Things Accomplished

Wow, it's great to be back in the quilting groove again! I really had no idea how much I missed it until at 6:30 this morning. I was setting at my table sewing and wondering what had ever taken me away from doing something I so much love to do? I still have no answer really, other than to say life! It sure does feel good though to getting projects completed again. Even at 6:30 am. Not being an early morning person, im usually not up for sewing at that time of day unless i have already been up all tonight, thus far. With the house being nice and quiet, kids tucked in their beds, hubby off and was heaven on earth this morning. I just may have to make an attempt to get up early more often to sew.

The first project that I finished yesterday was the "completed" Dresden tabletopper. I really do not know if it's finished or not. I like it, but yet feel it still needs some quilting or something. It is intended for my husbands aunt. The question is, of course I like it so well, will I be able to part with it?

Again, the picture does these fabrics no justice at all. Have I mentioned that i am in desperate need of a new camera and also learn how to take good pictures that are nice and straight? It will come with experience right? I believe these fabrics are Aster Manor by 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics. They were the first fat quarter bundle that i've purchased. I cant wait to visit my LQS in the near future to get other fat quarter bundles.

The project that im currently working on is this Sandy Gervais design. Sandy did an awesome job at coming up with this mini quilt for the Fall Blog Hop. I'm not sure that the one im working on will be nearly as cute as Sandy's as I didnt have enough ecru/cream/white scraps to do the patchwork like Sandy did on hers.

You can find this sweet little Pumpkin Spice design by visiting Sandys blog called Pieces From My Heart.

So, that is what I have been up to. I am creating again and life is good! Be back in the next day or 2 to show the finished Pumpkin Spice mini quilt.
