Sewing, sewing and more

I told you in my last post that I made the "Grab this Button" for Barbara Brackman's new BOW....well I wasn't sure she would use it, but she (or someone) emailed me and it's on her site.  I am so tickled that they liked it.  Yes I am a computer geek!
I have been sewing up a storm the last few days, but haven't finished anything.  My sewing area is a MESS!  But I am concurring projects and they are at different points of construction.  I have my Shine mini quilt ready to have the binding sewn down.  I think this will be my first finish of the new year.
I also sewed my last block for the Hoopsisters Feathered Star class I have been taking monthly to learn my embroidery machine.  I have learned a lot about thread, stabilizers, and pushing buttons to make the machine hum.
I also have looked at Pearl Pereira's
 new free BOM (P3 Designs)(See my page with 2015 BOMS).  I am having issues with my eyes and think I might try her Bountiful Baskets re-learning my machine applique for the baskets and using my friend's (Brenda's) wool for the flowers and leaves.  I think it will be better on my eyes since the pieces are small. I have also thought about embroidering the name of the flower and state on the block...not sure yet.  The quilt looks like it will be beautiful and Pearl gives great directions.
