I really think we are not going to have Spring in these parts. Grey, cold, rain, snow, wind.......... But it makes for great sewing time - I don't go out in that stuff unless absolutely necessary! I finished up the 'Get Your Mrs Clause On' doll quilts. The hourglass one I thought was too 'dark' for a child's dolly quilt, so that got put aside - maybe for the shop and a grown up doll quilt.
And I got the binding on that quilt back from the long armer. This was a 16-patch QAL last year??? Someone remind me and I will update the info as I like to give credit where due. This is Petite Odile with Kona Cream. I totally forgot about this quilt until I pulled the border fabric (for another quilt) and then it hit me!! It is backed with a Timeless Treasure x-wide Fleur cream texture and using Arnold's Attic (barn red) for the binding. I will leave this laid out on the side table so I can throw some stitches in the binding inbetween other things.
How exciting - a box. I am participating in a 'colour' swap. I had to fight off two furries for the box, for the wrapping paper, for the ribbon.............. I had to hold up the flap as this is a secret swap and I don't want to give away anything - especially the color. This is now taped up, labeled, and ready to go out in the morning mail - along with the doll quilts.
You know I am honest about my mess - no fancy studio for me. But this really has to be conquered this week before I do anything more. My SIL will be coming down this week to sew, and I like to give her all the room (machines and cutting table in another room) and no interuptions - so a good time to work in this mess. Plus, it may just be re-located and I want it easier to move.
Remember the Mug Rug Blog Hop is running thru to the 18th,
Enjoy your week
