Hmmm….I haven’t felt like blogging much.  I’m not sure why.  It may have to do with the teenage vampire books that are consuming my time.  Such a guilty pleasure….

When I wasn’t reading this weekend, I managed to get the studio mostly cleaned up.  I thought about posting a before picture and then chickened out.  It really was that bad.  I have a pile of unfinished projects staring me in the face and a larger pile of fabric that still needs to be sorted out.  Normally, the mess doesn’t bother – it’s a creative wonderland, in some ways.  I can see what I have and I fling things about, getting excited as I see new possibilities and then – wham! – I am creating as I go.  This time it’s different.  The mess has been keeping me from the sewing machine and I am trying to change that.


I did manage to piece all 96 arcs for my single girl quilts.  Yes, quilts plural, as in more than one.  They are both twin sized, going in Kate’s room.  Anyhow, I put one of each square together as incentive to get going on these.  The fabric on the right is going on Kate’s window seat which was built well over a year ago, painted about 6 months ago and will finally be getting a cushion in the next few weeks.  I am not making the cushion so it will probably actually get finished unlike some other things!  Ha!  And as I look at this photo, the squares aren’t laid out correctly – the balance is off somehow.  I’ll have to do something about that.

I have been knitting – I even designed a hat and am writing up the pattern.  But there are no photos of the finished one yet.  It’s too bloody hot here – in the 80’s.  When the temps dip later this week, I will show and tell.

Back to Bella and Edward….
