Design Wall Monday - 02/28/11

Well life has been very busy lately.  I do accounting work for a living and this time of year is a bear!  Aside from that, Lance and I have been trading colds, and also he was in an accident recently.  Nothing major, but he's pretty banged up.  I've been really unmotivated to sew or do anything else for a while. The quilting class that I teach keeps me moving along somewhat, but I had found myself stalled.  Fortunately, a quilt show in San Francisco over the weekend and trolling the internet for quilty inspiration may just have brought me out of it!  I took lots of pictures that hopefully I'll be able to post as a slideshow soon.  Above is my design wall ironing board for today.  Lots and lots of strips from my blue stash.  I'll mix these with tan for a masculine look.  Some of those are wrong side up, so they look lighter than they really are.  After I finish this one, I have another quilt lined up to make with stash that I am really excited about.  Can't wait to start on it - but only after this top is done!

Happy Valentine's Day 2011

Happy Valentine's Day!  Tonight I'll be in class.  Lance and I will go out next weekend for a nice dinner.  We've been trading off colds - not fun. Nothing much new with me on the sewing front. I plan to do a lot of cutting tonight and make myself a "kit". Then I can just sew, sew like the wind! (obscure movie reference!)  As far as stash busting goes, nothing in and nothing out for a couple of weeks now.  Hopefully I'll have some busted soon!
