It’s March already. It came in here like a lamb. It was a pretty day (as is today), if a little chilly, but spring is definitely on its way.
Rather than my usual Wednesday post where I categorize all the things I’m doing, I thought I might change the format this week. You can tell me in the comments which you prefer. Or not. I just finally realized that the way I was doing it might be pretty boring, so if you were among those who thought so, you can be happy! Besides, I do like to shake things up a little now and then. Just a little.
Since I am home until the very last day of the month, I am still planning to spend this time sewing. I say, “still planning,” because life keeps getting in the way. Hope springs eternal, though! My workroom re-do is slowly taking shape (why, oh why, did I decide to wash so many things when I already had everything all torn up?). I am seriously in love with having that huge work surface. Problem is, I go down with every intention of making a place for things and I get distracted by long-buried projects. Add in last week’s book challenge and the fact that all my paper supplies are now uncovered, and…well. Let’s just say that while things are still a mess, I’ve gotten several pages done.
Speaking of lambs (we were, weren’t we?), I spied the fabric bundle below in the adorable SewModern space at QuiltCon (they brought in a vintage travel trailer, for Pete’s sake!). It’s Homestead from Birch Fabrics. SewModern had tons of great fabrics, but I really loved this one. Even though I do have a couple of baby quilts coming up, the honest truth is that I knew if I made quilts from these fabrics I wouldn’t want to give them away. Well, that and my suitcase was full. Truly.
So, for the moment, even though I am in clean-up-the-workroom-hell, I will spend the rest of this week sewing. I plan to have something to show soon. I will also be back later today (or maybe tomorrow) to tell you where I am with the 350 Blocks challenge (here’s a hint: February wasn’t as productive as I’d hoped).
Even though I am a terrible follower-alonger, the projects that are first and foremost on my list are: Triangle salad (because the rest of the group has already gotten theirs put together and I am still somewhere around week 2), and the Splendid Sampler (honestly, I am not sure I will follow this one all the way through, I have only made one block and there are 99 more to go).
There is one other very cool project that I am super-excited about. Rather than tell you about it myself, though, I will have its originator do a guest post very soon. Trust me, you will want to be involved.
So, until next time…
