..........often go awry. Yep, that's the way the last couple of weeks have been for me. First, it was the sudden attention our cats wanted during our travels along with bad weather. So, not a whole lot of sewing going on during that time.
On The Cutting Board
I'm happy to say that I am back among the living and getting a few things done. I have twelve Happy Camper tops embroidered and ready to sew together.
And of course, four of the all-time favorite color combo of red with aqua or teal Happy Campers. I have more to work on and hopefully, they will all be finished before June which is not too far off.
Oh, and here's a photo of a T@B trailer. It was parked next to us for one of the nights while we were in Montana. Isn't it adorable? You can see where my inspiration comes from for my Happy Campers.
As soon as I started to feel better, I started working on some projects for myself. I have been wanting to finish my SW pillows since last winter. Ta-Da! All four are now done! If you like the Native Flair pattern, you can order the epattern from QuiltWoman. I'm tempted to make a lap quilt to match the pillows. After, I finish a few other UFOs.
This time, I made the new one a little wider with deeper pockets. Now Dusty will not be able to chew on my pens and pencils sitting in the top pocket. To make the pockets stronger, I used one long tube of folded fabric and sewed down sections instead of separate squares of fabric. I'm quite happy with the way this one came out considering I only spent a couple of days working on it. I just wish I had used a heavier interfacing for the back. I'll have to remember that for the next time.
Tomorrow is a travel day. We plan to stay a few weeks in mid-Washington at Crescent Bar before we start our move towards the west coast.
