WIP Wednesday: Pre-Vacay

IMG_1350-1

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
So I’ve got a little vacation coming up, which of course means three times as much work while I get ready for the vacation. That’s always the way, right?

But when I’m not hard at work on my preparations to relax, here’s what I’ve been doing …

… some straight-line quilting (can’t show you more than this, sorry)

… using Monica Solorio-Snow‘s Sew Yummy fabric line for Cloud 9 in a fun little block (more on that in a bit)

… cutting into this lovely stack of Emmy Grace by Bari J for Art Gallery Fabrics

… and admiring my Aviatrix Medallion in Cotton + Steel (though not necessarily making any progress on it).

And speaking of vacation, WIP Wednesday is going on one too, while I’m gone! There will be NO WIP Wednesday the last two weeks of July. But feel free to carry on, on Instagram—you guys don’t really need me over there, do you? : ) WIP Wednesday will officially be back on August 6 with guest host Cori of Let’s Eat Grandpa, and then I’ll be back in the saddle on August 13. (And don’t worry, I’m leaving you with some other pre-written, pre-scheduled blog posts while I’m gone!)

    Looks to me like you've been really busy with your sewing!
    I've linked up my blog post. I sure will miss linking up the next 2 weeks.

    I've liked the Shabby Fabrics facebook page.

    I saw a funny article from the Onion this week about beach vacations. Mom does just as much cooking and cleaning and laundry as she does at home, but she has a view of the ocean! I hope your vacation includes some time to relax!

    I signed up to follow them on Facebook. I am new to this generation of social media and Facebook is the only thing I have started to use. Thanks for all the inspiration.
