Glam Clam Workshop Prep
|Playing with Parts on the Design Wall|
The Glam Clam has been on my bucket list ever since I started drooling over the ones I've seen on flickr and posted on blogs. I'm thrilled that our MQG has invited Latifa Saafir for a workshop in a few weeks. They've booked the workspace long into the night as well so I want to come prepared and make the most of 12 hours of pure indulgence.
|Focused Scrappy - Loving my boarded stash|
I'm GOING BIG, with not only the 12" block but with a King Size. It's all about scale and the fact that if I'm finally going to make one, I'd better get to sleep under it when I'm done!
My stash is - well, you know, basically bursting. The first inspiration fabric line that I thought of was Lucky Penny and any other Alison Glass I own (love her). Turns out the AMH Field Study I've been hoarding plays well as does Kaffe (the first designer I collected). Because this is the time to use my large scale floral, I tossed in some Amy Butler and miscellaneous Art Gallery.
One of the other things that I did regularly and has recently fallen to the waist side along with swapping has been linky parties. I miss them too! Here's my ALYOF September goal.

|finding "My People"|
Other than swapping at our MQG, I haven't done any in far too long. I started out slow but that's all changing with the joining of my first swap on IG. It's fun finding out who's in my group and discovering new people and rediscover some old friends. Hopefully I learned my lesson from flickr and the ridiculous juggling of over commitments when I started there and won't fall into the same.

Wine Gift Bag - a Finish
Trudging along with WIPS can get depressing even when you like the projects you're working on. This little bag was exactly the boost I needed. Starting something new doesn't sound like a fix for the blues but this quick finish felt great. Hubby and I went to a friend's birthday party last weekend. The woodgrain fabric lined with wine grapes from my stash was stop on.
