    In my younger life when I was a struggling Mom trying to give my daughter dance lessons I made a deal with the Dance Studio owner, I'd make costumes and she'd give my daughter free lessons. I spent every winter for a few years making a couple hundred tutus and fringed tap skirts on elastic sequined bands. Most nights found me sewing until 12 or 1 so all of those skirts would be ready for spring recital. Once those were finished it was time to alter dance costumes. All of that ended when she started high school and I was extremely relieved to be out of the costume business. When granddaughter started dance I threatened my daughter that she was not to mention in any way that I knew how to make tutus. I still have nightmares about all that tulle and those sequins! Kudos to you for your work.

    I'm off to a good start this week! Somehow I have 3 projects going on at the same time, seems it's either feast or famine when I sew.
    Completed the 3rd row on my kissing coins quilt, have the top to another project all pieced and now working on the owl appliques for it, and making a woven fabric basket that is a fun project.
    Will post some pics as I make more progress.

    The Floating Hexagons are floatin' 'round my brain...but I have most of them assembled. I have about ten that need to be resewn. When that is completed it is time to add the sashing and little cornerstones, so I'll be cutting a lot of inch and a half strips. Boy it was cold and windy today. It felt good to stand over the steam iron.

    tI usually loathe ironing. Some days, like if it is freezing cold, there are exceptions.
    I haven't sewn anything yet this week, just petting yhe fabrics from my M* order, and ordering Angela Walter's FMQ Workbook.

    I finished assembling the hexagons today and the sun broke forth from the clouds...lol Now I need to make the 1 1/2" background strips and cornerstones for my hexagons to float in. Click image for larger version.

    Today I put the last border on the tops I made while in CA. Four flimsies complete and on the stack waiting to be quilted. I'll be leaving with DH on Saturday for another business trip and will once again have nine, 9 hour sewing days so am packing more fabric and getting ready for marathon sewing days. When I stay home from a trip I will have to fire up the long arm and convert some of them from flimsies to quilts. I posted pictures of the four in Show and Tell

    Angelia, I love the look of your quilt, great job!
    As for tulle skirts, oh my! Brings back memories of sewing ice skating competition dresses and costumes. Haven't we all done something like that for our kids over the years? Add onto those Halloween costumes and we learn to become flexible sewers.
    As for me right now, I'm still doing my 365 blocks and I must say that now that the blocks are becoming more complex, I'm glad I started. I'm learning to do new blocks and pay more attention to my seams.
    I'm working on Valentine's Day hearts that I will give to my four children who are going to be visiting this weekend. After those I will make a few dozen for the teachers I work with, it's become a tradition of sorts I guess.
    My next project is a I Spy quilt for my only gran child's first birthday later this year. I've decided to do a disappearing nine patch design and now just have to find fabric for the boarders , hopefully from my stash. 2016 is my stash busting year, I hope.
