How are you? And what have you been up to?
I have badly neglected popping in to share my crafty goings-on lately...and it's not like me to be quiet for so long ;) There is no simple explanation... just the general busy-ness of life and the lack of time to gather my thoughts and put them in cohesive sentences, much less with photos!
I thought about doing a super-long post to show you everything I've been working on, but have opted for a simple catchup over the next couple of days...sound good?
Let's start with fabric :)
I received the last of my 2013 Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block of the Month recently, and had a catchup on the blocks before attacking the finishing kit...just a little bit daunting :)
I put the final borders on earlier in the week, and it is heading off to the quilter tomorrow...YIPPPEEEE! I'll show you some detailed pictures after I sew the binding down...it's a very pretty quilt. I have really enjoyed receiving my package from the U.S. each month, and can't wait to start the 2014 program, featuring Avalon fabric by Fig Tree and Co...bring it on!
In a weak moment (when my sewing space was looking a bit empty) I signed up for Camille Roskelley's Craftsy class on piecing pre-cuts, thinking I would use some of my much-loved Bonnie and Camille fabrics. Funnily enough, I totally balked when it came to cutting up my precious Marmalade layer cake to make the first quilt LOL...I just couldn't go through with it!
The class is aimed at beginners and I felt the first project, Piece of Cake 3, was just a bit too simple for my gorgeous Marmalade...so I started a different quilt which I've wanted to make for a while. I'm just stitching a little bit each day, and will show you when I get a bit more done...slow and steady :) Hopefully I won't have the same problem with the next quilt in the course...I'm hoping to use Happy-Go-Lucky!
Speaking of slow and steady, I finally have some progress to share on Scandinavian Rose...
So that's what's been happening in fabric. I'll be back tomorrow with a Project Life catchup!
