I thought I would first start off showing you my Paper pieced Good Luck Star on the foyer wall.  (About time eh?)  Makes me smile.  The blues make me think of a serene,calm and peaceful home.

Today Ayden is at preschool and so mommy is having some sewing time to herself for a bit.

I seam ripped this stack last night while sitting with the boys and then clipped each stack of  6 together for today.  You should have seen how many tiny white threads I had covering my shirt.  The hubby says he either finds my blonde hair or threads all over...hehehe...he's right!

12 blocks to go.....

I have a feeling I may be making a few more after that to make this a twin.  Perhaps add a border too.  All the colors for each block don't always match which of course doesn't matter.  It is really fun and interesting to see which ones do though.

I haven't started on my Lucky Star BOM for Feb. yet,but as soon as I get that printer issue figured out I am ready to paper piece:)

I am also dying to pull fabrics for Amy Ellis' QAL,but I am restraining myself a little longer.  I guess;)

Time to sew some squares together now!!

Celebrate your day with some sewing "me" time!

that star is so gorgeous! How nice to have it hanging on the wall. Love seeing your progress on the scrappy trip-along too. That's another project I couldn't squeeze in, so it's fun to see the craze.
