Not feeling it...

You know how sometimes you just. don't. feel. like doing anything? You've got that feeling like you should be doing something, but you just don't wanna?

Previously, when I got in that space, I used to make simple quilts like nine patches or railway ties, a lot of baby quilts got made in that space with incredibly detailed quilting - to get me back in the swing of things.

In case you haven't noticed...

I'm MIA. :)

I'll be back after this short vacation.  :)

Trying something new...

I haven't had access to my sewing room for the past week, so I thought I would try some hand work, using a piece of my hand-dyed cloth.

Because I didn't have a quilting or embroidery hoop (since I don't actually embroider!), I first sewed the cloth and batting down to a piece of stretched and framed canvas, and then began my hand stitching.

I kinda suck at it - so there's been a lot of re-do-ing.  *w*

But if it goes where I want it to, I'm gonna like it.

By the way...

ETA:  The contest is over now and I placed a much more satisfactory second place.  Thanks for your votes! :)

I forgot until just now, that I entered an online quilt contest at Quilting Gallery.  I entered my piece called  "By The Sea" in the 'beach and sea" category.

The last time I entered one of their contests, I placed dead last. Which was fairly embarassing if a good lesson for my ego. lol

Anyway - if you like the piece, and feel moved to vote for it after looking at all the others, please do so:

You have to scroll all the way to the bottom to vote for "By The Sea". 

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

This is one of the (many) projects I've had on the go recently, finished and ready to show you.

This quilt goes back to my "roots" so to speak - long time readers will recognize some recurring themes: circles and monochromatic and/or limited palettes).

Scamper says "Hi"

I have had a crazy amount of productivity lately - when I say "crazy" - I mean full on cray-cray people! 

In the past ten days I have made 11 (yes, that's ELEVEN dresses) for myself for work, and three "house" dresses (I come home from work, take off my dress, and put on a dress - true story. *hee*).
