T-shirt quilt is coming together.
I and trimming the hst for the corners of the attic window.
I have lots of that lighter blue, so that will be the border.
I think I might try and get a think darker blue border around it to stop the window. 
I have the stars all done and need around 2" left to then cut and put the stars into the purple strips.
I think I have the needed strips, so maybe will get this top done tomorrow.
Will need to see if I want a last purple "border" around the piece.
I'll see how it looks tomorrow.

This mess was crafts, trash, filing, a little bit of everything.
I sorted it and then put it all away.

I seem to be collecting bags and boxes of things.
I find when I don't stay home very much that life takes over my space.

Winter Solstice

I'm using floral scraps.
I think I have a scrap problem.
There are so many floral scraps that I've not duplicated any fabrics. 
It's becoming a large selection.
I hope I have enough of the background.
