My Relaxing Weekend

Posted on January 13th, by Amy in work in progress. 10 comments

I turned in my book on Friday, feeling happy and excited about all the work. Yay! After spending most of the last month at home, working,  I requested dinner and a movie out with the family, so we headed out to see Frozen and had a nice dinner in Park City, together. We had a really fun night out, and the kids all enjoyed the movie.

A couple of weeks ago, I had gone through my stash, and pulled a lot of fabrics to sort into color groups, so I decided to tackle that much later in the evening.  While I found it very relaxing, my husband looked at me incredulously, asking, “What, did you forget how to relax?”  There might be a tiny bit of truth in his question, but I had fun anyway, and the piles are so pretty when sorted out!  My blue stack is much larger than the rest…

Last night I decided to get a little serious and work on my #APQQuiltalong quilt, which has been waiting in the corner for me. I’m happy to report that I cut and sorted all the pieces for my blocks!

#apqquiltalong -

I organized all my pieces and look forward to a major piecing session tomorrow while the house is empty. It been a while since I’ve done any piecing, and I do love it!

What are you up to this week?

More soon,

  1. going to town today(3hr one way!) to stock up on white and bleached muslin (online shopping is a lifesaver!)…been holding me back on a couple different projects…especially excited about the one using muslin…it’s been on my list for a while, AND it’s my own idea :) Enjoy your piecing! I’ll be in the truck :)

  2. Your piles look lovely. I sat on the floor and went through scrap baskets looking for fabrics for economy blocks. I found it very relaxing. I was happy happy
    Looking at each piece : )

  3. Congrats on getting the book to the publishers, awesome! I have all the blocks for Whispering Lace completed. Next up, layout, assembly and then on Sir Owen the Innova for quilting.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  4. I am participating in Project Quilting with Persimon Dreams blog and had to sort out some strips from my scraps last weekend and found I had ALOT more blue than any other color as well !

  5. Nice piles of organized fabrics and of your new blocks! I must organize my sewing space again before I can get back to work as I just returned from vending at a show. That’s what I will be up to! It’s nice to get organized isn’t it!
