I haven’t been blogging very actively lately but it isn’t because I haven’t been sewing. It’s just one of those times when I can’t share what I am working on. I will show a few sneak peeks though! The above is a stack of paper pieced blocks for an upcoming pattern. I chose a soft, pastel palette for this one! It’s quite time intensive and precise.
Meanwhile, I am working on a second pattern. In stark contrast, this one is an easy sew, jelly roll pattern.
I’m using Persimmon by BasicGrey. They are both coming together nicely and I look forward to sharing them!
I’ve also been keeping busy in the yard. Our berry patch is doing nicely this year! I think that this is year three and it seems pretty well established now. We have also started a vegetable garden in addition to the herb and berry garden that I already had.
It’s also nearly the end of the school year here so I have been attending lots of end of year functions at the school, planning school parties, hosting Brownie and Cub Scout events, and going to softball games. And my daughter turns 5 this weekend which can’t go unnoticed. We are planning a “tropical” themed party for a bunch of little girls. Things certainly aren’t dull and I am looking forward to a breather in a couple of weeks!
