I cannot believe it is already Wednesday again. I am in the midst of a busy wedding season (I am a wedding photographer) and spent Thursday-Monday traveling and shooting in the San Juan Islands. It was a beautiful trip but sooo much work. I am glad to be home and hopefully get some down time to work on my projects.
My Baby D chevron quilt got a little bit of love this week. I sewed the HSTs into blocks of 4 and am ready to sew them into rows. In a perfect world, I will have the top done this weekend.
I also got to do some shopping(!!!) while I was on the road this week. I picked up some super cute fabric that I’m planning on using for pouches. I thought I’d make pouches as gifts for people coming to my sister’s bridal shower. It’s in like 2 weeks though, so we’ll see. If not, it will probably make it’s way into my picnic quilt.
Oh and I received my order of zippers. I’m ready to go!!
On my shopping excursion, I hit up a thrift store having a great sale on clothes. I was able to buy enough jeans to use for the back of my picnic quilt for $10. I’m nervous it will be a little heavy, but I couldn’t pass up that price. Because of that though, I am considering making it a little smaller. Hopefully I can figure that out this week.
And just for fun, here are a couple pics for my working weekend.
On the ferry!
The gorgeous couple 🙂

Do you live in the Seattle area? I work in Seattle live in Lynnwood. It’s alway good to meet other quilter that are younger. Your photo’s look wonerful. Regards, Lisa Mortell
Hi Lisa! So nice to meet someone local! We just moved out of the Seattle area and are now east of the mountains (about 2-2.5 hours from the city). I don’t know any quilters in my area so I was hoping to meet some via the blogging universe 🙂 I’m excited to check out your blog!
Cute foxy fabric! Gorgeous couple, great pics! 🙂
Thanks Karen, I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any more prints until I used the ones I had… and then I saw those foxes, haha 🙂
Holy Zippers!! And a lovely stack of fabrics as well! Can’t wait to see the progress on your picnic quilt!
haha, I know! I thought I had done a good job of restraining myself when ordering the zippers and then the bag came… oops 🙂

You are a wedding photographer?!?!? That’s wonderful! Great that you were able to do a little shopping while on the road. You have quite an exciting life.
Thanks Karen! I’ve been shooting professionally for about 6 years now, but am hoping to take a little break after this year. It can be pretty stressful 🙂 Quilting is the perfect stress relief!
