I am so excited to be heading to Hampton, Georgia tomorrow for The Stash Bash!! It is a retreat weekend filled with lots of sewing, talking, laughing, shopping, eating and some fun and games, too. Chris Warnick (frecklemama on Flickr and Instagram) is the creator and hostess. She seems like so much fun, I am looking forward to meeting her and the other 50+ attendees.
Some WIP's will be coming with me...
This is a secret swap gift for a Sew South friend. We took an embroidery class and many of us fell in love with the art. Hopefully, she was one of them because this is going to be an embroidery kit - a place to keep threads, needles and scissors when working on a project.
I need to do the inside, add a zipper and the binding. I am not using a pattern, but was inspired by this one by Melissa (clothwork on Flickr and Instagram). Definitely check out her work, I am a huge fan of all she does and stalk her regularly.
I have also cut all the squares to make Anna Maria Horner's Color Dive quilt. This quilt was a big hit at market last fall and I have been wanting to make it since the first time I saw a picture. It is going to be for a certain someone who keeps eyeing my Patchwork Prism quilt - it will be a great alternative!
Cut and labeled, am I organized or what? I have learned that if I don't show up prepared, then I spend way too much time chatting and I really want to get some things done this weekend!!
I am also bringing along the Weekender bag that I started last summer. I finally got fabric for the piping and handles and am determined to get it finished!! I'll spare you yet another photo of the unfinish, but if you want, you can see it here.
The last two blocks for the Layer Cake Sampler will be posted on Amanda's blog on Friday, so I am taking the fabric for those, too! A bit ambitious to think I am going to do all this, I know! It is better to over-prepare than to not have enough to do!!
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced!
