I had to sew something.........

I'm not ready to start a new project before I leave so I made more cobblestone blocks.  These aren't trimmed yet.  I plan to take the blocks with me so I won't have complete withdrawal from projects and I'm sure there will be some time to play with them.  I have about 100 blocks made right now and will probably make a few each day this holiday weekend.
My finishing blitz kept me from doing a lot of things I wanted to do the last 4 months.  One of those things is to play with the stash packs from Vicki Welsh's Etsy shop, 10 fat eighths, in many color combinations.  This is a photo of 2 packs of oranges.  I love the surprises when I open the packs.  There is every shade of orange imaginable here.  Some pieces are way too precious to cut into!  I don't know if I'll get around to cutting any right away but I will have them opened out and pressed and ready when I get back.  My house sitter doesn't sew so they won't be disturbed while I'm gone.

It is hard to cut into her fabric - I decided to use a nice red piece of hers that I had and made it into a medium size tote to carry around with me all summer - then I can look at it all the time!

You must be getting very excited now! Will you be there to supervise the hanging, or will you leave that to others?

Vicki's fabrics are indeed wonderful.

Glad you are taking some of your blocks to play with while you're away. AND that you have plans for playtime when you get home again.

Orange is THIS YEARS' color of the year according to the national color board. It is everywhere, even the nurseries are over stocked with orange blossoms. But your explosion of orange fabrics on your table is awesome.
