Lucky Stars – still a Work in Progress

My day job is in Retail Accounting and most retailers perform inventory at the end of January. Needless to say, we have been extremely busy at work and it’s really digging into my sewing time. But, for the first weekend in about 2 months, I was off on Saturday! It was incredibly exciting!!
I spent the time sewing and indulging in #thegreatfabricdestash on Instagram. Let’s just say I have a couple packages heading my way. I really need to stop refreshing that feed.
This week, I received a couple more textie-like fabrics. I love this RIley Blake Lost & Found 2 print.


I also ordered these 2 Premier prints. They are a light weight Home Decor print. It was not what I was expecting but I can definitely make it work. Now, I’m thinking pillows and window shades. Hmmm, what to do, what to do?


My Saturday sewing consisted of more Lucky Stars BOM blocks from Don’t Call me Betsy. I am seriously loving these! I now have 6 total – three 12 1/2 inch and three 6 1/2 inch blocks. Here are the newest ones.




All together they look great!

      It took me a little while to get the hang of it. I’m really enjoying it right now. But, remembering to keep every little scrap is a bit difficult for me. Those small blocks can use some really small pieces.
