So I don't have a lot to show you.
But I have a problem bigger than that.
New machine + other sewing obligations = major itch to start something new.
BUT, having Christmas gifts, like this one below to sew, aren't my only hindrances.
I also decided this past weekend that I would reorganize all my fabric and sewing materials.
Here's what it was:
And then those big totes were all tucked away in to the closet... making them hard to get to.
But today -- that didn't hinder me.
I managed to lug them out, crawl around them, and take them "si-side" while Steiger ran around in the mud that is our back yard. (thankfully, only one small piece of fabric fell prey to his little muddy fingers)
Along with my own quilt along quilt, I want to get started on Cara's Urban Lattice Quilt Along quilt.
I'm going to be making the "manly" size for my man... and I'd like it to coordinate a bit with
These are my solids...I'm actually going to mix my neutrals I think (like this, or this, or this)... I hope it works well!
And these are my prints.
Kona Charcoal will be my contrast lattice.
Also, since we're in the "see what happens" days, and yet Jay doesn't want to find out the gender of our next babe early, and I'm determined to give him his way this time, and yet if Steiger was any indicator, I can expect to feel pretty crummy and not like sewing for a few weeks, I'd love to get started on my "if it's a girl" quilt.
In pink and purple. ♥
True story -- c. 1986...
Mom and daughter (me) walking through mall.
Enter punk rock kids with screamin' mohawks and hair in all kinds of technicolor
Mom: "Tracey, you wouldn't do that to me would you?"
me: "No Mama; I'd make mine pink and purple."
I've decided that any possible daughter we might make needs to have a quilt made with pink and purple.
