I mentioned at the end of yesterday's post that I had given myself permission to set my Dear Jane aside. I have. It has nothing to do with my enjoyment or desire to complete the quilt. It's simply that I would like to do something else for a little while. I spoke with my friend Andrea about this and she agreed that there is nothing wrong with having more than one project going at a time. Ahhhhh. Sigh of relief. Now to my new project.
I have had this pattern and the fabric to make it for a couple years now.
It has been sitting in my cabinet, neatly folded, waiting to be made into something cheerful. A little scrappy, that tends to be my style.
I have most of the pieces cut and ready to go. I have to be in the mood to cut and luckily today I was. Rudy, Inhibitor #1, got in on the action. He loves being a part of anything I do in the sewing room.
I kicked him off the block I completed so you could see how it was going. I know the colors seem a little much, but there will be a lot more of the neutral to break it up. And besides, it's a Christmas quilt. It's allowed to be bright and loud.
Kracken (Inhibitor #2) likes hanging out with me too. Besides enjoying the breeze in the open window from his perch on my ironing board, he found a way to entertain himself. It doesn't take much for my playful boy.
So much like my husband who can (and will) make a game of anything.
