I found a fire extinguisher among the mess in my sewing room. Which just proves that sometimes I'm so creative I'm on fire. Sewing room tidied - check.
I finished 10 more Blocks for Indy and Lola's String quilt. Right after I spent a couple of hours cutting strings from my stash. A basket of strings is a visual feast full of unknown possibility.
THE BLACKWOOD CHAIR makes a re-appearance this week. It's naked-ness has been covered with two coats of primer. Progress.
I primed this old picture frame ready to be made into something (hopefully) gorgeous. You'll see it if it turns out like my original vision. If not you'll never hear about it again.
I looked at a box of partially completed blocks that had been in WIP-Less Protection (I'm coining that phrase by the way ) since February and thought if "I don't start doing this bit by bit it's never going to be finished". I'm not feeling super confident that my points will match up but it's all a learning process. I sewed 50 pairs of these together this week.
I bought these two leadlight doors as a feature for the kitchen windowsill. (Why do I keep buying things that need to be painted?)
I wish I'd never told Mr. P I have a blog because it's hard to keep my fabric buying addiction a secret when he comes on here and reads about it. 6 yards of Hushabye to back the snowball quilt (eventually ) at a bargain price.
And my finger slipped on another US eBay auction ...and I accidentally bought these appliques as well. 66 of them.
Spotlight and I got friendly yesterday and I bought more lime green thread. The other one is still in the void somewhere that also eats odd socks. Little P's quilt is now 2/3rds quilted. Said quilt did not want orange quilting in it. Everytime I tried to use orange it went loopy at the back. Finally I took the hint and did extra red.
I'm offering a prize to the person who can guess correctly what I'm going to do with the picture frame. Four fat quarters of Kashmir IV by Moda. (Featured in the windmill blocks above). If more than one person guesses correctly I'll do a random drawing from all the correct entries. You have until my Slack Tea Thursday post this week to have a guess.
My Goals for this week:
