How did that happen?

How many projects do I have on the go? This little picture doesn't include the knitting, the cross stitch or the secret Christmas stuff.
So I need another project like a hole in the head right? Why then did I find myself sorting out a box and cutting squares yesterday?
You know how it is, you're surfing the web, looking at blogs and come across something that catches your eye, something very special. I found this, which led me to this! Oh boy! Next thing I know I'm playing with Figgy fabrics and making a start.
Charming Stars is a pretty enough quilt and was on my list for 'one day' but as soon as I saw the Figgy version I was a gonner! Thanks for the inspiration Stephanie.
On to other things. I did a little more quilting on that other Figgy quilt yesterday and buried all the threads last night, I think I should get that finished today and hopefully will be sitting closing the binding tonight. :-) I'm really not impressed with myself, the quilting doesn't do it justice, but I know my daughter will love it regardless. As has become the norm, I did a few rows of knitting last night also, pretty soon my blanket will be long enough to keep me warm.

I know the feeling. The solution is Don't surf the web. Ho. Ho. If you were me you'd know there's not much chance of that!!

I love your placemats and little christmas trees.

We can't help oursleves, can we? We just love new projects!

Your star quilt is going to look great in those fabrics.

I hope we can see your daughter's quilt before you give it to her.
