A week long catch-all

Whew! The past week has been a whirl wind and completely exhausted me. My BFF (Best Fabric Friend), Lee, decided it was time for a change of scenery and listed her house for rent. Little did we expect that a day later she would have a client that wanted to move in the following week, this past Saturday. So last Friday night started out with a pricing party at her house for a yard sale the next day! Fortunately the yard sale was a hit and a good amount of her stuff sold, but we still needed to get the remainder of it packed and ready to move within the week.  So basically, I was at her house every night after work last week packing, eating, and having a million great laughs into the wee hours of the morning.

I’m glad that she was able to find someone to rent her house so quickly and that we got her all packed and moved out, but I’m sure going to miss her around town! At least I’ll be seeing her two weeks for teaching in Winston Salem at Sew Original, Greensboro at Studio Stitch, and TULA PINK!!

As for this weekend, mom came down to hang out! Friday night was spent getting the last wee bits out of Lee’s house. Saturday morning we got a little bit of sewing in and Saturday afternoons we helped the cutest baby boutique in town, Peanut Butter & Jelly, move into their new location! The rest of the weekend and today, lots of playing in fabrics was accomplished!

Check out the bee blocks for Bee a Lone Star(burst):

I also finished up the quilt top to this custom:
And began playing with some new Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.

With the help of Mom and her serger, I started my first clothing article…Ever. Stay tuned for the end results! I wanted to start practicing on some garments before I bust into my Liberty fabric!

I was glad to have an extra day off today for Memorial Day to relax and work on some projects. It’s hard to believe that it’s been three weeks since the boy started Army Officer Basic Training. He seems to be learning a lot already! I’m pretty proud of him!

Bella representing!
And Bella is too! (Even if I had to cram her into her Army hoodie from her auntie Lee.
Happy Memorial Day!
