February Goals and Sea Star
I couldn't wait at all to start my Lucky Star BOM for February, once my Triple Zipper pouches were all finished! Again, I am using Tula Pink's Saltwater.
I even "fussy cut" the coral spokes to highlight the little seahorses, which are just about my favorite element of this line! They are so adorable!
I'm also linking up with Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts' February Goal party for her Lovely Year of Finishes.
My goal this month is to finish up my quilt that I made from my Mark Lipinski Califon stash. I bought the fabric more than a few years ago, made the top this summer, pin basted it, and even started quilting it this fall. It got "stuck" once Christmas came around, so I hope to get it all finished up!
A personal somewhat quilt related goal is to finally free up our entry way in our house from my sewing cutting space. Yes, my family is very patient with me. This arrangement drives even me crazy, as it has to get moved any time anyone wants extra shoes, coats or winter gear. There's even some hunting gear in that coat closet. I'm not sure where I'm going to cut out fabric now, but this just HAS to end!! Any space saving tips would be more than appreciated! Our house only has 3 bedrooms, and a large open great room that includes the kitchen, living room, dining room, and entryway. No extra bedroom, office, den, study, basement, loft, or anything like that. The rest of my sewing space is in our master bedroom, so I'm hoping I can find space there for a cutting area. Wish me luck!!
