In the mean time, I've been trying to clean my sewing room. I have 3 retreats coming up at the end of October, so I figure I need to be super organized in order to ensure I have enough projects to keep me occupied during all of that fabulous sewing time. So, I've been collecting and organizing bits in my sewing room, and trying to get quilts to a reasonable state to take with me.

Thoughts on colour placement? I think I'm pretty happy with it overall, but the oranges are so bright should they be either more grouped, or more spread out? The top right is pretty much a done deal - there are no alternate colourways for the wheel and the log cabin blocks.

Continuing to make progress on my Tula Butterfly quilt. A bit of Orange Crush added into the mix now. These are the "chunk crosses", and I also finished the floating crosses, but I don't seem to have that photo downloaded yet.
I'm really excited to see how this is going to come together, and I've been working on it almost every day this week. Incentive to get into my sewing room is great - but now I must push myself back to the long arm and finish up a couple of customer commitments for this month.

After a small blip getting started (only made one of each block), I have the first set of blocks complete.
I'm linking up at Patchwork Times (for the first time in a while) over at Design Wall Monday.

Apparently this is what happens when you continue to drop your seam ripper on the floor. I've always been an advocate of solid floors in a sewing room, rather than carpet. But I do suspect that this would not have happened if I had been dropping the silly thing on carpet.
Now I have to interrupt my sewing to hunt for one of the other seam rippers which I know is hiding in my sewing room.
