OK, so last week I was patting myself on the back for not having a single item in the NEW Projects category of my WIP tally - this week it's got the largest number!
Lee at Freshly Pieced is back -yeah- and has set up an amazing schedule of WIP
Guest Bloggers for the linky starting October with my friend Debbie at A Quilters Table.
I'm thrilled at the prospect of meeting them both in person at Sewing Summit very soon.
Move aside old projects, a new one's caught my eye. Don't you love it when a quilt takes on a life of it's own? The morphing or unforeseen spin offs that occurs for me during the creative process is one of the my favorite elements of quilting.
|Luminaria 48x60 center|
I showed you some prep and progress pictures from the workshop
with Christine Barnes. This one I will call mid-way because the variation of a border that I'm tossing around to give it my own take is going to take about as much time as the center has.

Who knows, I may just audition one fabric to go around it like the pattern and call it a day. But, for now I'm so inspired and want to run with the idea that's lurking - despite the other projects that I should be working on instead.
|clutch for sewing tools|
As I envision packing for Sewing Summit, I realize I really want to whip up a few more items for putting my stuff in. This little clutch I made with a friend during a sew day and I had thought it would be a stash gift - well, I'm gifting it to myself to put my sewing tools in! Now I need a needle book and maybe a larger project bag to go along. In a just a month I'll be in SLC - So Excited!
