Sewing Saturday

Well nothing much to report of sewing Saturday. With all the great fabric sales I have bought A LOT of fabric, but have not done any sewing.

I have been spending a lot of my time getting The We Bee Learnin Beginner Block Bee up and running. We just need one more lucky person and we can get started. E-mail me if you are interested or go to  If you don’t want to participate in the bee, but would like to follow along please feel free to join our group as well. Also once again if anyone knows how to create a button for the bee please let me know. I have been trying to figure it out on my own and there has been a lot of smoke, but no fire...LOL

******* Update*******
My button angel RITA just paid me a visit and created the most amazing button for the We bee Learnin Bee and we found our last member

Thank you so very very much Rita! 
If you haven't already you should check out Rita's site she's a pretty talented lady! 

I have decided to join up with the 2012 NewFO Challenge over at Cat Patches. It a pretty easy challenge, you simply have to start one new project a month and don’t finish it. I am sure no one is coming to beat you up if you do finish your projects, but the goal is to simply make a new project every month. Since this is something that I have wanted to it a New Year’s Resolution I thought why not join up.

My list for hopeful NewFO’s for 2012 are

1.       Table runner using a pattern I bought 3 years ago
2.       Quilt for my BF
3.       Quilt for my bed
4.       Quilt for my grandmother
5.       Quilt for the spare bedroom
6.       Pumpkin wall hanging
7.       Valentines mini quilt
8.       Place mats
9.       Santa blocks
10.   Snowman wall hanging
11.   Baby quilt
12.   Something using my jelly rolls

I have the fabric picked out and bought for all of those projects I just need to pick a pattern for a few and simply just start the rest!


  1. This is a good list! I'm so glad you joined in. I can direct you to someone who can make a button. She charges about $7 for the button, but it's worth it, I think. She did my mast head and all of my buttons on my blog.

  2. like your list! I'm in the challenge, too, it will be fun to have projects 'started' with no pressing finish dates!
    Happy New Year to you!

  3. Hi! I just sent you a flickr mail about joining the we bee learning bee! Hope you still have a spot left for me, I'd love to take part!

  4. Oops, sorry, I forgot to reply to your email.

    Given the job hunting, resulting in a new job and a move to a new city I'll be having this year, I thought it best not to commit myself to anything. I'll watch what you gus come up with though. And if you host one again, I'll join in then.

  5. I love your new button!! (I dont know how to make them either !!)

    Good luck with your new challenge, and have a fun year quilting!

  6. love the button! I have to get to work and figure out one as well!!
