Playtime -

This month is usually full of year-end "chores" - 
And I want to do some sorting and organizing around my Studio -
Update my Scrapbook - 
Make some Scrap Cards and Hearts to get caught up on them - 
Finish up some bindings and labels - 
And other odds and ends - 
SO - 
Just for fun - 
I have some PLAYTIME planned - 
For those times when I need to take a break - 
I found this printed panel in my stash - 
It's called Opal KaBloom
And it has a 24" flower on the one side - 
And two smaller flowers on the other side - 
Along with two small squares in the middle - 

The shadows in the photo are fold lines and the frame rails -
Since it's spread out on the insert tables -  
And hasn't been pressed yet -
The BLUE on the right will be for the backing - 
But I'll have to piece an "extender" strip to make it wider - 
Since the panel is 44" wide - the same as the backing - 
I'll probably start with the small squares and the white/beige flower - 
Then quilt the medium-sized flower - 
And work my way up to the larger one - 
I want to practice smaller - more precise - designs -  

And I want to play with different colors and types of thread -

This will probably be a month-long project - 

Since I'll play with it in between other stuff - 
As time allows - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
