Design Wall Monday


Last year, Bonnie Hunter wrote about a Bow Tie Block Challenge.  We were supposed to use them for leader/enders only.  I wasn't going to do it, I had too many other things going on.  You all know where I'm going here, don't you!!!  Yes...I caved and started making blocks.  They are just so darn cute.  Then life happened and other things happened and the bow ties were put away to be worked on "later".

Guess what??? It's later.....I unearthed the basket-really I knew where it was but I needed to cut fabric and put that off.  This weekend I was sewing on a couple of my Sow-A-Long blocks and didn't have anything for a leader/ender.  I decided to get busy and cut a bunch of block parts to fill my little basket.  I don't know how many I cut but I know there are enough to keep me busy for a while.

It sure feels good to be sewing again.  My room isn't finished yet, I have shelves to put up still and things to put where they are handy.  I know what storage containers I need to buy.  Now I have to make a trip into town to get them.  It will get done.......soon.

Welcome to the Bow tie Challenge... I'm doing mine scrappy too. Did you put up a temporary Design wall yet?

I need to do exactly the same thing...get a L/E project cut and organized.

Susan said...

Aren't L/E projects the greatest.... Just think of all the thread we are saving.....

Glad you took the time for a stitch or two... That helps to recharge and continue the organization.

Your were the inspiration for me getting some things done to better organize my own studio.......Thanks

So glad to see you joining in on the bow-tie challenge. It is such a cute pattern. Sometimes starting something new is good motivation to finish something old.
