Just a quickie…

Wanted to pop in and say, great things are in the works! I currently have the fastest pieced quilt EVER all over my kitchen table and living room floor. It’s a king sized stacked coin pattern in greens, blues and whites. I have no pics as it’s too late to take any good ones and it didn’t occur to me earlier, of course. But with the week off (yay, first time off since February, no wonder I haven’t been sewing!) I decided to redo my (our) bedroom. Of course we needed a new quilt, since I’ve never made anything for DH and I at all, all of my quilts have been baby or just because gifts. There’s enough scraps left over to do matching pillowcases and a wall hanging as well, since there’s a painting done right on our bedroom wall that the landlord doesn’t want painted over…I’m not a huge fan of Tinkerbell so it has to be covered. I’m really excited to see everything put together and to get some pictures. Tomorrow, I hope.
On a personal note, lately I’ve been able to see my good friends who live far away every weekend. It’s been so fun. I love company almost as much as I love sewing, which is saying a LOT.
On another note, my house is thrashed for the first time since we moved in and even though it’s driving me nuts, it also feels more like home than ever before. It’s not filthy by any means and the kitchen and bathrooms are spotless. Still, it’s pleasantly messy, which is a total switch for me. I am enjoying it. Without a cuddly baby rolling around and crawling all over everything, I find I don’t have to pick up quite as often, lol.
Anyway, it’s after midnight and I’m determined to make a little more progress on this quilt before I go to sleep, so I’m off for now. More details coming soon!
