Messy Monday Morning

>> Monday, November 16, 2009

Here's my design wall this morning.
Not too much has changed. There is one new Lady of the Lake block. The letters 'Peace' and 'Love' need blanket stitched, and yo yos added to the "O"s. The tree block is awaiting decisions, the stocking is the backing for when I finish blanket stitching by hand the front gingerbread, and the reindeer may get put away as I'm running out of time for that one! My branch continues to provide inspiration.

What have I been working on?

This is Sunday afternoon:

This is Sunday evening:
I've joined the Secret Elf exchange on Pat Sloan's Death by Quilting. I decided to make this project for my partner:
It's the project from Pat Sloan in the latest Irish Quilting magazine. All the fabrics have been dug out of my stash. You can see my background is darker and I've made some changes in colour values - most notably a white pumpkin instead of orange. The background reads pinky orange and my orange fabrics were just sinking into it. (The pumpkin is also flipped over as I felt my fabric choice made it look 'dirty'. The back is a bit better. I may redo it so it's the right way around.)

I also tried to incorporate some of my partner's favourite colours. I still have some more berries to add. And I'm waiting for some rick rack to arrive which I hope will match:)
This week's early plan is to get this made.

The rest of the week is looking at this pile:

All the new projects I have been working on are at the quilting stage. Some tops in that pile have been there since February! I'm hoping they make it outta there!!:)

This is what the end of my cutting table looks like after all the hunting and gathering yesterday. It will need cleaned up, but not right away. At least with it this messy, I'll be more likely to move to the sewing machine and get something finished!:)

Check out the other design wall participants through the link at Judy's blog. Here's to a week of finishes!

With Joy,

It was fun to see your photos of inspiration, fabric choices, and block progress!

I'm really glad my cutting table isn't the only one that looks that way! You just made me feel a whole lot better!
