I did organize my fabrics and found I have way too much red. I am not a red person so I can not figure out for the life of me why I have so much?????? I also have very little purple and pink, what is up with that? Oh well...it is nice and tidy. I wish I had taken a picture but my room has been destroyed since. Don't ask me how that happened.

Here is my mother's block, maybe you can see that she did not follow the rules (funny huh)? I think it was right on the beginning of her dementia....but I love the block anyways.
So this is my quest now, to find a sashing fabric and border fabric. I am going through all of my fabrics, thinking of organizing them as well...so this project may take a while.

So as some of you know, I am working on my Posh Penelope by Sew Kind of Wonderful.
Babysitting today, I was up this morning at two and thought since I wasn't sleeping I would be productive. Hope I am not too grumpy today.

This was the first thing I did yesterday morning. Had started 8 log cabin blocks, finished them up
I decided that it was easier to do it in groups, searching for the right fabric among all of the cut pieces was tedious for one and I just felt it would go faster if I did it for more at one time.
I woke up yesterday thinking that it is almost the end of January and I had nothing to show for it, hence the two finished projects.
I also put two borders on a quilt I have not shown, or don't think I have. It measures 90" square. I am going to try to have it on the frame today. I am piecing the backing.
Sometimes I wonder to myself why I don't take the time and do some fancy quilting and I believe I said this before, if I did, things would never get done. I am not out to make a trophy quilt. That is one reason it took so long to get that one Hunter Star quilt finished, I was planning to do something fun on it. Finally decided to just get it done and out of the way. On to greener pastures.
Don't know what happened to that energy today.....I feel like a deflated balloon...haha.

Recently I have been working with small pieces, like 3/4 inch squares. My fingers just have a hard time working with that small of a piece.
So.....Meet my new best friend!!!!
I saw this book on Amazon and I just love the sewing machines and scissors. As you can tell, I couldn't resist. It is not like I don't have other projects I am working on.
.....someone needs to help me from myself!!!!
Here is the first row. I have to tell ya, I would have had it done sooner but last night I just kept making mistake after mistake. When that happens a person knows it is time to quit for the evening.
I think I am going to make one log cabin block and then work on a project I started last year. I think I only need five squares. I don't know about you but I ask myself all of the time "Why didn't I just keep going?"
Have a wonderful evening.
