This past week has been filled with awesomeness that I have not even had a chance to stop and share!
One of my dearest friends had a wedding last weekend ( YAY!). Katy and I drove up to Ohio on Friday for the wedding on Saturday and drove home Sunday! Craziness!
There were many Barn Quilts on the way there and back. I was only able to get shots of a couple since we did not have much time to lollygag along the way.
This one is really pretty!
Both of these were found in Ohio. I need to add making a barn quilt for my house to my list of things to do!
While we were in Ohio, we visited Jesy Anderson in her shop Sew Dayton. We were there for the last Sip N Sew since the shop will be closing soon. Jesy and her partner Tracy will be both opening shops again soon so Dayton will have DOUBLE the sewing fun!
Be sure to visit their shop for some amazing closing deals!
Jesy's new shop is Needle Ink and Thread and will be sewing classes! I am hoping to be able to snag some teaching gigs! So keep your eyes peeled for me returning to Ohio soon! If you have not had the great pleasure to meet Jesy, you will LOVE HER! She is fun and funny! There may have been some singing and theatrics going on while I was there. You never know with me. The first time Jesy and I met, I was wearing a HOT PINK crinoline on my head.
Life is too short...I like to enjoy my every moment!
Art Gallery Fabrics designer Sharon Holland was too sweet and also drove into Dayton to see the shop and me ( BIG HEARTS)! I was able to feel Art Gallery knits for the first time and, I have to say, they are FABULOUS! I am looking forward to taking the big plunge into some garment sewing with Art Gallery knits!
I am keeping my fingers crossed that Sharon will be teaching at Jesy's shop too! She is brilliant and I know I could learn so much from her!
I did not get a photo with Sharon so I snagged a photo of her beautiful fabrics from her site ;o) The dandelions in a knit...Oh MY!
And in the past week I have sewn very little. Driving, visiting, wedding, the teenager had a birthday so we also went shopping and when we returned home, both the 25 year old and the nine year old are ill and the icing on the cake...my mother in law is coming for a week...arriving today!
It all happens at once...always!
I do not let life get in my way so I did take the time to figure out how to sew a log cabin circle. This has been on my dream list forever!
The fabrics are thrifted shirts from the Goodwill and I pieced this block with Aurifil 50wt thread.
Last week, prior to leaving, I also made these adorable Economy Blocks!
This was my crazy week, how about you? How do you manage your many schedules when you have a avalanche of activity take over?
