I had nothing - NOTHING - to take for my Guild's Sewing Saturday last weekend. (Really!)
Honestly, my choices were limited by self imposed restrictions.
- Some projects are awkward to cart around (so...no),
- I refuse to drag too much *stuff* with me, and
- I never take something that requires too much concentration, 'cause a girl's gotta be able to socialize!
Found a little gem I'd forgotten about!

I was so close to the finish line - the thing was already sandwiched and ready to quilt. Perfect for a Sewing Saturday project! All I needed to pack were my machine and some black thread!
I didn't quite finish on Saturday, but it's close. I'll keep you posted! :-)
Fresh off the Frame
I sooo love "frame shots" of quilts in progress. A person can really see the quilting when the light is right!

My next client chose a warm, earthy palette - and it is gorgeous. The black lends a sophisticated touch, and effectively highlights the showy print featured in the quilt.
Piecing on the back also shows off that beautiful print.
A passing illness derailed my quilting plans for a few days, but I'm feeling better this week. Onward and upward!
Here's a peek into my studio through the door that separates it from the rest of the house. Oh, my gosh! I was so scared of the colour, but I *LOVE* it!!!

It's all about paint, plumbing, and light fixtures at the moment. (We now have working sinks and toilets - so exciting!)
|Front entry fixture, newly installed!|
'Scuse the mess! Counters and flooring are still covered for protection, and there are details that still need finishing, but it's starting to come together! (Yep, the fireplace wall is purple!!!)
|Kitchen pendants, also newly installed!|
Things are happening outside, too.

I'm still not packing, but I'm not worried.
Things will unfold as they should, when they should.
In the meantime, I'll continue quilting until it's time to move. And then I will move. ;-)
(To everything - turn, turn, turn...)
