Today was the first Friday Night Sew-In for 2012! I signed up for it about a week ago, not knowing then that today would be of the busiest, craziest days I've had in a long, LONG time.
However, I persevered, and I managed to get about 90 minutes of uninterupted sewing time tonight.
One blogger that I follow (Eagles' Wings Quilts) had mentioned that she'd seen a Scrappy Dresden Plates quilt along, and she signed up for it. I tried not to look, but you know the saying, "Resistance is futile!" - and I fell for it... I had half-heartedly decided a few weeks ago that I wasn't going to make any New Year's resolutions, but I did hope to finish a few UFOs (UnFinished Objects ) before I started a new project, and breaking that promise to myself on Jan. 16th didn't sit too well... until I realized that I had already cut a number of "blades" for a Dresden Plates quilt on Dec. 28th or 29th, so technically, it wasn't a NEW project! Guess what I worked on tonight? The Scrappy Dresden Plate quilt! I didn't get a lot accomplished, but I made a good start. See for yourself!
