I had a couple days off work...

It's amazing what you can accomplish with a little "free" time.

In the midst of my fabric-buying frenzy, I stopped by my LQS and grabbed some Acacia charm packs! I also fell in LOVE with the new Kona Silver, which is now my favorite gray fabric of all time. I didn't know what to do with it all, but once I figured it out (inspired by these photos on flickr), I chopped the charms all up and threw them onto the design wall.

I thought this was going to be a pretty quick project, but as usual, it isn't content to remain the way I originally intended. So it's got to evolve some before I can finish piecing it. I'll keep you updated!

    1. I promise it wasn't one day! And to be honest, I haven't even been in the sewing room for the last four days, so it still looks exactly the same...

  10. love, love, LOVE it! I wish quilting could be my day job. I think that all the time when I have to be off work and get a little extra sewing time in.

    Thank you so much for linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday!
