I got this step stool several years ago from friends who were moving out of state. I took it not only because it’s my favorite color but w/the intention of refinishing it.

When I found this lovely canvas print at Goodwill around the same time, I knew it was meant to be.

I just didn’t think it would take me 3 years!

But I can now tick this off my “To Do” list!

I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word. – Psalms‬ ‭130‬:‭5‬ NLT

Finding My Sewjo

I did make some sewing progress in Michigan.

This is one of four WIPs I aim to finish by year’s end. 

My Halloween Spider Web quilt.  Even though I started it over a year ago, I arrived in MI w/a whopping one block finished.

I managed to get all my star centers cut out and finish three more blocks.

About a week before my trip Katy reminded me about her longarm and Accuquilt and suggested I bring a top to quilt and fabric to cut.

I didn’t have a quilt top finished but I remembered an older WIP, not one of the four previously mentioned, that I had started for my sis. It was about half completed, so I quickly finished it to have something to quilt.

And quilt I did! I used the Malachite panto by Urban Elementz.

And I brought lots o’ fabric to cut! I now have four projects in the queue for 2018.

It sure feels good to be sewing again!

Thanks for stopping by.

Congratulations GayLee!  You are # 8 and the lucky winner!  Please email me your address asap.  I’d like to get your prize mailed out on Monday.

Next order of business is about the 2016 UFO Challenge I’m participating in.   March’s number is 6.  My #6 project is a Spiderweb quilt. I was inspired to make one after seeing Julie’s gorgeous creation pictured below.  Something tells me that I’m going to end up w/more UFOs than I started with!

I’ve got a good list of  things to do this month.  Besides work on the Spiderweb quilt, I’ve got to make a gift quilt, several small items for a craft sale taking place in 2 weeks, sew a sleeve and label on Gossamer for the Arizona Quilters Guild Quilt Show, finish 2 test projects for Kids Camp, AND start a commission for 2 baby quilts! Pray for me y’all!

Now it’s party time!

A Thread for Life
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.Phil 3:12-14 NIV
