fiber arts friday

Happy Friday everybody!  Thanks to you all for visiting me here. 

It's been a crazy week at Chez B since The Saint has been working 3rd, yes, 3rd shift this week.  It certainly does change the household schedule around!  Try keeping 3 dogs quiet from 6-8pm...

If it's Friday then it's time for Fiber Arts Friday, a shout to Andrea over at Wisdom Begins In Wonder and thanks for getting us all together every week.  It's always great to make a few new friends in the blog-o-shere.

I've started the large version of the graph for the new quilt.  Why is it that things look better small?  Seems like when you blow them up they just don't look as cute.

Anyway, my fiber concerns this week are what kind of fabric I should purchase for this...

doesn't it make you think of summer?  I haven't sewn anything wearable for myself in a while so I think it's about time.  Ah, time...why don't I have more of thee?

All the dogs got a trip to Rena's Dog Park last night.  Only took about 15 minutes to wear them out..they are out of shape, just like their owner...

Have a great weekend!

That outfit is gorgeous! Goodness, I don't sew so I can't give you any fabric recommendations other than to say I can't wait to see the finished product.

Good luck and thank you for participating in Fiber Arts Friday.

Third shift sucks. I worked a split shift - three evenings and two midnights - for 15 wretched months of my life...

Anyway, have a great weekend!

I've been getting the sewing urge too...

My son was looking at the computer screen while I was reading your post and LOVED the picture of your pug on the sidebar!

A light weight crepe in a summery color would definitely show off the drape of the cover up.

What color are you thinking of?

Thanks for linking to my blog! I'll be back next Fiber Arts Friday.

Glad the doggies came to the park. Made Winston super sleepy too :)
