At the end of this month we are putting our house up for sale.

 We have been advised to expect it to take 3-4 months to get an offer.

So, what do I worry about?  Of all crazy things?  What if it sells really fast and we have several months between houses?! Everything will be in boxes, including my  sewing machine…

Will I have enough handwork to keep me busy for two months?!  Three months?…

So, my new mission has been to prepare a bunch of projects to work on, in case we are waiting on a house.  (I think I come up with these ideas so I don’t have to clean the garage…).

But, I’ve been good, and working on things I already own!

 I prepped these blocks from Vintage Valentine!  These are from 2006 I think.  I still love how soft and feminine they are!  13 blocks in this project, maybe half are done.

I also prepared some applique work on Farm Fresh from Buggy Barn.

This is such a great quilt, I think it is from 2010.  The shop has one kit for sale, $195.

I also put together this little quilt from Primitive Gatherings called My Favorite Things, 2012.

The inside blocks are done.  Now I just have to get the borders ready.  I saw a finished one of these quilts from Kathie R. on the shops Facebook page!

These alone are probably three years worth of handwork…but I am still going to get more ready!

Also, I sure am ready to make a trip to the shop and to got to the quilt show.

Of course, my list for the What’s Your Stitch and Stuff is long too!  I heard that just got in a lot of precuts and yardage from Moda!  Just in time!

Indigo Crossing from Minick and Simpson. (Yummy)!

Maybe I’ll pick something to do my hand with some of this fabric…hmmm I know which collection!

OK, nothing to do with quilting…but…too cute!
