Off the Rails

OK, it is the 2nd day of the new year & I'm already deviating from my Quilting Resolutions!

Actually, my head was turned well before the year began. Shug & I have been traveling -- a lovely week in the midlands Christmas-ing with our families, 1 day home, then off down the coast for a few days of nature & relaxing. I put away my sewing machine on 18 December & have only now gotten it back out! 14 days without sewing makes one weak -- well, actually two weeks, but, well. Ahem!

 stockings were hung

Anyway, while I wasn't sewing, I was watching Instagram (do you Instagram? I do & I love it!) & seeing an avalanche of scrappy trip around the world blocks. So much fun! I was mentally going through my stash, trying to decide what mine would look like. As soon as the sand had settled from our travels, I was literally going through my stash, picking my fabrics. And here I go!

Weeks away from one's machine can be dangerous for to do lists. Ask me how I know!

I love that pic of the sand. It looks like the quilt I'm quilting... :)

I've been tempted by those blocks too. Yours look great. Now I'm even MORE tempted!

I couldn't resist either. Aren't they fun to make. I love the colours you've used. I've gone totally colourful with a bit of everything thrown in.
