My new job started this week, which dramatically cut back on the amount of sewing time. But well worth it for the upcoming paycheck! It has been almost two years since I had a full time job, other than a couple of months subbing last spring, so getting up in the morning is taking some real adjustment.
But there has been some progress on the Night Sky quilt background.
I put in a secret star to amuse myself, and also had a lot of fun with the wonky flying geese row.
And I dug through my stash and made a trip to the fabric store and have collected a lot of greens for the upcoming hills and forest parts.
Actually, I’ve added a lot to the stash in the last few days. Yesterday my sister and I went to the bulk fabric sale at Scrap. I ended up with several grab bags of fabric, plus a big bag of upholstery fabric samples that are going to get added on to a long-in-progress patchwork project I’ve been working on.
The upholstery scraps dredged from the store’s giant bins:
Above are two of the three grab bags. Not everything will be loved, but I got a lot of great pieces to add to my scrap bin, some larger yardage to work with, and a bunch of great black and whites to add to my mini projects for the bedroom wall collection.
And now back to making a little more progress on getting that sky finished.
