My Newest Project

All is not totally lost. I want you all to know I haven't thrown in the towel totally yet and I am working on a new quilting project. Let me rephrase that, I have been working on this for several weeks now and here it sits. I loved this Easterish, baby chicks and lamb print and decided to make a baby quilt with it.

However, when the main body of the quilt was finished, I felt the print in the middle was flat had no dimension to it so I took out my fabric puff paints and embellished it a bit and now it looks much nicer.

The blue border is a flannel barnyard print with lambs on it and then the dotted fabric is a cotton print with colors that blend in well with the panel. I am going to try to finish adding the outer border of dotted print today.

I am aware the date on them is in the future. I have a new camera and my granddaughter set the date and it doesn't bother me, so I haven't changed it as of yet. I have bigger things to concern myself with, but I mention it here because for some reason it really bothers others. Go figure??

I just wanted everyone to know I am still working on things, but I believe last year, I burnt myself out working on so many projects for those in need, that I forgot to take care of me and thus created a stew for myself that I need a very long spoon to crawl out of this bowl...but I will!

One can get burned out...take care of yourself.

Thank you for your comment on my blog.

Don't burn yourself out. It should always be FUN!
