WIP Progress and Moving

It certainly has been a wild ride since we moved in late December. I finally have all my sewing stuff; sewing machine, fabrics, rulers and other tools. 

We had our first snow storm last weekend which forced us to have some real family time with a fire in the fire place, watch some TV and make a big pot of chili. Yum.

I took this photo (above), from the kitchen window of our new home.

Finished court house squares, (above).

I’m still sewing and blogging on the dining room table, but not for too much longer. The furniture for the sewing room will arrive very soon and be in place. 
I can’t wait to share that with you.

I’ve been focused mostly on The Midnight Mystery Quilt from Cheryl@ Meadow Mist Designs. I am about ready to put the blocks together. I finished the courthouse steps during the snowstorm. 

And our sweet, little tuxedo cat, Emma decided to sit right on top of my finished blocks as they came out of the sewing machine. It’s usually her older brother Biscuit who does this. Or he sticks his head or paw through the neck of the sewing machine and likes to play tag with me. 

I ran out of the yellow floral fabric from Stephanie Ryan’s Modern Roses Collection for Moda. Fortunately, there was another fabric in the bundle that I thought would just blend right in there, and add a little interest because it is just a bit different. When I looked at both fabrics side by side, it reminded me of the positive and negative in photography. So I sewed up another four squares. I love the way they look.

That’s all for now. And, I’ll just keep on sewing and blogging!!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, and Let’s Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts.

    I am guessing you have a Bernina, as the 1/4" foot is #37, Super snow photo, a really good time to be inside, fire going, and machine stitching away.

    Hi Anne! Glad to see you have started settling in your new place. Love the colors of your quilt. Can't wait to see the top all together!

    Your kitties are so cute! Emma looks like she is a queen on her throne sitting on your blocks. 🙂

    Pretty kitty you have there and I had to laugh as my cat is always checking out what I am doing / making as well! 🙂

    It will be fun to see how your version of the Midnight Mystery quilt continues to come together. Your black and white helper seems very pleased with herself, and your extra yellow fabric looks to be a perfect substitute!
