Snowball WIP

This week we’ve been doing some spring cleaning. So far we’ve cleaned out the junk that lives in the laundry room and the kitchen. It’s amazing what we ‘stash’ thinking we’ll need it soon, only to forget about it for months (or years!)

In the sewing room I’ve started a new snowball memorial quilt. Once the layout and colors are approved I’m going to hopefully whip through this bad boy and be done done done! I want to work on smaller lap/crib sized quilts for a while. They’re easier to manage and much more fun for the ego. Nothing feels better than saying “ALL DONE!” after making the smallish projects to give my mind a break.

Here’s a Terrible No Good Very Bad shot of the WIP-

The snowball blocks are the memorial fabrics, the squares are the fabric the customer chose. Lets hope this one turns out pretty pretty!
Have a great day and keep sewing!

Current Work in Progress!

Chugging along! Electronics are situated, camera cord in hand, modem has been replaced and new phone is on the way. We also managed to make it through a round of the stomach bug, some icky weather and a slooooow day at the market. No fun, no fun, but much better now, and Ollie now has THREE teeth to boot! (This is the kid who started rolling over front to back and back to front on the same day, later started crawling AND cruising within 24 hours, so of course he’d get three teeth instead of one. “Go big or go home” he says.)

Current work in progress
This is the current quilt I’m working on for a customer. It’s a memory quilt, made from the father’s clothing. He really had some fun tastes, and I’m a bit jealous of his spunk. I’m sure he would have been quite the guy to spend the day talking to over coffee and a doughnut. So this is the final layout, all ready to get sewn up (ASAP because I’m so far behind! Eeeeeep!) The other side has plaids and stripes, with gray borders.
I think the late night coffee is finally wearing off, so time for me to attempt some sleep! Don’t forget, only 11 more days till Christmas!!!!!!!!!
