Rainy Days and Sundays

What a treat this morning, slept late (7:30) and it was raining when I got up.  A guilt-free day of skipping my hour morning walk! A few days ago  finished the Sanctuary Sampler top I was working on.  I really like the way it turned out.  One less kit in the stash!

  Because I have such a small sewing room, after projects I am forced to tidy up or else nothing can be found.
That evolved to going through my fabric stash and pulling out stuff I no longer like or the quality is questionable.  I had a lot of the latter.  This being judged by the old holding-it-up-to-the-light test.  Amazing how fabric quality has improved just in the past 6 or 7 years or so. Anyone else notice that?   In my sorting and re-arranging, I ran across this online BOM I participated in last year.
I had neglected to do the last month which consisted of the trees using templates! Ugh.  All went well albeit rather slowly.  A major distraction over the past few weeks has been a pair of American Bald Eagles in our neighborhood. 
They have generated quite the stir!  I'll leave you with my Block 4 of the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along that Konda is sponsoring.

Now I'm off to pick out fabric for  the Schnibbles for the month, Tag Along.
Thanks for stopping by!

The Patchwork Party kit looks so very sweet!
I know what you mean about cleaning up to find anything. I'm working on going through it and finishing up/using up as I go.

Your Santurary Sampler turned out beautifully! The good thing about one less kit is one more quilt!!!

I love your Sanctuary Sampler. The colors are so soft and pretty. It must feel good to have a couple of big finishes this week. Are you going to quilt them yourself?

How exciting to have bald eagles to watch! Do they have a nest there?

I love your Sanctuary Sampler. I love Sanctuary! I would love to copy your idea but from what I read, I may have to use my own ingenuity! LOL
