More of the Same

This week I finished the beehive cross stitch and started a new one, Luna in her Gryffindor lion head.  My fabric is a 28 ct light blue linen, but it photos as gray.
Pattern by Sewing Seed on Etsy
Pattern purchased from Tiny Needle on Etsy; store no longer exists.

I finished off the pieces to the quilt I was working on and have a layout decided upon.  The pattern is Shortcake by Cluck, Cluck, Sew and the fabric is Kate Spain's Paradiso.  This is one of two I was working on that I originally thought would match my new furniture, but it turns out they do not look nice with the furniture.  I'm not sure what I'll do with them; perhaps try to sell them.  It's hard to make any money on a quilt though; no-one seems to be willing to pay you the true value of the time and materials invested.

I bought a few new patterns to try for shirts since I'm still having trouble with figuring out how to move the bust dart.  Now I just have to cut out a million pattern pieces.

And I've made a preliminary fabric pull for my guild's next swap.

In other news, we replanted lettuce, broccoli rabe, and cabbage seeds in the garden a week ago and the lettuce and rabe are already up. I haven't tried a fall crop before, but so far, so good.

We have a meeting with a drywaller next week. I'm excited!  

Why is it that dealing with other parents seems like high school drama all over again?  Why can't we be mature and act like adults? I, for one, have no desire to revisit my younger years. Speaking of drama, so much of Facebook is so ugly and reflective of current politics that I can barely stand to look at it anymore (and don't most of the time).  Not sure if this is reflective of who I am "friends" with or if other peoples' pages are like that too.  Why can't people be civil?

MQX is next week!  I'm signed up for four classes and the awards ceremony.  

I still haven't managed to try out the Juki with the dampeners yet.

That's about it for this week.
