Not Much Sewing

I haven't done a whole lot of sewing these past weekends, instead we drove up to Taos and hung out. 




 
 
I did make a trip to our local library and ordered a few books from Amazon.  I feel like I am currently in a bit of an inspirational rut (hence, the traveling around New Mexico on the weekends.) 


Perhaps this week will be a bit better.

WIP - Attacking those WIPS

I feel like I am making some progress on these long overdue WIPs.

My neutral and blue quilt is in the process of being basted.  Here's a photo of the back.  Still debating on how I am going to quilt this one.


A long time ago,  I showed these fabrics from Art Gallery that I wanted to use for Rachel's Colorbrick quilt.


Here they are finally all cut up.  I am waiting on some fabric for the sashing to come (sheesh - I thought I had enough of what I wanted to use, but apparently I used it for some other projects.)

This quilt was to be for me.  Really excited about this one!


And just because I needed a quick project.  I made this pen/pencil holder from the book Zakka Style.  Pens and pencils are always ending up at the bottom of my bags, this at least helps me to find them a little faster.




What are you working on this week?

Linking up to Freshly Pieced.

February 2013 - Lovely Year of Finishes

I don't know where these days are going!  It's ridiculous!

For the February Lovely Year of Finishes challenge, I have decided to finish this quilt...


I originally posted about it here.  This is a quilt top my Mom made roughly 30+ years ago.  She gave it to me to quilt and bind, and since then it's been sitting in my WIP basket.  I have some blue calico fabric that might work for a backing.  It's my turn to add my touch of love to this little quilt!
