I am still plugging away on my Sidekick Tote. I seem to have lost some momentum! First I had to wait for some hardware to arrive, and then I ran out of thread and had to go buy more. I’ll hopefully finish it by this weekend.

On a more exciting note, I am finally returning to my wonky stars quilt! This is an (extremely) overdue gift for my niece, and I had grown somewhat tired of working on it, but after a long break, these stars seem awfully fun again! I’m finding that I really prefer the stars that are monochromatic or use two colors that are next to one another on the color wheel (I am blanking on the technical term for that). I especially love this new block with a mini string block in the middle!


I keep changing my mind on how many stars I’ll do. I am up to 14 now, and I think I want at least 20.

I am off to Chicago for some training later today so I won’t be sewing again until the weekend. I hate it when the creative juices are flowing but I’m forced to be away from my sewing machine! I have a lot of ideas for handmade Christmas gifts that I really want to get started on!
