In City Retreat

Last weekend my guild had a in city retreat and I was able to make it for some of Saturday afternoon and evening.

I started work on my Jelly roll quilt as I needed to lay it out and here there was lot of space. I sew all the row together and half of the center of the tops. Then I felt the need to move onto something else.
I pulled out my nearly insane and played with the fabric, I need to do more planning on this before I'm ready to work on it at retreat. So I started sewing the jungle fever kit with a smoky black I found in the one bin I can get to from my stash. I think this will look great. Sorry no photo as my battery on my camera had dies by this point in the day.

Not sure if I will get to pull out any sewing this weekend, hair cuts in the morning then of to a 1st birthday party. But I'm very exited as they are meant to be coming to fit my sewing room this week. yeah. :-)

Change of plans

A few years ago during retreat I picked up a jungle fever kit at one of the near by stores, I just loved the fabrics. Since then I have see a few of the kits made up and I did not love the quilt. So my kit sat and sat.

Last week I was looking at blog and saw a pattern I would like to make, my jungle fever fabric would be perfect - the kit is no more. I took the fabrics and cut them up into rectangles and squares, now I just need to find a nurture to go with them.

I had managed a little sewing over the last couple of weeks. My guild had a sew day on the Monday of the long weekend and I was able to go for a couple of hours, during which I got the last eight blocks done for the jelly roll quilt. Then on Friday night I went over to a friend for a quilting evening and finished the setting triangles. After which I just visited and played with fabric.

Sorry no photos, the guild is having another sew day next weekend so hoping to get it laid out and photo then. But can't have a post without photo, so here is Max cuddling with LM's Elmo.
