Long time no see...

Well, I haven't been around a lot.  On my blog that is--I still love keeping up to date with everyone's projects and always check them out.  I just haven't seemed to accomplish anything myself.  However, today I saw this tutorial by Lee at Freshly Pieced, and I knew I had to do it!

Quick catch up--my hubs and I bought a house after our wedding, which we have gutted and now need to re-gut (so to speak).  Also, we're PREGNANT!!  So, between that and work I admit I just haven't felt too inspired.  I think that once we find out if it's a girl or boy (two weeks) then I'll start making stuff for the baby.

Because of a surplus of wedding gifts, furniture etc., and living in a trailer, this is my sewing room--I know right, ew.

Not user friendly

So, I grabbed a FQ bundle of Riley Blake Chevrons that has been languishing and got started.  I had wanted to finish, but it took me a while longer, and that mattress tends to get in the way.  So, I got partway through.

If it was sunny, not night, this would look nicer!
I decided that instead of saving half of each square as a scrap (so as to avoid colour repetition) I would just double it up and make two matching pillows!  I'm sure I'll find something to do with them.  Or I can give one away.

Anyways, I plan to finish tomorrow.  I hope.
