Planning Ahead or Not?

I love to plan my quilting projects ahead of time.

We aren't GOing to talk about how cold it is today all over the USA (even though I've had to GO outside two times already to change the outside feral cats water bucket from ice to water).   We are expecting a high of 32 today and the wind is feels like 10.  Yikes!  That's really cold for South Texas. Our local weatherman said we can expect some snow late Thursday.  Whoa!  Nellie!  Wait a minute.  Snow in San Antonio, Tx?  That's what they are saying, so I might be talking about snow in a couple more days, instead of using my GO cutter.

Now, where was I?  Ok...yes, now I remember......we are talking about planning ahead.

Have I told you  I love my GO cutter??  If you don't know the answer to that question then you haven't been reading my blog for the last 6 months, have you?  Nothing's more fun than cutting with it, (well maybe eating some chocolate) so that's what I did yesterday.  (I cut... and ate some chocolate.)  

Don't you just love the combo of chocolate brown & bright pinks?  mmmmh! looks like Valentine Candy.

Thanks to the 2 1/2" strip die, I can cut many, many small squares too!

Yup!  I'm gonna need a bunch of these.

The ideas are just dancing around in my head  how I'm GOing to be using these small squares, and I'm planning ahead for when I get some extra sewing time.

Drats!  I promised myself I'd finish a UFO every month and February is here.  Ok, I'll put the "chocolate & pink" squares away for now. 

Am I really planning ahead or did I just want to use my GO??   I'll never tell.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. You wanted to use that GO, but it's alright cuz if I had one I would use it too:)

  2. Sounds like you have your own little "charm" maker, VERY COOL!

  3. We all know, you wanted some play time. Nothing wrong with that, especially if it gets you motivated to the UFO pile.

  4. Gorgeous colours.. *sigh* wishing I had a GO!

  5. Beautiful fabrics. I'm eager to see what you create.


  6. Great colors/fabrics! I've never even seen a Go in action...yet!
    I look forward to your creation...
