When I made the decision to transfer to a new school in the spring (and I do mean a new school, it wasn't even finished yet) I had no idea of the amount of work it would entail. I knew that I would be busy, but had no idea just how much work. I love being in a new school, setting up a new media center, helping set policies for the new school, but I come home exhausted every day. Sewing has almost become a thing of the past. I would love to come home one day and just sit down at my sewing machine and sew away. I have been doing some handwork and reading about sewing. I discovered a new book that I am in love with, Old Quilts New Life by Sarah Fielke. There are 18 different quilts that have been reproduced once fairly closely to the original and once in a truly modern version. This is one of the first "modern" quilt books that I really like.
I have managed to almost finish this wool table topper. The only thing left to do is put the backing on and stitch around it. This is a pattern from Primitive Gatherings and my hand dyed wool.
