Monday Making

Not only do I have FABRIC stash...
I also have a YARN stash.
😐😉😉
And....
It has to be DEALT WITH occasionally.

I have to put forth some effort in DEPLETEING
all that yarn!!

All those little yarn balls have to BECOME SOMETHING!!!

This is my little effort towards that goal.
A little something.
A small move in the RIGHT direction.

I'm USING yarn
and not
BUYING MORE!!!!
haha

(This is a toddler vest I'm working on
similar to the one in this post)

What are YOU making???

Monday Making

This week I will attempt to make progress on this old UFO
handed down to me.

The 16 dresden plates were sewn together...
but had not been appliqued.
I have finished six and today I was able to play around with CIRCLES.

What color will I use??
I also did some mock ups with some border strips.
Hmm.....???

Lots of quilty thinking ahead. 
My FAVORITE kind of think to THINK!

I am using 12" background squares.
A variety.

I fold them in half twice and press.


Then I center the dresden plate
and use a BIG stitch on my machine 
to baste it down.
Just two lines.
It's been working just fine.

I am doing needle turn applique all the way around the outside.

I will THEN go back and add the centers 
when I decide what color(s) I will choose.

I kind of like the mix of GREEN, BLUE, YELLOW
I have chosen so far!
:)
What are YOU making???
