This past week has been completely free of projects that require meeting instruction deadlines. I did take some time to completely clean my sewing room, things had gotten really pretty bad in there. Unfortunately in doing so I discovered a project that some time ago I stashed away under the cutting table that caught my attention.A whole box of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and it did look like a few other similar prints. The pattern was tucked in there as well, and even some already prepared appliqué pieces for the long panel on the left side. However, once I started digging around in the box I realized that somewhere along the line I had pulled out a good deal of Fassett fabrics and used them in other projects. The only cure for this kind of problem is a trip to the local quilt store.I happen to be very lucky, as my local quilt store had two full shelving units of Fassett fabric. A 1/3 yard of each got me out of there without too much damage.Lucky me I had included the background in the box. I 'm not sure if it will be enough for the entire quilt, but Grunge fabric is another item that the shop carries in abundance. Plus this pattern would lend itself to mixing backgrounds. The only other project I did try to get caught up with was blocks 7 and 8 of my Camden Station. Plus I have the appliqué fusible pieces cut for the 9th block ready to apply to the fabrics. However, that will be set aside for a while. Tomorrow my Garden Party BOM instructions go online so it is back to the grindstone with that project.
The only cuteness this week so far from our oldest daughter, new parents of a puppy, so we get lots of pictures. Loki now 15 weeks old and a good 50 pounds plus is getting along really well with his sister Liza. They have decided that the king size bed is just the place to spend nap time. Seems that they also believe that the bed is much more comfortable and things are looking like it could get really crowded once daughter and husband also want to sleep there. Liza currently weighs in at about 120 pounds, but Loki is expected top out at a good 200. Hmmm, wonder who gets to win this bedtime battle.
