What a crazy busy three months! Between traveling, schoolwork, and some personal stuff, it’s been near impossible to keep up with blog reading, let alone writing. But things are settling down some and I can fill you in on the few projects I’ve managed in that time.
So, when we left off, I was on the first step of testing my black and lime green theory. The next step brought some changes to the dress pattern and then the fabric rainbow caught my eye and more dresses were born.
I’ll go into the details in the next post but I think my black and lime green theory might be morphing into a black and bright color theory. We’ll see how it shakes out.
It’s always fun to travel with my in-laws because my mother-in-law quilts and knits so we visit any yarn and fabric stores in the vicinity. In Panama City, we visited Quilting by the Bay – totally fabulous. I was ready to move in 🙂 Anyway, in that store I finally found the perfect fabrics and pattern for a quilt for my husband. I’ve been promising him a quilt for several years now but we’ve never found the right fabrics. Well, the stars must have been aligned just so that day because the store sample was close to perfection. Of course, I couldn’t resist adding my own touch (of green, hehe). Here’s the top before adding the border:
It is now layered and ready for quilting. I can hardly wait to get it all finished. I might be farther along on that if it weren’t for a sudden urge to knit that gripped me last Sunday. So instead of quilting I’ve been knitting. I’ll show you when it’s finished.
See you soon!
