I haven't had a ton of sewing time this week, but I've been squeezing it in where I can. I've been dying to start a bunch of new projects (and I mean a bunch!), but I'm being responsible and working on my WIP's instead. Man, that is hard to do!!!
Today I'm trying to power through and finish this quilt top. It's king size. The sashing finishes 1"! The fabrics are all by Connecting Threads...I LOVE their stuff! The cotton lawn is from this line, and the sashing is white from their line of fabulous solids. The tutorial for the pattern is here. I'm looking forward to stippling this one up so I can use it on my bed before summer is through. That's my goal!
Earlier this week I was also being responsible by doing some landscaping. I'm not into yard work at all (I'd much rather quilt) so my front yard was looking very sad and pathetic. Thankfully, I had a few of my neighbor friends (that actually enjoy that sort of thing) pitch in and help out.
My kids were part of the work crew, too. We made some significant improvements in just one day! We even had fun in the process. Who knew?
(don't ask me why my son is laying on the sidewalk....)
What a significant improvement! It feels so good to have this done!
