So much to do, this was the state of my sewing area- I have since tidied it. When I do a new project I pull out all the possible fabrics I might use and then dip into the pile as I sew. As an approach it is ccreative but messy, putting back doesn't have the appeal of getting it all out. I am procrastinating, I can't help it, so I thought I might as well blog and share some stuff.
Vintage feed sack squares, loving these, just arrived from USA great value from this ebay seller Shabbyvintagelady
Essentials from M is for Make I didn't mean to buy a set of co-ordinating prints but my head must have been heading that way. The herringbone Joel Dewberry print is to sash my Ringo Pie blocks, I am aiming for a printer's block wooden drawer look.
These are from Amy's soon to close fabric shop, I have been thinking about buying this bundle for too long, bit the bullet and it was worth it
I have made some Chirstmas present things and now Damian has sworn not to look I can reveal what I made for him but first here he is with our dog Lottie
A mug rug for work. There are a lot of in jokes here but a few other more obvious things like tea, chocolate, biscuits, love and kisses. The D paper pieced pattern is from Kumiko Fujita 318 Patchwork. Man quilting is always a test of fabric selection, colour etc.
The back of projects is always more revealing than you think it will be, especially with the applique lines. Reminds me of an old exercise book.
And Lula has been busy, a scrappy hoop for baby cousin Sophie. She procrastinated too but got there in the end.
Back to the sewing machine x have a great weekend x
