My Creative Space...

It's been a swappy sewing week here and the week I have been dreaming of, the kids have been in camp for the first time this summer!
 Of course my studio looks like this.




But I have had a great week of just being in there and getting caught up. These little guys slowed me down on the swaps as I was finishing them up for the Sisters trip last week. Eight little birdies for our house swap, the pattern is from Umbrella Prints. I love their fabrics and they have a new quilting weight fabric coming out soon with a free bird pattern with purchase! The birds were fun to make but a little tricky. I always do this were I jump into something I'd never tried before and power through. I guess that's how I ended up quilting and blogging though.




 This week has been about finishing up the last two things for my Potholder Pass 8 swaps. It was divided into potholders, tea towels, and grocery bags and I signed up for all 3. You can see my potholders in the top photo. I made my puppet like oven mitt for the second time and it came out great. I can't wait to send it all off in the mail today.




Besides the swaps I've made progress on the Curlicue Crush top and plan to have it all sewn together today. I just can't get the colors to look right I promise the next photo I'll take it outside.




 Make sure to see more Creative Spaces here. I am loving my space this week!

Those birdies are just too adorable all lined up like that! And I love the bottom photo - is that a quilted piece?
