A Little Housework
It was a relaxing, yet somewhat active, weekend, so there wasn't much sewing happening. I did get a little 'housework' done. You may recall my quilt den is located in the basement...so it was a wonderful place to be during this scorching heatwave we've been enduring!
This pattern just cements the fact that I detest paper piecing...but I paper pieced that dang flag. That fills my paper-piecing quota for the year. BLECK!
I've got the main house components put together. Next up...the log cabin foundation. Then it gets appliqued down.
I'm still playing with fabrics for other parts of the quilt, but "Climbing Up On Saffron Hill" is coming along!
In other news, I added to the yarn stash this week with these lovelies...
It was the least I could do. I had to sit thru a long and very boring insurance conference, so this is my reward! ;o) It's some yummy Skinny Bugga! from The Sanguine Gryphon! Gorgeous colors (these are Sea Star and Sitticus Jumping Spider)...scrumptious cashmere....yes...my reward! Already seeking out some great wrap/stole patterns to use these in!
I hope your weekend's been a relaxing one with working A/C, and little to no housework!
