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….
