WiP Wednesday: Small Progress and Big Squishy Mail

My mom is coming for a visit tomorrow and to prepare I've spent most of my time cleaning the house - well, and fabric shopping. I may be addicted! My shop has picked up again with the nice fall weather and I've been enjoying the fruits of my labors. I'm linking up over at Freshly Pieced.

In order to prepare for my mom's visit we've also started recovering our chairs and stools. I'm really excited about this project! The Kate Spain Good Fortune laminate is really going to make these so much better. I hope to have a finish post on these either tomorrow or Friday because they are also my ALYoF goal for August.

I finished the most adorable Sleepy Owl hat for a Canadian Mommy to match her little baby for Halloween - and promptly mailed it out without a picture! So you'll have to trust me that it was cute. This is from my latest order. It's going to be another Crab Hat. My most popular one right now. She also ordered a matching diaper cover. It's going to be so cute!
Here's me all jazzed up about my new Miss Kate bundle. I'm so excited about this one and have to pick carefully what to use it for.

Miya also got a squishy package this week. She turned eight on the 25th and one of the things she asked for was some Daydream by Kate Spain for Moda. She loves bright colors and animals and was so excited about these prints. She wants to get started on this right away even though her other project isn't done yet. Typical quilter. ;)

Here's my happy squishy mail. Isn't it a lovely stack! There is still a bit more coming.

Here's a better view of what I got. The top left are for my upcoming BYU quilt (tutorial here) I literally had no low volume prints for the center so I had fun going around and picking someone that had mostly white with black, gray, or navy. Top Left is Mochi Linen Dots by Moda. I got a FQ bundle of the whole collection and don't know how I'm going to use it yet but it's lovely. Of course next in line is Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. There may have been some squealing when this one came. Last but not least is a full collection FQ bundle of the Cotton and Steel Basics. I love these!! They are going to become the Aviatrix Medallion. I will start cutting into this next month but couldn't wait to own this collection.

So that's it for this week. Lots of great things to come!


  1. It's so cool that your daughter is just as enthusiastic about quilting. I think your chairs are going to look brilliant

  2. What an exciting and happy set of fabrics! Who makes the chemical elements print? I'd like to find some. I also love your daughter's approach to quilting--get them started while they're young!

  3. Julie it looks like you and Miya had some happy times! Hope you have a wonderful visit with your Mom!

  4. So adorable! All that fabric makes me drool! Beautiful colors.

  5. I am also interested in knowing more about the periodic table print.

  6. Go Cougars! I have that same quilt pinned. I love the Low Volume prints you have there. Very nice.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a quick note!
