A Busy Week

Worked on a sample for TOWQS.
Light Show by Plays with Wool.
Hubbie made the frame for me.

But I had the most fun piecing this small quilt from Edyta Sitar's book,
Little Handful of Scraps.
I have not finished piecing one side because I will demo my tip for half seams when I teach my class next month. 

I designed the Wooly Block Adventure block for the shop.  
Worked on Dear Spooks by 1894 Cottonwood House.
And started on this beauty by Kerry Green, Solstice Dreams.
My progress on the first block. 
And then there was the Pumpkin Patch, Arizona style with my grands.

Hopefully, I will be as happy and productive next week too!

Surprise! A Post

Finished this darling table runner this week.
It will be a gift for my grandson who loves all things Halloween.
His favorite song to sing is 'This is Halloween' from Tim Burton's movie The Nightmare before Christmas. It is so cute to hear him sing it with his 3 year old voice and pronunciations.

Also finished this small quilt from Edyta Sitar's Book, Little Handful of Scraps.
So much fun to put scraps of favorite fabrics together! I love the secondary chevron pattern created by off-setting the hourglass units.

Perfecting my wool dyeing skills.
Part of this weekends pots.
Off to fire up the pots right now and work on another little quilt.
I do love my small scale piecing projects!

Next week I am off to San Diego for a family vacation....both my children and both sets of grands. Jaxson and I will celebrate our birthdays together at Sea World. Perfect celebration for a 3 year old and a 64 year old....will make me feel young again.
