Works in progress

March 22, 2011

Not much progress to report this week. Last week was school break here in Ottawa, so I relaxed a bit and spent some time with the kids. Among other things we checked out some coral reefs in the South Pacific (part of the IMAX Festival now playing at the Museum of Civilization). That was as close as we got to a beach. Now its back to school and back to business.

This is Anna’s March break project … she chose some Innocent Crush and Amy Butler for her mug rug. The only thing I helped with was attaching the binding. It’s been getting lots of use as part of her daily hot chocolate routine.

Here are some Soul Blossoms diamonds that I have been contemplating for a while. I mucked about with some sashing, but decided against. I’ve scaled back my ambitions … I think it’s going to be a table runner, not a quilt. And to be perfectly honest, squares set on point would have been easier and just as nice. I’ll keep at it. 

And here’s a piece of a shot cotton strip set that’s going into another project. More on that next week!

Don’t forget that 10% of your purchase this week will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross for Japan Disaster Relief.
