I'm referring to the end of my long, long summer break. Orchestra work starts up for me again in just 2 weeks:
First will be "Romeo and Juliet" with St. Pete Opera Company
Then the Florida Orchestra season begins right after that with Beethoven's 9th Symphony. That's starting the season off with a bang!
So I'm trying to get as many projects completed as possible, and get ready for the upcoming market and craft show season.
In the works today:
Two selvage bath mats are in progress. I put my Old Lady feet in the picture so you get an idea of sizes.
I also started a new Autumn Leaves table runner. The appliques are made from the "Fall Medley" Accuquilt Go die (one of my favorites!)
And just listed in my Etsy store: 2 new table runners
This one in Yummy Blue
This fabric is "Brassica" by Kaffe Fassett. That's some gorgeous cabbage!
UPDATE: I recently mentioned in this post that I had bought extra wide (108") backing fabric for a quilt, and I advised always pre-washing those fabrics due to possible dramatic shrinkage. My blog friend Dar was kind enough to leave a comment on that subject:
So glad you mentioned about the washing of backing fabric BEFORE quilting it. I recently had a 120" wide muslin shrink 11 inches in the width. It created a big problem because the top was 117".
Yikes! Thanks for the comment Dar, and let's hope we all remember to prewash from now on!
