. . . my stash stayed the same and my busy-ness was worse!
Well, my stash did stay the same. Nothing in and nothing out. Fine. And my week was very busy. Our ministry held its annual board meeting on Friday, so the days I wasn't working, I was busy helping Todd get ready for that. Except for Thursday night . . . Thursday night was guild, blessed guild night!
Our speaker was fiber artist, Molly Elkind.
Her work was incredible! I loved her cardinal piece . . .
Plus she did a lot of work in cotton paper that was very fascinating.
She's moved all over the place in her mediums, from fabric, paper, and now weaving. She shared about a new type of organic cotton being grown that actually grows in colors -- green and brown. These are two pieces she wove using it . . .
Interestingly enough, when it's washed, it gets darker and darker, instead of fading. How cool is that?! Needless to say I enjoyed her lecture and trunk show very much!
However, because of all the comings and goings, I still haven't spent a lot of time in the Nook. I got in there long enough to put bed risers under my cutting table legs:
Tah dah! Now, if I can just make it to Tuesday . . . I'll be able to spend a whole DAY in the Nook! Yay!!
In the meantime, I'm still working on this POTC block, stitching when I can . . .
Which will probably be in the car, to and fro tomorrow! I've only got two more units to attach to the block. And yes, that's tape on the units . . . I do that to make sure the units go together the way I want them to, which is especially important if you've been fussy cutting.
But on Tuesday . . . it's all pineapple quilt. Finally!
Like how I put it on hangers and hung the strips? Makes for a gorgeous backdrop (if I do say so myself)!
Linking up in a couple of places. First, HeLP for Hexie-aholics, over at sarah did it! It's her birthday weekend (Saturday, January 17) so go over and give her some birthday love! Also linking up to Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts!
