Well, my plans for my week off didn't pan out but I did manage to start and finish this little quilt...

I have been wanting to make one of these cross quilts for ages.  I put together a sweet stack of fabrics (see previous post) and drafted up a pattern.  It actually came together quite quickly. You can't see the back but it's a really cute print with tiny little daisies!  Very sweet! I just might have to make a boy version of this one! I'm so glad I went ahead with this quilt despite my hesitation I mentioned in my previous post.  This one will be heading over to my shop in the next few days once I get some decent pictures.

Finally, here's a picture of Lissie all tucked in and ready for a nice long sleep!  Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!

Is It Just Me???

I spend hours days choosing fabric and mulling over patterns...

I draft up a pattern...

and then I choke with my blade poised over the fabric.  Why do I do this?  Is it just me?  Why don't I have the confidence to make that first cut?  I pretty much like what I make (for the most part, anyway)!  Where does this self-doubt come from? Is it fear of wasting my precious fabric? Or wasting time making something that doesn't turn out as planned? Do you ever feel the same way?
