This morning, I decided to follow my own best advice to myself and work on something else–in this case, another, less complex, tea towel idea. And, to give myself an extra little push, I'm making this project my goal for a Lovely Finish in March.
This pair of hot air balloon-themed tea towels were one of my purchases last fall, when I first started thinking about making another tea towel quilt and ended up collecting a few of them.
They are new, 100% cotton, made in India and very VERY thin. Backed with some lightweight fusible interfacing, I think they'll be OK. In the last couple days, an idea for using them in a quilt popped and, this morning, I pulled these fabrics from my stash as possibilities for the new quilt.
Whether it's really because Mercury has been retrograde or something else, I've decided to extend the time periods in the linky tool for the in-progress and show & tell updates ... just in case, I'm not the only one who has been a little stuck in February:
In-progress: February 1 - March 31
Show & tell: March 1 - May 31
I am optimistic that by following my own best advice to my self, working on this new tea towel project will shake loose the ideas in my head for my first choice and I'll make progress on both projects ... stay tuned.
