Loose Ends

Well, for the second time on this years mystery quilt I finished a clue before the next one was released. I shouldn't do that. Now I am at loose ends. Nothing to do until tomorrow. 


Clue three was a challenge. I found I had cut 40 more rectangles than I needed because I wasn't checking my instructions. Boo. There is only a little peach/melon fabric left. I hope there isn't much more needed. These were fun to sew even if I can't follow instructions!

The box is filling up with clues! But there are loads of aqua/turquoise and chocolate fabrics left to use still. Most likely at least three clues left to go. 

I would probably not be so antsy if I had a project to sew on between clues. I do. I just can't work on more than one at the same time. The Dresden Plate quilt still lies in blocks waiting to be finished,  borders undecided. I have a Christmas tree skirt top I made two years ago, unfinished, backing undecided. I just bought an appliqué pattern and am collecting fabrics for it. Plus...there are the umpteen cross stitch designs I have going! Nope, these won't do! I hope tomorrow comes quickly. I might die of boredom...

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Hey Daffy it's really nice to see you posting again! I love all the quilting you've been doing lately, even with a bum arm!

Those are beautiful quilt colors. So many projects, so little time. I love how you named your sewing machines. My goal is to restore one someday.

I have the opposite problem! Too many projects going on at once. I am going to have to get better about getting my holiday gift sewing done in the summer, or something. Your clues look great! I have everything cut for 4, and may have time to begin sewing them tomorrow.

Eeek! Hope you don't run out of peach fabric! Can't wait to see how this looks when you get it all put together :)
