I have stumbled into my first real difficulty as a blogger. In the winter time, I am getting A TON of sewing and quilting done, but there is not enough daylight to get things photographed properly. How do you all deal with this? I work full time, and it is dark when I get to work, and when I leave work. That leaves the weekends, but often I forget the camera, or I am too busy to schedule photo time. Maybe I just need to make it a bigger priority.
Anyway, I am very nearly done with my mom's quilt and shams that I have been working on forever! It will be nice to get these to her before Christmas, and since I will headed to Lansing soon I am hoping to get them on her bed without her noticing. This will be a huge weight off my shoulders, and one more quilt finished on my intimidating WIP list!
I also started cutting fabric for another project that should move rather quickly. It is nice to see fabric get used, and move out of the stash.
That being said, I DID buy a little bit of fabric this week. Field's Fabrics has a great sale section with a lot of high quality designer prints for $5.97 a yard! This week they had some Habitat by Jay McCarrol on sale, and at that price I couldn't leave it behind. These are the prints I picked up!
If you don't know Jay McCarrol, he won the first season of "Project Runway". According to his bio, he started quilting at a young age, well before he did any garment sewing. Kinda like me! I love this line of fabric, and I was super excited to find some. I may go back next week and see if I missed any more of his prints. Otherwise I'm sure these will get worked into a quilt in the near future.
This weekend is Quilt Camp here in Michigan, and I am SO JEALOUS of everyone that gets to go! I wish I could've made it, but it didn't work into the schedule this year. Have fun everyone!
