    Well sort of. My mind has been frazzled all week!*

    First I wanted to do a French braid, that idea came and went because I couldnt find the "right" fabric in my stash. The next day, I started to cut out pieces from my scraps the come quilt with me snowball templates. Well couldnt figure out how to piece it. The next day I started to cut strips for a baby quilt for my niece (shame on me as I have not completed anything yet for her and all I have left to do is the binding on the first one I did). So that brings me to yesterday as I took scraps and started to piece randomly but that idea also came and went.*

    And finally today, I came up with the idea to start my postage stamp quilt that's on my list to do. After about 12 hrs, here's what I did, one block *:shock: *:) *the pile I still need to do brings me to nine blocks but I need 24 so it will be 48x72. I'll check under the bed & another bin of scraps. Then I might cut into the yardages and FQ's (last resort), and/or buy more scraps. My goal is to have one of each print! Can I do it? Keeping my hopes up and months to accomplish this goal, yes I believe I can do this!*

    My daughter says "good luck with that" lol hahaha

    start of postage stamp!

    They used to call that a charm quilt- if you don't have any duplicates, it has some sort of charm on it- it's magic!

    Anyway, I still love it, even if there are any duplicates!!!
