Yikes. It’s been quite a while since I’ve spent time on this blog. It’s been a bad combination of computer problems, massive work deadlines, and various trips. (The trips part wasn’t bad, just not conducive to blogging!) I had a fantastic trip to Seattle, a pretty great work trip to Sacramento, and a wonderfully relaxing Thanksgiving break in the mountains of Colorado. My favorite picture of the Seattle trip comes from an alleyway covered in street art and absolutely plastered with posters that stated “Love art and share it with the world!” A great sentiment to live by!

I haven’t had much sewing time, either, but I’m gearing up for some fun Christmas projects. I’ve started cutting all my Christmas fabric scraps (and some other red and green scraps) into pieces to make a super scrappy Century of Progress quilt (my favorite block from the Farmer’s Wife Quilt book). I think it’s going to be awesome. I haven’t sewn any blocks together yet (I am still in the cutting phase) but I laid some pieces out to get a sense of what it might look like:

I love it! I’m so excited to have more time to sew in the next few weeks!

This week, I finished the quilting on my Rainbow New Wave, created the binding strips (chose a rainbow of solids), and I’m partway through attaching the binding. I’m so excited to be almost finished with this quilt!

I also finished my little Farmer’s Wife Century of Progress potholder, which I brought into our office kitchen because we really needed one. Everyone seems to like it! One of my co-workers told me I should feel free to make her a quilt, if I feel so inclined. (Does she not realize how much work that is?!?) And I finished my little hexagon mug rug, which is a little small for a mug rug, but I like keeping it by my sewing machine to set my scissors on, so I don’t scratch my dining room table. So it’s a scissors rug.

Last but not least, the stuff I haven’t touched this week:
