Serious Studio Time

Today I devoted myself to working in my studio. I have several swap projects with deadlines looming and I needed to get moving on them. This morning I wrapped 44 fat quarters for a birthday swap with one of my on-line groups. Then I was off to my studio for the afternoon.

First up is Project A for my Secret Santa Christmas Swap partner. Aren't the colors wonderful? I've had these charms in my stash for a couple of years. I'm so glad the right project finally came along for them.
Project B was a truly impulsive project. I was digging through my cupboard trying to find my muslin when I pulled this pile of four inch squares from a Challenge I gave myself earlier this summer. They spoke so strongly to me I had to work on them. This is where I am at on the project. Five long strips of the blocks have been sewn. Now I need to finish the project.
Projects C, D and E are all made for a friend. Not all of the projects are done, but soon they will be done and out the door.
I still have three more swap projects to work on and get out on the mail before December 6. Then I can concentrate on DIL's new clothes.

I have been keeping up on the reading of blogs, but not keeping up on commenting. Everyone is working on such wonderful projects. I have more than 100 blog posts marked on my Bloglines to leave comments. Someday soon I'll get a chance to get caught up on the comments. So, if I usually comment on your blog and haven't for some time, don't worry. I'm still reading and I'm still inspired by all the wonderful projects out there in Blogland.

The colors in the 2nd quilt are just gorgeous!!! Love them!
Once, when we were on vacation, I was offline for about a week. I had TONS of blogs to catch up on. I debated for a bit and then hit the all read button on bloglines. It was just to overwhelming to read them all so I started off fresh.
Thanks for the good wishes for my kiddos to get well...and stay at school for a while day. :) I am crossing my fingers that tomorrow is the day!
Have a great week,

I am still trying to catch up too and just don't have time to comment on all the blogs I have been reading......Maybe I should do what Dawn did and mark all read and start again......

I actually loaded a quilt on the frame in the garage ready to quilt tomorrow after i get the borders on diamond strings. So i can load that one next.

Well I can't show a pix of my SSCS because I have changed my mind again and am starting fresh. New pattern new colours. Gotta love those colours Paula.

Always busy creating new quilts and projects, they are beautiful. It is easy to get behind on blogs, but we all know how it goes. Enjoy and do not feel pressured, we are all friends and understand. Have a great day!
