The 3-day weekend for July 4 turned into a short sewcation for me.  We did not have a lot happening so I got to spend a few hours sewing every day.  I worked on my La Passacaglia project, making more rosette centers...

...and a lot of the stars needed for the outer ring of each rosette.  

I also cut our more pieces. I will try to get those glued this week in the evenings because I want to put together some materials for handwork to take on an end of the month road trip I have planned.

I think I'll be interrupting this project next weekend to work on some other sewing I want to get done.

I hope your long week was relaxing at the same time it was celebratory!

Give Me Liberty

Are you a fan of Liberty of London fabrics?  I like the prints but the fabric is a little pricey to use for quilting.  If you are a fan, you might be interested in the Pop-In store at Nordstrom's.  

A few of the brick and mortar stores have a temporary in-store shop selling Liberty items and all of the merchandise is available online.  There are many cute items.  I like this coin purse but what really got me is this little suitcase.  Wouldn't it be great for storing a quilting project or supplies?  But a bit pricey; I'll have to think about it.

Today is a holiday from work, celebrating the July 4th holiday tomorrow.  That means extra time to sew!  Must get started. Enjoy your 4th of July celebration!
