I'm busy at work on the patchwork border for my Once Upon a Star project.
^ Those are going around this:
And I've started a brand new project!!! I am so very ready for something NEW! And this is totally new, not from my UFO list.
It's qualified, though. I'm on a serious mission to sew up the 400 Gazillion projects I already have, so I have a strong rule about buying anything outside of what is needed for current projects. But somebody had this totally cool Santa scooter fabric at their Etsy shop when I was purchasing a sweater for our freezing cat, and there's a very special reason why it had to get to our house. So I bought it under strict conditions. The rules: It MUST become its destiny this Christmas; It MUST be used ONLY with existing stash; and the project MUST break a quilting "rule."
So I mulled over a design and then combed through my holiday tub. The black and just a smidge of gold will frame off the scooter fabric and make some other design elements.
The whole thing on paper is rather reminiscent of Santa's belt and buckle somehow. Just wait 'til you see it in a week.
SOOOOO antsy to get this sewn up!! :D
