Here is my January naked block. As you can see I will be using jewel tones with fancy fabrics and cottons. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to do all 12 blocks, but do hope to get some done ahead. You would think living in a small RV I would have time, but I guess the building of the new house is really taking up a lot of spare time. Hope to be in the house in a few weeks. Can't wait to get my own space again! I spent time today sorting my stash that so many generous people have given me. In my former studio everything was pretty well organized in drawers of beads, laces, motifs, ribbons, etc. In the new studio I am going to organize according to colors of the materials. Will see how this works. Well, need to start stitching.

I did reactivate my blog to do the 12 month CQ blocks, but am going to also do the Take a Stitch Tuesday that Sharon B. has on her site pintangle.com. It is going to be a little hard the first month or two as we should be moving into our new home that is the result of having lost everything in the Texas wildfires that hit our county, Bastrop, September 4. We have had to move several times since due to various problems and I must say this has definitely been a growing experience for us. Even though hard, it has been full of blessings. It has caused my husband and I to really get back to what is important in our lives. We do know that we are on the downhill run of our lives and we want to make the most of the days we have left. I have reevaluated what I really want to spend my spare time on and it is definitely CQ and more handwork. I have done many single blocks but not a total top. This will make me focus on doing that. The TAST will help me expand my stitches which I plan on adding to whatever block I am working on. I am so looking forward to this. I have the fabrics I plan on using and will post photos when I get back to our RV where they are stored. We are at our daughter's home as we lost heating in the RV due to a mouse building a nest in the heater fan. One of the many living problems we have faced! Anyway, this too will pass and soon we will be settled. Can't wait!!!
