January To Do List

Getting a slow start on  completing January’s to do list.  I think I just needed to slow down a bit.  I have worked so hard this past year on my UFO projects and new projects that I just needed to relax a bit without any time constraints.  So now that I have rested a bit and my back is doing better I am back to working on my To Do List.

Tomorrow is my birthday so I took a vacation day today with the intent of finally getting started on my great niece’s baby quilt.  It is a princess quilt.  I have been trying to collect “just the right” fabrics for it and dawdling, dragging my feet, any old excuse and now it is time.   I have gotten the castle block prepped today and will start on the frog block next.

Yes, the towers are supposed to  be leaning.  Not sure why, but in the pattern it is so.  Hmmmm, may have to think about straightening them.   Can’t stand a crooked picture hanging so why should a castle’s towers be crooked.

Til next time. Going to work on the Princess’s Frog.

About Sissy Malone

I've been actively sewing since Jr. High School. But specifically drawn to quilting since I was 17/18 years old. My grandmother was a quilter and I became fascinated with the process. I fell in love (awestruck) is a better word viewing applique quilts by Gladys Rashka at the Minnesota State Fair in the 70's. A love affair was born of applique quilts. I still machine piece, but am always drawn to applique. I took classes learning different techniques and also traveled to California and studied a whole week at Asilomar with Elly Sienkiewicz. Quilting is my passion. I am always open to learning a new technique but still rely on handwork. View all posts by Sissy Malone
