First of all, I just want to thank Lee for hosting WIP Wednesday each week and say that she has had a well-deserved break during the summer. After guest hosting last week, I realized what an amazing amount of time she puts into being the host here every week. I tried to comment on as many links as I could, and I saw some incredible work and gained much inspiration. Thank to everyone who linked up. I had a great time visiting so many wonderful artists.
Not much to report this week. We were at the coast for the weekend and I had intended to get a lot of sewing done. But got kind of distracted by the view.
I'm using "Indie" by Art Gallery Fabrics. It is just beautiful fabric and I'm hoping this quilt has kind of an Anthropologie feel for these very hip newlyweds.
And the mail brought surprises. When I sent some extra Denyse Schmidt fabric to Hadley, I wasn't expecting to get this in the mail! Isn't it awesome? She knows how much I love orange...
Petra. Well, actually she put out a call on Flickr for some Heather Bailey fabric and I happened to have a little of the whole line she was looking for. When she asked what I wanted to swap in return, I told her "nothing." I mean, I'm trying to lessen the amount of fabric I have, not add more to it! But when she said that didn't seem quite right, I said, "Okay, how about some of Amy Butler's first lines?"
I'm off to see what everyone has been working on in the past week.
