Works in planning and lack of progress

After a recent tidy up and sort out, Gina agreed to have a little swap with me. I sent her a bunch of magazines, and she sent me a bunch of Navy Blue fat quarters.
Look at all of this! Gina not only sent some pretty fat quarters, she also had a look through her scraps and found some largish Navy Blue pieces in there and sent them along too AND she enclosed a cute Rudolph pattern. Thank you for swapping with me Gina. You know how I love blue and white quilts? Well probably in about 20 years........ LOL

I've been playing about a little with the Butterfly Fling blocks adding some sashing. I'll play about with it some more today and see where it goes. I don't think I ever really had a firm plan for this one, maybe that's why it became a UFO. Now that there is a baby girl to create for it's taken life again. It's slow progress though, I've got a sinussey head cold thing happening which is causing a distinct lack of concentration and enthusiasm, fortunately sewing precut sashings onto blocks is pretty mindless, the little knitted Aran jacket has ground to a halt though.

I'm going to play for an hour or two.
Oh by the way, this is post number 597!! We're getting up there.

For some reason, dark navy blue prints are hard to find just now. I have been on a hunt for them but must be looking in the wrong place! Hope you feel better soon.

You did very well with your swap with Gina. They will be a lovely addition to yours stash. I'm looking forward to seeing how you progress with your Butterfly Fling blocks.
