I can feel it, I can taste it

Yes, I'm almost there, folks! The last few blocks and the sashing left to do on the humungous quilt top....then I can go back to having a tidy sunroom, while it gets machine-quilted. I couldn't really attempt to do that job myself, not if I want to use the quilt this winter.

This will give me room to finally start all those other projects I've been putting off. Also, I already have this baby smock-to-be waiting in the wings.


I spotted the cute bias trim at Material Obsession today, while I was shopping for the sashing fabric. What can I say? It was begging to go home with me. I justified the purchase in my mind, thinking that I'll be using it right away for a version of this smock (from this book) for the bub. The things we do!


Time for some crafting frenzy over here, as I'm seriously eager to see the almost-end of the quilt. There's still the binding to do....gah!

I'm going to take a week's blog break......to focus and get into the zone. I'll see you all next week! I promise to show the crafty results!

"then I can go back to having a tidy sunroom"...
yeah sure. Because you're not going to ever do any crafting again...

Hello!! I hope the enormous quilt gets finished soon! I love your binding! I have some of the stripey stuff in my stash - I bought it in a fabric store in Copenhagen! Enjoy the break and looking forward to seeing the quilt when it's finished!

Cant wait to see the end result! Good luck getting it all finished.

You've gone crazy with crafting. you are mile away from a ambitous coporate career woman that you once were... and little baby girl changed all that...
