Oh thegrand plans I had for the summer - finishing about a dozen WIPs, cleaning closets, cupboards, pantries, windows, etc.,travel out west, travel to the Keys, lose at least 5 pounds, etc., etc., I'm proud to say I did every single thing on my list - with the exception of one thing - and that was finish ANY WIPs. I basically did not step one foot into the studio this entire summer.
But alas, summer fades to fall and Brina is back to school (sniff, sniif - I always have an empty heart when she does) and with a spotlessly clean homstead (both inside and out) I have begun to ready myself for the holiday sewing frenzy that approaches every year about this time.
Yesterday I visited two of my favorite haunts to stock up on Autumn and Winter fabrics - batiks, Christmas prints, hand dyes, thread, perle cotton, papers, etc. So fun! For the next week or so I will be sketching out a "to do" list and a few designs. I did finish this nautical quilt and a few little stuffies.
I've also signed up for Jude's "Cloth to Cloth" workshop which starts on September 15th - can't wait for that.
Next up is quilting this last top. I've bordered it with a gorgeous hombre and am backing it with white linen. So pretty.
Would love to hear what you've got on the design wall, easle, work table or desk!
