I stayed determined yesterday to make it back to the sewing room and hooray! It turned out to be a wonderful sewing day after all! With temperatures cold enough to produce snow flurries off and on, and some worn out kiddos from all the Easter celebrating, a relaxing day is just what we all needed.
First thing to check off my list, of course, my Bottled Rainbows Quilt top! It's all pieced and I'm so thrilled with it! I'm still figuring out my plan for the back, but I now think it's best to just keep it simple. Hopefully by early next week I will be completely finished with this one!!
Since my sewing room is such a small space and seams to be closing in on me a little more with each fabric purchase, it's tight quarters when there are five of us + a large quilt in there. The kids were more than happy to play a computer game while I sewed those long panels together.
My daughter even began work on a new quilt design for me, putting all those Easter basket art supplies to great use -- I think she has something here!?
The only one of the five of us who wasn't completely enjoying themselves was Lily. Just look at that face! I relocated her fabric bed to a spot other than my main work surface and now she's mad.
Next, I moved on to my etsy orders. Done!
I received some Fabric Envy mail! I won an amazing giveaway on the Fabric Envy blog recently, and now I'm blessed to welcome this fabulous shop as an MCH Sponsor. Aren't they pretty?
I planned out my next Design Team project for Riley Blake Designs. I get to use their Chevrons to create a new tutorial and then give a bundle of them away right here!! I can't wait! You can find these in the shops of most of my sponsors, but you better hurry, they are going fast!!
Finally, late last night I found a little alone time, and decided to begin a new Sketch Stitch - thread drawing project. This one's going to be a mini quilt for my girl. I'm always dreaming up new project ideas and am slowly working out my plan for these Sketch Stitch projects of mine. More on that soon!
Have a beautiful day, friends!!
