I spent today wrestling with my overflowing scrap bins (more on that later!) and then sewed up the first block of the Solstice Star Series - the Ribbon Star - before Downton Abbey started. I have no plans at this time to make anything with this block (or any of the other blocks in the series for that matter) but sometimes it's nice to sew just for the sake of sewing. I do love me a pretty star block, and Faith puts together great tutorials. Sewing individual blocks like this are the perfect way to practice skills and pick up a few new ones, as well as experiment with fabric combinations without the pressure or commitment of a larger project. Perfect for a lazy Sunday.

I expect it will grow up to be something special someday.
