Busy, Busy!

Paper piecing stack by Amy Friend


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.

GardenMy perennial gardens have been keeping me busy too; there’s lots of weeding, mulching and watering going on!

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!
