April 2, 2010

Well, it’s been a little while since I’ve posted, I guess.  I’d love to tell you that I ran away to Charleston and never came back.  Sadly, though, that is not the case.  We had a lovely trip, too short though–as vacations always seem to be.   

It’s been quiet at home.  Just settling back into the routine.  Why is it that a short vacation seems to throw everything off?  House cleaning, grocery shopping, laundry.  Or maybe I’m just blaming my laziness on vacation? 

Little sewing has taken place.  I did finish the Drunk Love inspired block for Sharon for the bee.  It’s late, very late.  But will be in the mail shortly. 

I’m still working on the March block.  I had my idea, but then couldn’t make the math work out.  Adrienne, if you’re reading, I apologize for the lateness, and will get my butt in gear posthaste. 

I have another quilt almost finished.  We’re in the hand binding stage, and now that Murphy is a little less of a pain (in some ways!) I can manage to do it during TV time and not feel guilty about keeping the dog locked up.  In related news, it seems sewing might pick up a little now because Murphy seems to be doing ok with having unsupervised time out of the crate.  I wouldn’t leave him home alone, but Jack and I can easily be doing our own things and not have to worry about Murph every single minute. 

I was inpsired by this the other day, and I had a stack of fabrics, and coincidentally a matching solid, so I starting hacking away last night.  I don’t know why I started another project when I have so many other to finish, but the design is pretty simple so hopefully this will be a quick top to get out of the way. 

This weekend is promising to be beautiful here, so perhaps I’ll get a few pictures taken to show you. 

One other thing.  Every since Anna Maria Horner’s Little Folks Voile came onto the scene I’ve been salivating over this fabric.  Not only that, but everything I’ve read tells me that this fabric is amazing.  Now, I’ve been pretty good, and haven’t really bought any fabric in a long time (except for a few necessary–I swear!–items).  I’m really wanting to snag some, but feel guilty buying fabric right now when I don’t NEED it, you know?  And this stuff, while I’m sure it’s worth the price, is more costly than your average quilting cotton.  The question is, what do I do?  Any guidance would be appreciated!
