Pajamas all day!

Today was another active day in my quilt room.  PJs all day and nothing else done around the house!
I was playing in scraps and combining a few patterns.  Thanks to Barbara at www.catpatches.blogspot.com I found the "Dream Machines Quilt Pattern".  It has a couple of places that I had to redo because the square for making triangle corners were too big.  If you are going to make it, drop me a line and I will let you know which two I changed.  Then I am using a pattern from a Quilting magazine and replacing some 12 inch blocks with the sewing machines and some of the 6 inch blocks with a spool block which I haven't made any of yet.
I will let you know which pattern it is but I left it upstairs so it will have to wait until tomorrow.  I am using only scraps so NO purchases will be made to make the front of this quilt- and hopefully not the back either. 
These "Peek-a-boo" blocks were lots of fun.  There will be many of them in the quilt. 
I also worked on a few Block Lotto blocks but only one came out good enough to enter.  In the other two, the whites I chose weren't white enough.
I still have to post it on the blog and hopefully I will be able to make a few more before the end of the month.

You may have noticed that I have added a couple of things to my side bars.  One is my Walk/Run miles for 2015.  Not off to a huge start yet because it is cold outside and I am a wuss.  Also I am being very lazy on my vacation from work.  Have to go back on Monday.

The other addition is a list of my quilting supplies that I will acquire in 2015.  This is meant to deter me from buying ANY fabric!  Though we all know that won't happen.  And, I already caved in to the desire for quilting stuff and bought myself a Bonnie Hunter book.  I have Orca Bay started and I am sure I could find the printed patterns around here somewhere if I really looked but I was hoping the book would inspire me to work on the quilt!!!!  Besides, this is only my second BH book-can you believe that?  I really want them ALL!

I did actually put the last few stitches on a baby quilt binding this evening making it my first finish for 2015 but I will have to wait for tomorrow to get a good picture.
I am also going to have to give in and go grocery shopping tomorrow :(  That means no PJs all day.
I am loving my quilty start to the new year!  Hope you are too!
Happy January
