I signed up for Moda U last year at the shop where I work part-time. I was there for the "after party" from the previous year's Moda U and it looked like so much fun. Sadly, there weren't enough people for the Thursday evening class, so they dropped it. I still got my block packets, but no fellow students to encourage me to finish them. And so I didn't....
This year Joyce convinced me to join the Moda You Green Piece BOM. It wasn't hard to convince me - her blocks have been displayed in the shop for the last few weeks and the fabrics are just beautiful. We had our first meeting last Thursday and the group is really fun. It will give me a reason to finish my blocks each month for "show and tell."
Here are my first two blocks - each month we will have 2 pieced stars and 2 wool applique blocks. The wool hasn't arrived in the shop yet, so we won't get started on those until next month.
I also worked this weekend on Cindy Lou Who for the Year of Schnibbles and also made good progress on my stunt sewing project (rows all completed, half are sewn together!). Yes, that's right - I have 3 projects layered on top of each other on my sewing table. This is NOT how I usually work. I work on ONE project at a time. This is making me certifiable. But the good news is - I'M SEWING AGAIN!!!!!
