Sneak Peek of Batik

Well I am madly sewing quilts to take to Canada with me in 4 weeks. EEK! I have two to make. One for Dad and one for Mom. I am very excited about both and they are very different. I just finished the top for Dad. The colors are inspired by Mexico. A little bit of summer and warmth in the drizzly winters of the West Coast.

Old Red Barn....

You really need to check out OLD RED BARN. She is hosting a sewing machine give away for a Janome 6600 machine. You need to post a comment and then we just wait until next Monday when the random number will let us know who wins. Yeah! Hopefully it will be someone I know...maybe me? Well I can always hope right?

I almost hesitate to make this post but...I like sharing good things!

Good Luck

P&C backing sneak peek

I finally finished the backing to this baby quilt. I like it almost more than the front. It takes so much longer the piece a backing than to use one large piece of cloth. The result though is worth it. I hope baby Madeline will enjoy it. More pictures when it is finished.

Chocolate and Peppermint quilt top

I am participating in the Old Red Barn Quilt Along. This is a quick quilt and I have modified it a little bit by adding some blocks that inspired the colorway. I am working on the backing right now and need to catch up and finish it this weekend. It is a smallish quilt that is going to a friend for her adorable new baby.

A short break

Traveling for the next no sewing for me.

SR and I are off to Brazil tomorrow for a week sans children. The kiddos are staying home in Florence with Auntie W. We are hopeful that all goes well in both hemispheres. More on the trip when we return and maybe a few pictures too. HAving never left our children for more than an overnight it's hard to say who is going to be more distraught about our absence. I have been giving the kids extra long hugs for the past few days. Storing up I guess.

Why Brazil you say? He is presenting at a conference and I am coming a long for the ride. I am having second thoughts but it's paid for now and the sitter is here. We also get to celebrate our 11th anniversary while we are there. Crazy.
