My Weekly Progress Report

No finishes this week; unless prepping for the puppy counts.  We have a collar, bowl, leash, bed, crate, and toys.  I am feeling so ready to bring her home tomorrow!

As for sewing... let's check in shall we?  (We will pretend it's still Wednesday)


Happy Garden (king sized)
I still have to finish the quilting.  I bet on session will complete it and I think I have found the perfect binding color.  I appreciate all the feedback on what color to use!  The ideas ranged, but blues and reds really topped the ideas.  After much thought and contemplation I think I am going to borrow Becky's idea of going with blood red after my little incident.  It's fitting and funny... but I also realized it will help the cherries and strawberries in the prints pop.  I'm looking forward to calling this King size d-u-n... and it's funny because we could really have used the quilt tonight... it's chilly again.

No progress sadly. 
Crewel Spring Flowers

X Marks the Spot
Nada sewing-wise, but I did pick up the yellow and pink solids and I think it will get me past the point I have been stuck on for so long.  I'm looking forward to playing with this quilt again!

Katie Fiber Art
No action here.

I have been very inspired this week too!  Do you read Quilting Arts?  Since the first one that was put in my hands a few months ago to the new subscription that has been put in my mailbox (thank you Monika you are my sewing angel for sure!), I have been bit by the fiber art bug hard!

Just check out these examples of detailed, textured, and color rich fiber art.  I'm seriously in love and I think I am finding my true style!

I also have been bit by the clothes making bug.  Specifically dresses and skirts.  These fabrics jumped into my arms and I think would make lovely clothing.  If only the little sewing gnomes would visit my sewing room one night and make it so.  If not, I will have to give it a go *wink*

And there you have it. 

That's pretty much what has been on my sewing brain when I can spare a puppy free thought.  Sammy (soon to be new Happy puppy joining us), got a clean bill of health today... which means we get to pick her up tomorrow.  Words can not describe.  I'm getting gushy and excited and nervous all in one moment. 

It's perfection... exactly what I needed right now.  Can't wait to share more!!

Looking good. I'm loving the red for the binding!
Missing from the list is one "You Can sew-a-thon" item ;) Want me to have a think about it?
