In the evenings, the sun sets over the barn in the backyard and spills really warm light in through the small western window in my new sewing room. I was working away cutting this stack of neutrals + aqua + teal + oranges into 9" strips of various thicknesses.
The light can be incredibly harsh, actually. It illuminated all the flaws on my much-used cutting mat and the shadows grew longer and longer, while these cute Happy Drawing scraps made their way into the quilt.
By morning I had a hefty stack of neatly cut fabrics. So, soooo many fabrics. Scrappy delight. There are lots of currently available prints in here like the Metro Circles, Modern Meadow Herringbone, Pezzy prints, Lizzy's stripe, Happy drawing scribbles and Heath by Alexander Henry. But lots else that I've collected over time. I love the variety that builds from keeping and sewing from stash!
I wonder how much I'll sew together on the trip? The talking and visiting will be far higher on the priority list!
Before I leave you for the weekend, I thought I'd share a few "Weekend Wishes" to borrow a phrase from Shannon.
That those of you in Handstitched Class enjoy moments like this over your embroidery.
That those of you near Atlanta sneak away to join us at Whipstitch on Saturday morning/lunch (that's tomorrow!).

And that everyone everywhere finds something sweet to take along or take away from our weekend rest!
