Hubby and I were out of town all weekend, and I have been without Internet service or cell phone service since Thursday. Whew! I’m happy to be home, and have a lot of catching up to do. So you can pretty much guess what I’ll be doing this week.
When we came home, I brought with me a quilt top from my sister that she asked me to quilt. It’s a rail fence design and the blue prints in this top are so pretty.
She doesn’t want a densely quilted pattern (drat!), just something that will keep the quilt soft and cuddly – but not a meandering stipple. I’m still tossing around some ideas, so if you have a suggestion I would love to hear it.
We had a busy but fun weekend. I didn’t do any sewing, so I’m anxious to get back into my sewing room this week. I feel like I’m having withdrawals!
I only have nine blocks left to quilt on my Checkered Past quilt. I might go back and add some quilting to the shoo fly blocks – those empty sashing spaces are calling to me!
I also have 10 gallons (yes, gallons!) of blackberries to make jam with and to put in the freezer for pies or cobbler. I’m pretty sure I see a pie happening sometime today – yum!
So that’s what I’m crushing on this week. I can’t wait to get started on my sister’s quilt, and I’m so close to having my quilt finished. Once those berries are done, I’ll be stitching away! How about you? I would love to see what you are working on or what has you excited to be in your sewing space. Remember, your crush can be anything sewing/quilting related – new fabric, a new tool, a new technique you’ve learned, or any project you are working on. Come join the party!
