I have been getting in some sewing while the getting is good. Carolyn was planning to finish and block the sweater today, so sometime in the next couple of days I will get the sweater and start embroidering the sleeves. Amy tried it on and definitely only wants the sleeves embroidered, which means I may actually be able to get it done in time for her to wear it to the wedding on Saturday.
This means that I spent yesterday evening cutting and putting together Block 2 of this year’s Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery BOM. This one was designed by the ladies from Sweetwater:
Today I decided that some paper piecing was in order since I couldn’t vacuum the sewing area while my husband napped. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) I started working on the Celebration Christmas Tree Skirt that I’m making for my oldest daughter. This is about where these units were when I started.
Here is how they (there are actually eight of them) look all completed:
My Block 3 (designed by Bonnie & Camille) arrived today, so if I don’t get the call from Carolyn early in the day tomorrow, I may try to get it put together and be ahead for the first time ever in a BOM!
What have you been up to?
