Ok, enough with that. I have some fun stuff going on in the sewing arena.
Do you remember my giant granny quilt? Well, I have started another one. It's for Mabel's room, and I think the colors will be perfect for her. It's going to be awesome. I can't wait to share it. I also have a tutorial coming soon. (I have lots of patterns and tutorials in the works... )
I've made more progress since these photos, which I may have already shared, but I still think they are fun... :)
I also have this sneak peek I'm working on for the Winterkist blog hop. Have you seen the other projects?! They are amazing! This is such fun fabric to work with! I am almost finished and I am really loving it! I feel like I'm trying to sew puzzle pieces together, but I'm getting the hang of it and it is fun!
Otherwise I finished up my toy basket last week as part of the Practically Paper Piecing blog hop. I love all the ideas everyone has for using up their blocks. :)
I made The Master List for all linky parties! If you have a linky or know of some, will come link them up? I think it will be a great resource if we can just get a good collection of them added. You can link up events/blogs even if they are not yours.
I've also got an awesome surprise coming up! OOOOOHHH! I can't wait! An awesome list of bloggers + LOTS of amazing prizes + sewing + quilting + tutorials + 80's + a linky party + pictures + judges = a secret I'll tell you more about next week!!! :D
I really like how Karen put it in her post the other day. She's like a swan on the blog - looks so graceful and smooth on top of the water, but underneath the water their legs are moving frantically to create their motion. I agree that I feel somewhat the same way lately. :) Hopefully I'll be able to share more soon.
linking up at Freshly Pieced as usual.
What are you working on this week? Are you busy getting ready for school?
My family is all together at Bear Lake this week and I am so sad to miss out on the fun...
but we are having our own fun here I guess. Next year. ;)
p.s. I have a question: what makes a good Quilt-Along? And how do you know if people are going to be interested in joining you? Do you just do it and hope for the best? Any tips or advice?
