What I've been up to - Week 8

I'm slowly getting back in the swing of things. The family is adjusting. So far the news are encouraging. A bit less stress, a bit more time to craft and blog. I try not to start too many projects at the same time like I have done in the past because part of my craft feel good buzz is to actually finish things. So I have to concentrate my efforts on less projects.

I've been testing patterns for Linda @ Craftaholic Anonymous for her new Etsy shop, the Ruffled Begonia.  These are my test pieces :

A nursing cover and the cutest ruffled bag: The Layla bag

I also finished a little pendant necklace. 


The rest of my efforts this week were concentrated on a new quilt. Both sides are now assembled. And call me crazy for piecing the "back" like I did, But I couldn't get myself to ditch the extra blocks after the top was done. Time for basting and I think I will get basting spray a shot because pining is oh so unappealing. A little trip to JoAnn's is on the menu.



Still auditioning names for it, maybe Blue Diamond (I'm open to suggestions) 

And yes I do realize I did a lot of blue things lately. I think it's time to get out of the blue and into spring colors so I'm going to work on that next week... Well as soon as the quilt is finished. 

Last but not least we had great weather here the past couple of days and it's been finally warm enough for spray painting. So I was able to put the final touches to the play tent structure and take outdoor photos of the whole thing before I ship it out to my nieces in Europe. Pictures to come this week.

What have you been up to ?
