I'm Excited!!!

I'm excited, so VERY excited l have had trouble sleeping!! But there is someone else l have to share my news with before l can tell you!! Don't worry, it won't be too long!!
( any guess's? )

While doing the tidy up and purging in my sewing room, l found a basket of these half square triangles all sewn, and sitting forlorn. l can't remember any more what they were for or why they were sewn.

So today was stashbuster sewing day and they came along for the ride, and l turned them into this basket full of little hour glass blocks. See in the bottom of the basket, l even had 2 different sizes of squares cut out. No idea why.

In this book is the NEW inspiration for these blocks. So as we are a footy following family, and my DH will be glued to the telly tonight and at the game for his team tomorrow night, l hope to get back in my sewing room and turn these baby's into something beautiful. Stay tuned!!
Thanks for visiting,

    That is such a nice book I have it too.

  3. oh I love those little hourglass blocks and perfect colors, love blue right now, crazy I never liked blue but lately find myself very drawn to it.

  4. Oo I wonder what it could be? A special visitor or quilt donation for the Quilts in the Barn?I can't wait to find out! Your excitement is contageous. I love the photo of the basket full of blocks. You've always got such lovely projects on the go. Looking forward to seeing what you make with these.

  5. What a great find!! I have a collection of hst's that I've made with "quick piecing" -- all colors and I have no idea what I'm going to do with them! I'll be watching to see what you come up with!
