Well, I did not get to post anything last week! This summer has been kicking my butt and taking up all my sewing time! The girls have only 5 1/2 weeks left of summer break though, so I am soaking up all the time that I can get with them while they are here! I did get a day in the sewing room this week, and wow, it really felt good to sew again! I forget sometimes how much I miss it! Here is what I have been working on:
Then I started on the 10th block, but got as far as piecing together the paper piecing pattern after printing it. I need to sit down and work out which fabrics I want to use and where... I might go for a graduated color look...we shall see! The pattern kinda scares the crap outta me lol. It will be my fourth attempt at paper piecing, the third being the block above!
Then I pieced together the first row of triangles ... there was A LOT of swearing and seam ripping involved. lol I keep at it though and after a 5 to 27 minute break I persevered darnnit! Then, I promptly decided to set it aside and work on it when I have more patience lol.
Last, but not least I got the backing finally for my dresden runner, so I basted it and it is ready for quilting :) Hopefully I will get to work on it soon as I really love how it is turning out! The pic is awful, it was nighttime by the time I was done lol
That is what I have been up to! How about you?!
On a side note I wanted to say... If I stop by your blog, leave a comment and a link back to my blog, it is because I am sharing in a hop with you. I copy and paste my blog link (not the whole comment) but I never ever ever leave a comment that is not genuine and directed specifically at someone. So, just...ya know, so you know :) I do not like when I see people do that either so I just wanted to be on the up and up!
With that said, link me up if I haven't already stopped and commented, I would love to share and see what you have been up to as well! :) Happy Wednesday!
