Chocolate Challenge is under way!

I finally started my project and I am very happy to be sewing once again I have taken a long break to organize my stash and sewing room. I got a lot done though I am not fully complete with the fabric sorting as yet. I still haev my scraps to organize and it is taking a lot of time. So I told myself I need to take some time to enjoy the friuts of my labor and get into my next project. I can't show pictures of my progress because it is a contest, but once the contest it over I will post a picture of the finished project for sure.

I have 2 more challenges that are due in September and so I thought I had better get started or I would have nothing done as time keeps getting away from me. The chocolate challenge is due by May 15th. I am having fun with it so far! This is a challenge form my friend Rhonda she has the best ideas for things and they usually are a ton of fun! Well back to sewing I guess! Bye for now. Ellen

First post of 2009! Gee I have been busy sorting my stash and getting it under control. I vow not to buy anymore fabric until 2010! So far so good.

I am in the process of getting things organized in my sewing room. Thus far I have sorted all my stash and put the likes together for sizes and colors for all the FQ's, 1/2 yards, 3/4 yards, 1 yards, and over 1 yards! Everything else went in the scraps categories. I plan on using Bonnie Hunter's scrap system from QUILTVILLE web site.

Phew this is taking me a long time but once I am there I will keep it going so no more will I be unorganized! I plan on doing Bonnie's double deligth mystery and so I can't wait to get this done to get started.

Oh yeah see I told myself I can't do any sewing until this is all done so it is driving me crazy currently not to sew anything right now. So in the evenoing I have been cutting the scraps into using parts for the sytem Bonnie speaks about. I am getting closer with each evening and on the weekends!

I probable should take BIG BERTHA to the shop to get serviced while I am doing this, She is my Janome Memory craft 6600 the best machine in the world in my humble opinion!

Well that is what I am up to more later! Ellen
