It's been a busy little bit....as busy as one can be when not working that is. We had family pics on Sunday. Bubbs was a total ham so I cannot wait to get edits back from the photographer. The tie onesie was a success on him, if I do say so myself. He even managed to hold back all of the spits until we were done, it just doesn't get better than that.
I started my log cabin sewing class. I might have a bit of a quilting crush on the instructor. She is amazing and I learned so much in the first 3 hours. I am so excited for the rest of the classes and the deliciousness that this quilt will be when I am done. Between now and and finished there is just a whole lot more cutting and sewing to occur.
This is just a little preview of the different pieces chopped up so far.
I also decided to try to fix the wonkiness of my first City Sampler block. These pieces are just so tiny. SO TINY! I'm pretty sure that I am going to need to embrace a little bit of wonky. I know that this quilt is going to be finding it's home with us and I think that my husband will just have to love the "character" that is displayed. So even though it is still a bit off, it is so much better. I credit all of the amazing tips that I learned in the first session of the log cabin class.
On top of the quilting, I have been playing around with the Etsy shop and trying to learn a bit about how artists are successful using that format. It is interesting and for some very intense. I have listed a few new things so feel free to check them out at the shop. I especially like this pillow. I am a sucker for all things safari themed.
I am thinking that in the next week or so I will be putting some finishing touches on some new collages. Who loves turtles?
