W.I.P. Update

 

So many projects, not enough hours in the day!  🙂 

Here are some pics of what I’m working on:

There’s the “Rest Time Roll-up” mentioned in an earlier post, four more rows and it’ll be ready for borders…..

……the “Pheasant Quilt”, also from an earlier post, taking an extended break from this one…..

…….a bargello crib quilt (also, previously mentioned)….trying to think of the perfect words to applique in the brown rows…..

…..the newest addition to the W.I.P.’s, a hand-painted  “quilted” gourd birdhouse, just needs a few coats of glossy paint and it’ll be done…..

…….and another ‘quilted’ gourd in a much less finished stage, needs alot yet….

……..and, of course, there is the never-ending job of laundry, cleaning, cooking….you get my drift. 🙂

 I am waiting for a sunny day to take some pics outside of my quilt-top stash to post on my portfolio (coming soon).  Hopefully, tomorrow…….

Until then…

Be Creative!

Rest Time Roll-up Continued…..

Progress!  What a lovely word!  The Rest Time Roll-up is coming along splendidly.  Here’s what I’ve worked on:

I cut my pieces the other day so today I began sewing them together to make triangles for pinwheels. 

 I then sewed them together to make my pinwheels. 

Then it was back to the real life of “mommyhood”….stay tuned.

A new dawn, a new day, a new project!

After a long weekend of yard work, I’m ready to start a new project.  I really enjoyed making Emma’s Kindergarten Roll-Up, now dubbed “Rest Time Roll-Up”, so I’m going to make another one!  I took some time over the weekend to come up with a new pattern and I’m hoping that the finished project will turn out as well as Emma’s did! 

Here’s what I’ve got going on so far:

 

 

Pretty fabrics!  These fabrics are from a fat quarter bundle called, “Neutral Mediterranean”, which I purchased from Joann Fabrics.  I’ve added white to my palette as well.

 I cut four of the five fabrics from the bundle (plus the white) into triangles to be sewn into half-triangle squares. ( That’s on the agenda for today.)  Stay tuned……
