Look I have been making progress

My favorite thing about summer is actually have time to work on all of my projects. I am so happy to have the time to create again and feeling well enough to do so. It is so nice to feel like I am making progress. I really haven't felt that way in a while. It is a nice change of pace. I have accomplished since oh last Friday afternoon (when the students were officially done with school)

First, I started a new project from my new book, that my mom bought me for my birthday, Simply Retro with Camille Roskelley. I totally adore the book and had to start something. On Friday night I started Adorn. I just love these little equilateral triangles


Adorn- Simply Retro Work in Progress

Then I decided I needed a new bag for my trip. Actually, I have been searching for one for over a month now. I wanted one that could cross over my body for when I was being touristy. I was having trouble finding a pattern I really liked. Luckily, on Saturday, I found the Sidekick tote by Noodlehead. I  bought the pattern, some fabric and some notion and I pulled some fabric from my stash. This project is going to have to be a quick turn around. So far it is all cut out and I am looking forward to working on it today.

I also did a whole bunch of cutting of projects that I need to get done sooner rather than later. I am making a commissioned quilt for a friend's first grandchild. She really liked my jungle bungle quilt so this will be a repeat with a couple twist in fabric.

Then Katie is putting together a raffle quilt for her shop and donating the funds to a local organization in our town. She asked me to make a block and of course I agreed.

Last but not least, I am getting my a Season by Hand project done. It is less than a 10 days until my post day... but I am going on vacation in less than a week so I am hoping to get it done and my post schedule in just a couple days. However, that shouldn't be too hard. I mean just look at that pretty fabric. Who wouldn't want to play with them? I hadn't planned on buying fabric for this project, but this charm pack just called out to me and said take me home.

I have been a very busy gal and with some deadline fast approaching. So, I better get to work.

  6. I just got that book too. I really like that she focuses on simplifying the piecing process. Your "Adorn" looks like it's going to be great!

  7. Wow, you are such a busy bee! Amazing!!!
    I have to wait till the end of the month before the school are out here. The summer vacations here in the Netherlands are only 6 or 7 weeks! So far I am still busy with grading reports and art works and I try to get some sewing done every day, but I am longing for full sewing days! Enjoy your sewing time and I wish you a great trip!

  8. The equilateral triangles and the sidekick tote look especially great. Is that a Kaffe Fassett Roman Glass fabric? Looks great with the charcoal!
