  a stacked coins, framed and set on a soft grey background.  The basic center blocks are almost all completed  — and, now I’m on the search for just the right shade of dark greyish/black Kona cotton to frame each block.  So much stitching fun — I think I love the ‘creating’ as much as I love the finished project.   

And, there’s more creating to do.  Here’s my stack of sewing Works-In-Progress, piling up on my sewing table — they all are vying for my attention.  There’s another quilt, summer pj pants for Joe-Joe, nightgowns and skirts for Laney, a quilt for a soldier in our family being deployed soon, and the list goes on and on.  So many patterns/ideas — so little time !!
