I hope to start this new thing called Whiteboard Wednesday. As you may recall from my last podcast, I keep a WhiteBoard in my sewing room with my monthly to do list. As a form of accountability I plan on blogging about the status of that list every Wednesday….thus, WhiteBoard Wednesday. Some Wednesdays will even be Wordless WhiteBoard Wednesday!
So, this week you will see I have quite a few done! All my monthly’s (the ones in green) are done. BUT there are still 3 important things to do! I can say the FAL tutorial is almost done – the projects are complete and the tutorial is about half written. Oh and what you don’t see is I have added #swoon2013 yep! you guessed it! a new project!
Back in 2012 there was a Swoon Along started by Katy of i’m a ginger monkey (if I’m wrong about this please don’t tell me). It was a huge success but some of us missed it. So Sarah of Fairy Face Designs has decided to host Swoon 2013 because she rocks!!! I know there are about 5/6 of us swoon-ing at the moment and maybe more after Sarah blogs about it. If you want to #swoon2013 with us please let me know and I will forward you to the right place once it is all up and running.
Here is my fabric of choice (I hope to add some of Lori’s newest line too):
There are two lines from Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet here – Millie’s Closet & Polka Dot Stitches. I hope to add Bake Sale and potentially Gracie Girl. I have also been looking on Etsy and found some of her older lines that will fit in this quilt – Sew Cherry and Daisy Cottage. Obsess much?
I am taking my time with this one because I want a LARGE king size quilt. I actually want more of a bedspread size. What I mean is that when I don’t want to have to use a bed skirt. I want it to go all the way to the floor and over the pillows. Like this….
So…one large block at a time….that’s the plan!
There you have June 19th WhiteBoard Wednesday….accountability is important (that’s what they tell addicts too)!!!
