It took a few days after getting back from vacation to get back to the sewing machine. I think goal setting at the beginning of the month is helpful for me to focus.
I found these cool bins at Costco, made by Creative Options. I thought they would be a perfect fit for some of my WIPs.
My 4th of July Table Runner:
My soon to be machine appliqued mug rugs:
Mystery Quilt 2005 in progress:
Mystery Quilt 2003(?) finished top:
I cut up some of my newest fabric (no pics yet) to start working on the party outfits this week. And I even did a little bit of piecing (for the mystery quilt):
I have 10 more little (these measure 5" square unfinished) 9-patch blocks to make in a slightly different pattern to finish step 13 in this project. I'm a little concerned about my fabric choices (I've learned a lot in the last 9 years!) and wonder if some of my reds read too dark. We'll see once it's done.
Lastly, the kiddos and I stopped by my first shop for the Row by Row Experience, The Intrepid Thread in Milpitas, CA. It was my first time in their shop. (The kids loved the basket of blocks to play with while I shopped!) I had a really hard time focusing on the project I was there to shop for with all the beautiful fabric around me. I did manage to only impulse buy 2 fat quarters in addition to my project fabric (photos coming on Sunday). Here's their lovely spring leaf row. My stash of greens should work nicely.
