After spending a few restful/active days in the snow with my family, I couldn’t wait to get back to my design wall!  Does that seem crazy to anyone else?  Don’t get me wrong, I fully enjoyed my time cross country skiing, playing backgammon in front of the fire,  and witnessing the smiles on my girls’ faces when sledding through the snow, BUT, I found myself missing my fabric and my design wall!!!  Okay, it’s crazy, but so be it!

On our first day back, after throwing the first of many loads of laundry in, I got right to work.  I had had this design on my mind all week and couldn’t wait to get back to it.

I had started strip piecing these gorgeous colors of Oakshott cottons last week and was working on firming up a design for them, when we left for our little trip.  As soon as we got back I began piecing in the linen for it.  I have a ways to go, but I’m excited to have a final layout and be on the way to finishing!  I don’t know how I would do this without my design wall, can you tell I get a lot of use out of it?!

Hope you’re enjoying a lovely weekend!
