WIP Wednesday

Well, school ended today! I'm out on the teaching job market, but in the meantime, I'm checking into some nice relaxation. Relaxation time = lots of sewing. And sew I shall (and read, and walk, and clean, and organize... there's such a thing as "summer cleaning" for school employees, right? Spring is too busy. :P).

I'm working on two double-sided fall/winter tablerunners, a commission for my friend, Julie. She plans to give them as holiday gifts later this year. I'll see her next week so I should have them done! Remember, you can request one of these if you donate in the "quilty" category for my husband's new business, RimeCore :) (though it doesn't have to be seasonal - it's all up to you!). Also, I plan to take on more commissions towards the end of July, so keep your eye on the blog if you are interested.

I'm also packing up my three mini quilt swap packages (Cotton and Steel, Lizzy House, and Anna Maria Horner). This is really a process! - making extra (optional) gifts, taking pictures, sewing on labels, wrapping them all nice and pretty, writing out cards, and getting to the post office. I'll be sending them out this week or early next week. I am so excited to give them to their new owners, and to receive three in return (though that is an extra bonus! I just love making things for people). I already shared Teal Peek here, and the other blog posts are forthcoming.

Lots of quilts coming up on here! I feel like I've been finishing a lot. Time to start something new?
