Island Batik Whimsical and Wonky







Here is my Whimsical project, it isn't wonky because no matter how I try I can't do wonky. It just is to hard for this analytical mind to handle. I might actually explode trying. I had some strips of Winter blues that weren't enough to make more than a table runner but oh they are pretty. Island Batik fabrics are so nice to work with. I love the designs and the colors and the feel. I have had so much fun being an ambassador and love seeing all the projects the other gals come up with. Having a monthly theme is a challenge but I have learned a lot. January's blog hop will be loads of fun so be sure to stop by. So stay tuned, there is more to come. I will post a schedule so you can hop to all the ambassadors sites and see the wonderful projects and beautiful fabrics.

This had to be put on the back burner because I had Christmas presents for the grandkids. I made pillow cases for some of the distant ones but I made pocket pillows for the 13 that live close. Gave them a flashlight and a book.

I also, got a few projects that were almost done finished. I think I put binding on at least 5 quilts and pulled out some that need quilting with the intention of putting them on the frame, needless to say they are still waiting. I did have a nice productive vacation besides the trips to see the grandkids. Then after I got all that sewing done I couldn't take the mess in my sewing room, so I cleaned and rearranged so that I could move around better. I feel much better and now I am ready to tackle some bigger projects.One of which is Island Batiks January Getaway Blog Hop with my surprise fabric.

After Christmas Activities

My daughter came to visit yesterday and we spent time finishing two quilts she started for her kids for Christmas.  Then today I should have been working on some projects of my own for Island Batik challenges but I spent the day rearranging and cleaning my sewing room. I love having more space. I moved some furniture around and took some things out and I am feeling more creative already. Does any one else get side tracked cleaning when they should be sewing? Have a great day and hope you get lots done.
