Finders Keepers.....

my lost mo-jo has been found!! And a BIG thank you goes out to Tonya for dreaming up the project *VBS* I never have trouble starting something new...it's finishing the old that is my pitfall. With re-newed energy from my newly found mo-jo, I jumped right into finishing up this long ago project. 15 rows of 12 broken dishes each, and I have a nice 54" X 76" flimsay. The last 5 rows need joining up to the others, but hurray for being to this point!
 I know I teased you about the witches undies fabric. Here is that newly made block *VBS* That yellow bra sticks out like a sore themb!
 These are the latest 5 that were added to the pile. It's alot of fun making them, and its not hard to run other UFO type projects through the machine using the Jacks block as my leader and ender. It's been a beautiful sunny but mild weekend here in my part of WI, lets hope it continues right into autumn.

I hope it's an underwire, riding a broom can be very jostling. Happy sewing.

Love the broken dishes! Looks great! Makes me think that perhaps that is what I should do with my half-square-triangles now. Hmmmm? Maybe?
Glad your Mo-jo is back in full swing! Mine is only at half speed...
Your witches undies are a blast! A real conversation piece!
Happy stitchings! 8-)

Oh,oh, oh, that scrappy broken dishes sings to me,,,,

isn't it funny, the minute you get your mojo back, the machine is humming away like crazy and you don't even want to stop to eat.
