I'm going buggy with stars

Here's my design floor for today.  Sorry about the blurry pic.  The thing is now large enough so that I can't use my tripod.

I'm starting to get tired of it, but have enough fabric for about 20-25 more blocks, easily, and I might as well go for as big as it will get.  I'm so amazed at how people can make king-sized quilts; I can barely manage a lap one.

What I really want to do is sew on the machine.  I haven't touched Frau Pfaff for more than a month.  First I was totally involved with my EPP, then we had the Penny visit and had to move the sewing stuff out of the guest room.  The Alex visit is coming up in a couple of weeks, so it doesn't pay to move everything back.  So, no sewing.  And I really want to sew.  Maybe it's a good thing that I can't, because then the Starry Monster would be set aside.  "But I wanna sew", she whines.  I need to make at least 2 baby quilts.  And I need at least 2 new project bags for all the baby projects.  And I want to play with blocks.  Whine, complain, grouse.

Isn't it funny how the yearning comes over hand stitch sometimes and to sit at the machine at other times!??! I have more of some of those fabrics that I could send you if you want to make your stars piece bigger?!?!

Hmmm. Maybe you could take a stack of fabric down to the Sewing Machine dealership and tell them you just want to test-drive a few?

Oh that is so very pretty. I know it's hard when you don't have access to the sewing machine, but those stars are so beautiful, hopefully they can hold you over a little while longer.

It is very beautiful. Hope you will finish it!

you need to keep going, its really pretty! I want to see it when you finish it. Just reminds me of being by the sea, calm and peaceful.

I agree with Kathy - I've had a machine hankering lately and I hope to work on some projects on my day off tomorrow.

You might have seen the poll on my blog (please vote if you haven't done so yet) about a proposed monthly hexie (really all EPP) linky party. It seems like a go and I'll post more on Monday - I hope you'll join in!
