Jenelle at Echinops and Aster, a wonderful needlework blog, posted a couple of days ago about a new link-up party called "A Lovely Year of Finishes" which is hosted by Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa of Bittersweet Designs.
I hope participating in this will give me the little nudge to finish up all the needlework projects I have started. For January I’ll get my Spinning Star mini-quilt finished.
I’m hand piecing these blocks, which is why I’m keeping it small. Hand work is very relaxing for me and I just love how it looks.
Many years ago I bought a bunch of fabric from a Smithsonian collection called The Rising Sun. I’ve got to look for more of it, I just love the whole collection and am sorry I didn’t buy more!
There are other fabrics mixed in and I’m keeping it on the scrappy side. For me to get this done I will need to dedicate a couple of hours a day, which I’m not complaining about at all!
