After a nine day long vacation in Washington DC we all came home refreshed, renewed, and full of energy to tackle the day to day work, and activities. The down side to such a wonderful vacation is that we came home to an empty fridge, closets full of winter clothes to wear on our warm and wonderful Spring time, and to stand face to face with the mother of all laundry loads. Nine days of vacation turned into a nine day Spring cleaning marathon. I'm done thank you to the help of my fairies and my lovely, and understanding husband who helped me with last bits during the weekend.
So I'm back to normal and happy to be able to post again. During my nine-day cleaning marathon, I gave myself little breaks here and there and I was able to finish a couple of blocks for ATWQ and one more embroidery piece for Hoop up, stitch and send swap.
I'm also the bearer of good news this week. I made the last block fro Cindra's ATWQ quilt. Her blocks are done!! I was excited for her, but also for me because that meant that my quilt was next in line, but guess what? It got mixed up and it's more than three quilts away :( I'll be patient....
For her I made a paper piecing pattern that I'll be sharing with you soon. I want to make a tutorial to go with it, and I can't wait. I'll start working on it soon.
And my last crafty endeavor of last week was this:
This is my Hoop Up piece for Kimmie, she asked for sewing imagery: threat, buttons, scissors, that kind of stuff. I couldn't find something I wanted to stitch so I made this pattern. By the way, this pattern will be available for you soon!
One last thing to show you...
I got these six half yards of Nicey Jane from Freshsqueezedfabrics. You would agree with me that getting these fabrics was a must, don't you??
It's good to be back!
