I don't have much to share today, but I did re-upholster my desk chair last Saturday. I'm really enjoying that fun Ikea fabric on my chair. I have one more parsons chair and just enough fabric to re-upholster it also. I'm going to have to get a new staple gun before I do any more upholstery. I don't think I've ever had a staple gun that worked properly. Sean says he can get me one to use with the air compressor. I like that idea.
I still don't have the Spoonflower fabric yet, but I wanted to thank you all again for the kind comments. I'm working on completing the repeats of the designs I drew for the cheater fabric (not just scaling them up) so that I can do a yard of 5" charm squares. I'm anxious to get it done and uploaded!
I talked Shea into making a quilt top. I've got four cousins who are expecting, so she used some Tweet Tweet to make a little baby quilt. I didn't give her much help because it was an attempt on my part to keep her busy for a while so I could get some work done. When she finishes sewing the top, I'll do the quilting.
The house is finally coming along after some huge delays due to all the rain over the last couple of weeks. The rough-in inspections are done (framing, electrical, low-voltage, HVAC, plumbing, gas, etc.), so the insulation, sheetrock, and brick can begin next week.
Shea enjoyed climbing around in Sean's Bobcat thingy he uses to dig and tear stuff up. (I think it's actually called a skid loader. Impressed?) He was digging the trench for the new water line.
I've had a number of inquires about the progress bars I use for tracking my hexagon quilt progress. Here's the link to the progress bars I'm using over there near the top right. You have to do your own math with these, but I liked that they were small and customizable. Have fun!
I'm hoping to head to Dallas tomorrow for another Dallas Modern Quilt Guild Saturday Sew after we see our girl off for camp tomorrow morning. I'm ready for a break and the Saturday Sew sounds like a great way to end a very busy week.
