Sneak Peek

Hello there! Just wanted to pop in and say hi. We moved about three weeks ago and we're still getting settled into our new place, so I haven't had much time for sewing. Our new place is smaller and I no longer have a sewing room, so I'm trying to figure out how to find a little sewing space for myself without making a mess that takes over our living area. It turns out downsizing is hard work! That being said, we love living near DC again, as well as friends and family, so we're very happy to be here.

I think I promised you a post about the Dr. Seuss quilt my mom made Lauren for Christmas. I snapped some pictures in a hurry before we moved, but the lighting wasn't good and I need to take some new ones next time we have good weather. In the mean time, here's a sneak peek-

Taking quilt pictures with a three-year-old is always fun :-)

I'll try to take new pictures soon. My mom did such a great job on this quilt!

And here's a sneak peek of a quilt I've been working on since before Christmas.

The fabric is Monaco by Monaluna mixed with some Mendocino by Heather Ross and Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry.

I've been agonizing over what fabric to use to use for the binding, but I think I've finally settled on Kona Ash. Now to find the time to actually do it!

Happy sewing,

We interrupt this silence for a blog post!

Well hello there! I apologize for the long silence . . . it seems that my short Christmas break turned into quite a long break. I've been enjoying having Mr. PinSewPress home since he graduated and the time has just flown by!

After some nice downtime with the family, we're in the process of moving! Mr. PSP got a job in Virginia, so we're moving back to our home state after enjoying six years in Myrtle Beach. We're really looking forward to living in Virginia again, but all this packing sure is exhausting!

Today I started packing up my sewing room, and for the first time I sorted everything by color. It's fun for me to see everything laid out like this! It would look even better if I folded everything uniformly, but darn it, I'm just too lazy ;-) (Not to mention short on time!)

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and confirm that I am in fact alive and well. Thanks bloggy friends for checking in with me during my long silence - I didn't intend to go that long without posting! I'll try to come back soon with some good quilty pictures. My mom made Lauren an awesome Dr. Seuss quilt for Christmas, and I have a few quilts in progress myself.

Happy sewing!
