I didn't mean to take last week as a vacation but Laura is here and I had to entertain her and since she wanted to sew....well, I had to be a good hostess and sew all week too.
I finished all of my Christmas postcards! All 80 of them! I'll share them over the next 3 days and now I just have to get them addressed.
Laura made great progress on her first quilt. Here are a few blocks on the design wall. She'll have all the blocks done today so she can start putting the quilt together when she goes back to Bermuda. I wasn't all that sold on her light palette but now I get it. I think it's going to look very elegant. In real live the colors are more cream than gray and it will be beautiful quilted with an overall swirly floral/vine motif.
After I finished all of my cards I got back to piecing Drunkard's Path blocks and I have almost half of them sewn together! How's that for productivity?
Laura has also been spending some time with another friend learning how to make stained glass. We went to the glass shop Saturday and I bought more glass that I don't need. I'll be getting back to my glass studio soon to start fusing again. I'll also get back to the longarm this week too.
Of course you can't have a carefree week of sewing without some punishment and that is a lovely case of tendinitis in my neck. It seems that I always have it somewhere in my body. I'll try to do ice pack and avoid sewing for a few days to see if I can get that calmed down.
Oh, there's also decorating for Christmas to do. I guess I better get off the computer and on to other things! Check out what everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.
