I am taking this one with me to Florida for Cayden who is now ON THE MOVE. Just started walking!
Not sure why the pictures are so pinky! I was shooting really quickly. This was made with bright orange and blue Kona cottons and novelty 5.5 squares.
I haven't done much sewing and one of the reasons was my 20 year old Janome was in the shop. I have wound soooo many bobbins on her that the clutch was gone and had to be replaced. I also cracked the bobbin casing somehow and so she needed some TLC time with my man, Warren. He told me she is as good as new and ready for another 20 years. Yeah!
A couple of Fridays ago, I spent a day of sewing with some quilting friends. I made a big dent in my Fabric Fling project that I started on retreat. This is the perfect project for an Open Sew. No thinking, just sewing strips together. I have half of the strip block sets together. They are now pressed and squared up. I also pulled out another UFO/WIP which is my Winter Wonderland. I am still working on the "blue"work blocks. A friend had her top completed on Friday. It is gorgeous and compelled me to pull it out for some attention. I still have three BIG redwork blocks to complete but each stitch is a stitch closer to done!
I am also working on my guild's challenge quilt. Don't know if it will get done by the deadline but it will get done. Here's a preview of what it looks like on my design wall right now. The challenge was to use an "ugly" fabric which was given to us.
Headed to Florida Thursday evening for an extended weekend. Then my sissy from Florida turns around on the following Friday to come to CT for a graduation party in Mass. Our little brother's triplets are graduating from high school. So a family reunion of sorts will take place. Things should settle down after that and hopefully sewing will resume at a quicker pace than the proverbial "snails' pace"! Happy stitching!
