So Long for the Summer

Well, I'm a little torn. I will be off to Catalina Island to spend the summer as a Educational Naturalist for the Catalina Island Conservancy. Im thrilled and it should be a great summer. On the other hand, I can't bring my sewing machine since we'll be in an outdoor campground, so I will be relegated to a summer without quilting :( booo
When I arrive in Vermont in the fall I will have to quilt up a storm to compensate. In other news, my first quilt arrived back from the quilter today. Due to it's size and my time constraints, she also did the binding for me. It's absolutely gorgeous and I will try to remember to get a photo before I leave to show you all how it turned out.

Happy Quilting,

Finished the Twisted Bargello Top!

Sorry for the terrible, quality, I forgot my camera so this is a cell phone pic until I can get back to my studio to take real pictures. Here's the finished top! Minus borders of course.

More Bargello Progress

We added a few more rows Thursday. Hopefully we can add some more this afternoon. We're pushing to finish before I graduate and move away for my summer job.

Bargello Progress

A lot more un-sewing than is necessary, even in a bargello, today. I overdosed myself on caffeine and it definitely messed with my brain. Even so, we're 20 strips in, 15 more to go!
