I'm pretty sure I've been inoculated with a sewing needle these last few weeks. Either that or I've been possessed by Crafting Demons. How else could I possibly explain the level of crafty activity that's been going on in my sewing room? I'm just going with it - who knows how long it will last ? By this time next week it's entirely possible that I won't want to look at my sewing machine for a month.
Lounging Around is finished. Two quilt finishes in 7 weeks is unheard of around here. Happily I LOVE this quilt and so does Mr. P.
I did my first ever quilt label for this quilt. I'm a real quilter now. And in the process of showing you this -I'm also outing Mr. P. I seem to be doing that to my family a lot lately.
Kate was kind enough to send me some fabric sheets to try out for labels and I just went for it. Kate, you've been immortalised forever on a quilt as a thank you. If it wasn't for you- this label would never have been made.
Little P's blocks are all sewn together and I've started the back too. Borders next. This is another quilt I'm really enjoying making. What's going on? Three quilts on the go and I'm not hating any of them....
I made two more Dresden Blocks this week and appliqued them and the 3 from last week. I've been working on this quilt now for about 7 weeks but since it feels like I've been flashing weekly progress pictures since about oh I dunno ...the dawn of time ...I've spared you this week.
I finally dragged my sorry behind out of the sewing room long enough to pay some attention to the computer desk drawers today. This reno project has taken almost a year ( 8 months of which the desk sat outside doing nothing but waiting ) and has been fraught with unfortunate events. It looks like the pain has been worth it. I love those drawers. I love those handles. I love my new desk.
When the dresser is finally finished, we're putting the paint away for a while...
Miss P and I went op shopping on Friday and scored some crazy bargains. I bought this for Little P because he is currently obsessed with vacuum cleaners ...
He doesn't know his colours yet so he doesn't know it's pink ..
And he scored some more toys. Miss P told me most emphatically that the recorder was staying here at my house.
I'm working on indoctrinating Little P into the "you can never have enough shoes" club. The boots are his. They light up when you stamp your feet. Or when you throw the boots which is what he spent 20 minutes doing Friday afternoon. Bonus points to anyone who can guess who the pink pair belong to...
And I scored this fabulous carry all which will be perfect for toting sewing projects around. I'm trying to think of ways to make it look pretty. Any suggestions?
Miss P and I didn't get to our monthly craft project on Friday but magically these frames got painted anyway.. I think fairies live at my house. Cups of tea magically appear when I am thirsty as well. Stay tuned for the finish to this amazingly simple project later this week.
May the craft be with you.
Goals for this week
3 more Dresden Blocks
Half the snowball quilt top to be completed (since I slacked off for FNSI)
