I WILL let you know if anything changes!) It has been nice to see all my fabric in one place and not have to go up and down the stairs to grab yet another fat quarter, yardage or whatever. I am also finding myself thinking of new color combinations as I sit and eat with Ayden at the dining room table
|greens,yellows and purples-oh MY!|
Even though I am working out of my dining room, it still feels so great to be able to have my own little nook for creativity to spread its wings freely: ) This is what I have started on recently, but now am at a stand still due to needing more fabric! See, so maybe my stash isn't so bountiful--he,he,he!
Really, though I need more yardage to make the LONGGGGG sashing strips and the borders too because this will be a twin size. A twin? I AM taking on another challenge with another twin size quilt you heard me right!
rainbow sherbet. I am taking the skinny sashing strip on each side of the wider sashing strip out completely. Don't really feel the need for it. It is definitely one that I have been wanting to tackle for awhile. I A.D.O.R.E. it very much!!! There have been doggie ears on the pages for this quilt for many months! Cute, fun and quite easy.
I have also started an embroidery Christmas pattern! I am stitching the Christmas trees on the far left bottom corner. Aren't they too cute for words! I just wish there was more updated posts on Annie Oakleaves (the designer of this pattern) blog:(
Eventually I would like to do a couple other patterns from the collection on the toweling fabric I have bought. (It's not osanburg cloth, but still very good fabric.) Anyway I cannot wait to see the whole towel stitched up. I will be sharing some pics on here of my WIP soon.
With all this sewing going on, you probably wouldn't guess that Ayden and I have been under the weather for the last couple of days! We are trying to get as much R&R as we possibly can before our trip to AL this coming Tues for my hubby's graduation!! So excited to see him and congratulate him and pin his new rank on his shirt:) Very happy times right now!!
SO please pray that we are at our best for our upcoming travels and that we arrive in AL safely!!
Go see Lavender Ridge for another sweet giveaway too!!
Hugs to all my blogger friends,
