Coming off the couch

 I've been hunkered down on the couch for most of the last week. I hate being sick for the obvious reason, cuz it's no fun, but also cuz I get nothing done. I feel so guilty for being such a sloth. But "it is what it is" and I've come off the couch today and pulled out a UFO to work on.

I saw this quilt over at several years ago and fell in love with it's simplicity. I had one jelly roll of beautiful Jennifer Paganelli fabrics and wanted to do a simple quilt pattern that would showcase the fabrics. This is a relatively recent UFO - I believe I started it last March or April. I have about thirty blocks currently made and squared up. I can make 40 blocks with the jelly roll and then will cut some 2 1/2" strips from my Paganelli scraps to make a total of 48 blocks. Jennifer actually lives here in my town and I am lucky enough to go to her regular SIS Boom sales. I love picking up her scrap bags and fat quarter bags. Such treasures.

I also spent a little more time on the Kathleen Star Winter Solstice BOM. I want to get this block finished by the end of February so I guess tomorrow (Thursday) is the day. I won't meet all of my February goals but this one I can do. I only have the center tips to make and then assemble all the parts. When it's finished I'll get a picture with natural light.

No fun being sick. The bright colors should help bring you up from your slothful mood. Lucky you to get to acquire scrapbags from your favorite designer. Do they sell by the bag or pound?

I'm sorry to hear that you've been sick! Your WiP's are looking really good! Looking forward to seeing them done!
