Below left are two little wool projects from Karen at Farmhouse Woolens. Do go over and sign up for her newsletter - it's always a good read and you never know what might be in there just for newsletter subscribers! Karen recently opened a brick and mortar store - I sure wish I lived closer! The pattern on the right is called Peter, Paul and Aunt Mary! It caught my eye at Pendleton Quiltworks yesterday. We were in town for an oil change and just had to make a quick stop ;>)
I signed up for a two-day class at the end of July at our LQS to make this Crazy Eight table topper. The shop had Gobble Gobble on sale, and since I love anything to do with fall I thought why not! (Yes, I added to my stash, but I couldn't help myself!) The picture on the pattern cover really doesn't do this pattern justice! I saw the class sample in the shop which is fantastic!
Summer has finally arrived here - 100's are predicted for later in the week...I've had this Lila Tueller fabric for a while now and saw this Serendipity Studio pattern - I'm going to make the sleeveless top on the bottom right of the pattern. Perfect for hot weather!
Uh, oh....Karen at Farmhouse Woolens did it to me again! The homespuns below were so right for my Fall stash....I adore the top one with the crows. The photo reads blue but it's really black!
I'm making the apron pattern below to give to a friend later this summer, and another table topper to use with some of my Christmas/Halloween stash - see...I am really using mostly stash so far this year!
Winter Wonderland blocks are all done, the setting blocks are cut and it's just waiting to be laid out on a friend's design wall then sewn together! I really wanted to enter it in the September show our guild hosts, but I don't think it will be ready. However, I'm sending a top off to Mary at Quilt Hollow in a couple of weeks - maybe, just maybe, I can put it in the show!
Friday morning Mr. Squash and I head to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show! We just found out that we have been bumped out of our condo rental there into a "premier rental house" on the property! There is a movie being filmed there -- the actress staying in our space doesn't want to move, so the studio is paying for the entire rental house for us! Now that's a score! If we have internet access I'll post from there, otherwise there will be a full report upon our return! Who knows... I'm certain there will be more than one bloggy meeting!
