It is really amazing how fast time can slip away from you. Here it is two weeks since I checked in. I have been busy and the weekends just fly away.
If you remember the red and white CQ I worked on last year - I have finally put it together after stewing over it for a long time, trying to decide if it's done, and I would love your opinion on what border to use, the lighter red silk dupioni or the darker fabric (can't think of the name of this fabric). I won't tell you what I'm leaning toward.
I also did a little fun sewing on these pillow tops made from selvages. I didn't invent this but it is a lot of fun if you're just in the mood to sew with the goal of getting something done quickly. I made a small pillow out of one block and put four smaller blocks together for a larger pillow. I think my daughters will get a kick out of them.
Speaking of daughters, my younger one moves out next week into her own home. I'm very proud of her for taking such a big step but I have mixed feelings at the same time, the same ones I'm sure every parent has when a child leaves home. I'll miss her but I'm happy for her. And again - where did the years go? Seems like I just blinked and she was grown.
I took a week off starting Monday, and I hope I can sew until I drop. Sometime next month my older daughter and I want to take a road trip to Nashville where a friend says there's a terrific fabric store.
Have a terrific week, everyone.
