Labor Day Weekend

Polly, myself, and our minions (Leigh Ann and Luanne) will be stitching and hooking away this holiday weekend.  We joke that every Labor Day we are the ones laboring.  Timing.  We just got in the new wovens that will debut with our Indigo Crossing collection.  It will be pleasant work at least.  Lovely fabrics and Polly is scheduling lots of college football to watch while she hooks.  I would usually say that I would be watching baseball, but I might not have the heart.  It's been a wretched week in Tiger baseball.

This is also to remind you that there is a pretty neat blog hop starting tomorrow.  The 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge!

I think you can bet that my pillow case might contain one or more of the wovens that were just delivered.  

When all the quilts for market and stuff is done - I think I would like a shirt made out of the IKATS that we have.  Yes, IKATS!!!  I think a polka-dotted ikat shirt would be fab.

I hope you get a chance to enjoy a bit of the last of our summer--can't believe it's almost over! I think the ikat's would make great throw pillows too.

Love the new wovens, ikat shirt? You bet!

Logan said...

Great wovens!!! I'll be sewing all weekend (watching football!) as soon as I'm done working at the quilt shop!

Cynthia@aquilterbynight said...

Wow the wovens are fabulous! They would work so well with Sashiko. I look forward to seeing the Indigo Crossing fabrics.

I absolutely love the wovens!
I'm sorry it's been a bad Tiger baseball week, but it could be worse. You could be a Mariners fan like me!
Have a great weekend!
