Snatching Time

I will admit there are times I feel like I waste a lot of time.  There are days I lament my loss of time, but I know that occasionally you need some downtime to reset. 

Tuesday we were at the hospital for an outpatient procedure.  While I was waiting I managed to get parts traced for several applique projects I want to do.  I won't show the sheet but lets just say that it is a over 2 foot long of heat and bond off the roll.

I ordered a kit during November for a winter type quilt. I finished up piecing it today.  There is a lot to say for simple.  I think that the Stripology ruler really did help get the fabric cut for this quilt quite a bit faster than it would normally take me.

The red is flannel and for me was a bit tricky to work with, but don't you just adore these cute little scenes?
I love the snowmen, bears, old cars, trucks and vintage trailers. 

I also added to my fabric hoard stash.  Fat quarters of mini pearl bracelets from Massdrop.
Some 1/2 yard and 1 yard cuts from Old Country Store's black Friday sale.
Still working on finishing up the 3 months of the RSC. 

I finished my binding on my star quilt, and today while hanging with the boys I finished designing my labels, now to get my fabric prepped and to print it out.  I try to get things done when I have a few moments.  Someday I get more done than others. 


  1. love that quilt and that fabric. so so fun! love easy too.
    was talking to my brother yesterday and he said my Dad hates bears. ugh.......dont know what I will do now for his bear quilt. May take a deer panel and make it reversible? grrrrrrrr

  2. Keep on biting off small bites and the finishes will come! Nice progress!

  3. Flannel can be a bit tricky to stitch. I think we all need that down time to distress.

  4. I love that fabric, it is so cute!

  5. Looks like you did a good job snatching some time for yourself. Love that flannel design!
