This holiday weekend my husband and kiddos have been obsessed playing a new video game together.
Which happily has given me time for my own obsessions.
I started a new embroidery which I’m totally in love with.

Part of the addiction is that I’m loving the colors and fabrics I’m using. They are mostly scraps… and a few new fabrics I picked up last week.
Most of my fabrics are 30′s reproductions, with a few Denise Schmidts, some Lecien Old New, and other scraps thrown in.
I’m still debating how many blocks to make, but I suspect I won’t mind making this a bigger quilt.
If you haven’t started your own trip and want to… I used the wonderful Quiltville tutorial found here.
