Wow, the past few weeks have been crazy! If you follow my blog you know that I just recently moved. We are still getting settled in and there are still random boxes around. I have my own sewing room now which is amazing! I have it semi set up. I need to get some storage units though. Until now I always kept everything in totes and I want some shelves to display all my fabric. This way I might actually know what I have and don't have. Life will be so much easier.
I did get time to get in a little sewing. I have been working on the above pieced for a few months now. A lot longer than I should have been. I needed to keep taking breaks from it. It is a commission piece for a friend. Thankfully a very patient friend. However my absolute deadline is in a week from now so in between unpacking I have been finishing this guy up. He is going to be a gift for a birthday. I only have one small section to do for the lower right hand corner and I am done the top. Then I need to embroider some detail to his face and hands. All I have planned for quilting is some stitch in the ditch around him and the leaves. There are so many seams in this that I couldn't imagine doing any free motion. There are a few random pieces of paper I need to pick out of a few of the seams. Hopefully I can find my tweezers soon. But I think I am well on my way to finishing him in time.
This week I am linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced for the first time in quite a few weeks!
