Decisions



I have been so self-disciplined the last few days - no new 'fun' projects until I get the custom order for the embroidered panel on the bedspread finished. It is about 45 minutes from being completed. (I am sitting here with one eye on the machine and listening for strange, forbidden sounds.) And now the decisions, which one do I play with next?












Here are my choices of new, unplanned color groupings. Which would you dive into first? Interesting question isn't it.












I have my jelly roll sampler block cut and ready to assemble - maybe that should be first. Or then there's the applique sunset garden - ready to be appliqued then quilted. Or the morning mist is staring at me from the design wall saying 'you promised that I would be next.'



Why do we do this to ourselves? I am really, really surprised I was able to not pick up anything else until I finished the bedspread. (Is that a double negative? I don't care.) More than likely, it was the self-imposed deadline that made me stick to it.


Whatever it was - it's finished. AND NOW I CAN PLAY!!!


By the way "Hollyhock Gardens" has been renamed "Fractured gardens" and has been posted to Etsy. Please give me your feedback on this beautiful wall hanging.


Thanks for visiting in my world. Hugs to all!

  1. No question as to which fabric to play with next.
    Hands down, it has to be the hot, hot pinks.

    No question about what fabric to work with next. Hands down, it's gotta be the Hot, Hot Pinks.

  5. The pinks have my vote too, but I'm a pinkaholic, so I am biased :) The last one, the browns would be my next choice, you know, because I know you wanted to to know that! I love Fractured Gardens. Great work.

    I'm still working on my hygrangeas...and I promised myself to finish sewing two big runners today. SNORE, but sometimes you gotta do...

  6. My sister helped me pick out the browns in CA at the holidays. I love the play of the pinks on the chocolate browns.
