Up to no Good!

I have had some time on my hands this weekend!  Why is that you may ask.  Well two of my three kids living at home have left for college.  I have only one child at home and only for a week.  He leaves on Friday.  Well I felt like playing with fabric.  Don't you know, I just started TWO new quilts.  I should not even have started one, never mind two!!!! So now my UFO list is not as improved as I thought it was getting to be.  I did have FUN though.  Life is just way too short not to have some fun every now and then.   Let me show you what I have done.

Firstly the new Quilt Magazine arrived this week and there are two gorgeous foundation paper piecing patterns inside.  The one is a Christmas Quilt which is so pretty and was just calling out to me to make it!  The second is also a FPP project but that one will have to wait a while.
Here is a picture from the Quilt magazine.
Isn't it absolutely lovely!  The third picture is of my first block!  Only fifteen left to go and let me tell you it was a boatload of stitching and trimming and pressing.  It was fun though.  Well, that is project number one.  I will show you project number two tomorrow when I get a bit more of it done.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great week.
