The Civil War Stitch Along has officially started. Not all of the projects are ready yet but six of them are, so it is time to get started. We plan to make this a Year of Civil War. Projects will be added all the time and people can pick and choose what projects they want to work on.
What else is there to do for those of us who do not like to have snow ball fights, ride snomobile, shovel snow, drive in the snow, walk in the snow, slip and slide on ice?? I try very hard to ignore it by not looking out my windows. I really do like winter as a season, but since "arthur" took up residence in my joints, I try to stay away from it as much as possible. Thank God for my love of sewing and crafting, it does make the winter pass swiftly and keeps your mind off of the snow and cold.
I am working on new projects using Civil War fabrics, and it has been really interesting to look at the different designs and colors from that era. I am trying to do some pieces exactly as they used to do, using some English Paper Piecing, and I am also doing one that is totally stitched by hand. It is fun to try to do things as they were done back then, I have collected some old quilt blocks from the late 1800's and I plan to be working on some projects using actual fabric from that era. I will share some pictures as I get them completed.
For now, it is off to bed, to warm my feet!
Happy Stitching! Carol
