Catching Up

Oh my . . . summer has flown by and now here it is the middle of September. I'm still here. Still designing. Still sewing a little here and there. Looking forward to lots more sewing when the cooler weather settles in.

Last week it was time to get my act together and make a pin cushion for the Pin Cushion Party blog hop over at Crazy Mom Quilts. This is Amanda Jean's first fabric line and it's so so fun. You'll be seeing my post and pin cushion on Saturday so stay tuned. In the mean time, go check out some of the cute pin cushions everyone is making with her fabric line. The line is called Good Neighbors and is sold exclusively by Connecting Threads. Here's a little sneak peek of some of the fabrics.

This week it was on to getting my mini started for the Kaffe Mini Swap happening mostly on Facebook and Instagram. If you're a Kaffe lover then take a look at #kaffeminiswap on Intsagram for some inspiration. Lots of fun things going on there. Here's some of the Kaffe prints I'm using. The one in the lower right, called Ferns, is a new one in my stash. I'm just loving the purple and aquas together. Definitely need to get more of this one.

This is what I have going on so far. I may add a little more . . . or not. We'll see. You might recognize the block. It's the same one I'm using for my Christmas quilt. You can see more about that on my blog under the Drunkard's Path QAL tab.

My other major WIP of the month is my next color post. September is the month for Yellow so I'm seeing yellow everywhere. Each new month finds me searching my home and environment for the chosen color and as a result I have become even more aware of color. Try it. You really will see more.

If you haven't seen my other color posts go here. So far I've done Purple, Green, Red and Blue. You can also see my daughter's color posts here on her blog.  Her jewelry is all about color so she's having just as much fun as I am looking for color. See her jewelry at Emily Claire Studio.
