monday design wall on friday

due to sporadic internet, this post got delayed....first, finished the "westering women" block for may, so this sew-along is current...then spent 2 days playing catch up on "365" and made good progress but alas, no sewing past 2 days means another weekend marathon. bottom photo shows the 8 days now finished.  now on may7th, so not quite a month behind, which IS progress!!  am adhering to the color value directions, but wasn't sure how other colors would work, but from the photo appears they play nicely with the blues in the original photo.  am going scrappy for obvious reasons.   happy to say that nearly at 6-month mark, aside from 3 FQs specifically needed, have not purchased any fabric.  not that i haven't seen oodles that i would like to have purchased, but alas, time is finite and prefer instead to have fun sewing up from what's on hand.  

dear sister has arrived for a couple of days en route to elsewhere, so 5 boxes of fabric left behind are now in maryland....and, ta da, cable has been installed at casa frederick, so now have internet access 24/7.....first up? catching up on blog and missed it definitely feels like home!


  1. Glad you have all your fabric now. ...

  2. Your pile of blocks looks very fun. I really like the Westering Women block.
    All the boxes of fabric have come home? Now you can settle in for some serious sewing! : )

  3. Yeay, for 5 boxes of fabrics that you treasured enough to store them and now they're home! The blocks are gorgeous especially that adorable blue pinwheels with cream background. Best ever to have internet!
