Jennifer Paganelli sent me her new Circa line for a commission quilt. I'm going to add a little Kona Curry and Kona Cerise.
Also, my happy news from this weekend is that I now have a design wall! You have no idea how thrilled I am to finally have a design wall - a floor to ceiling design wall! I am hoping that the design wall will help me work through my unfinsished projects and keep the new ones moving along.
This is the next long standing work in progress that I want to finish. B's aunt made these applique and embroidery blocks while her husband was overseas during World War II. I sashed them together ten to fifteen years ago but they've been sitting in a pile since then. There was some yellow fabric with the blocks that I was originally going to use for the backing but I am afraid that it might be too fragile. I have orderd some Kona curry for the back. I plan to hand quilt it.
I also have some basket blocks that B's aunt made. When she gave me the blocks so many years ago, I didn't know it would take me this long to finish the quilts.
We still have a bit of rearranging and organizing to do in the sewing/craft room but I am making progress!
Miss P is working on a "habitat diorama" for her research project on penguins. I'll try to share a photo of that when she's finished. She's made some pretty cute paper penguins.
