Little Quilt Progress ...

Lots of progress is happening on my English Paper Piecing!
Eleven stars are done! (That's more than double last week's total. The "doubled in a week" statistic is not likely to happen again!)

(Not sewing the stars to each other just yet.)
Here's another look at the same stars ...

And, in other handsewing news, I have not forgotten about the yo-yos that have been in progress for such a long time ... Here is the latest group of yo-yos ... Long-term project ...

I almost feel like I should mute the colors on this yo-yo photo, after the delicate rainbows of the vintage-y diamonds! The random look of this yo-yo project is fun. It's kind of relaxing to get to put colors together that DON'T coordinate or "look good together". (My oldest daughter laughs at that statement.) 

It's nice to have several handwork/armchair projects going, for those times when it's not convenient to be at the sewing machine. I'm trying to remember to work the yo-yos into the mix, in between the vintage diamonds, the mini hexagons, and the sock-knitting... 

Pieceful Life has a "Little Quilt Monday" link-party every week. Since this is a little quilt in progress, I'm linking this post there. Check out the other neat projects at this week's Little Quilt Monday!

Take Your Time Tuesdays are a fun place to see hand-stitched work at So Happy To Sew!
I'll be linking this post to this week's Take Your Time Tuesday!


  1. Cute stars and I always like yo yos : )

  2. Your stars are great, I love English paper piecing. I've gone a bit hexagon mad!

  3. Pretty! I do like the fabric you bought too. It will look good together!
