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 SBAMQG 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. Linking up to Sunday Stash with Molli Sparkles who's having a blogiversary, congrats!
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. 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. I'm capitolaquilter on IG as well so come say hi.

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.
