the too-short days got to me and i've been ogling those kaffe charm squares for a few weeks now, wondering what i could make from them. the 30 UFOs are being ignored temporarily while i finish the jelly roll flimsy and play with these bright colors. with some cheddar strips and the kaffe charms, going to make this little piece--only 40 nickels but a wowza feeling. the days are starting to lengthen, but until it's daylight at 5 pm (sometime in january), this will chase away the gloom. *** saw the new year in last night and up early this AM, so a nap is on today's agenda, along with the sewing of course AND the parade too. *** the UFO challenge is on and thankfully i am not in the top 10, so i've time to have a finish before my name looms closer to the top. quilting on the hawaiian is coming along nicely; such a relaxing pastime and anxious to see the design unfold. am using aurifil white quilting thread for the first time and it is terrific....the gals--old viking, phoebe and trudy--love it too. hope you enjoy this first day of 2015!
