I have started a new rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. The full stop quilt that Angela is doing. It looks modern to me, and, I felt that I didn't have a background fabric with enough yardage that I wanted. I bought the polka dot for that. I bought 5 yards of it to make sure I would have enough. The red Christmas fabric came home in the bag with it.

I am really struggling to meet my goal for rug hooking. There are a few days that I just didn't want to hook. It might be that deep down seasonal rugs are not right, out of season haha. A scarecrow in January might be offending my sensibilities.... or, I might be lazy.
Hope you have a stitchery good week

My interest in different techniques varies too. I try to go with what I'm feeling rather than force what I'm not. It's supposed to be fun right?ReplyDelete
Every fabric addition needs a friend. :)
Great additions to your stash. Sorry the rug hooking isn't going as planned. Maybe you should take a break from the rug hooking for a week and see if that makes the heart grow fonder?ReplyDelete
I've had trouble with motivation this year. January is normally one of my best months, but nor in 2021. :(ReplyDelete
Love your fabrics!
Great background fabric, and this cute Christmas fabric has the good idea to be next to your bag and to jump into it ;)ReplyDelete
I think you have to be in the mood, if you're not there's no point forcing it, it's lovely seeing someone making a rug. I am a member of a clippy rug club at my library but we haven't met up since COVID I'm really missing it, Your fabrics are lovely 🙂ReplyDelete
Beautiful red Christimas fabric. Will you use it for the Fullstop blocks? Happy stitching and keep safe.ReplyDelete
I love seeing your rug making... I hope you keep at it!ReplyDelete
I'm making the full stop quilt too... so fun!
Beautiful fabrics, and lovely work on your rug!ReplyDelete
I like both your new fabrics, and you broke even for the week, so that's a good thing! Have fun with the RSC.ReplyDelete
Great numbers! Love the fabric.ReplyDelete
Love your new fabrics..so pretty.
Have a great day!
Yep, other goodies usually come home in the bag with something we need. I love your picks! Polka dots are a fave of mine!ReplyDelete
