a little sewing, a lot of fabric gazing
This little block is all I achieved sewing-wise the past week. It's the March Block of the Month from Jeni's quilt-along. With one of my sewing machines being repaired and me having lots of heated fights with the other, there was not much I could do ... All should be well now, though. My trusty machine is back and I think I finally worked out how to get along with the diva of sewing machines. Let's hope so!
As I couldn't sew as much as I would have liked, I made lots of little piles for potential future projects. For instance, I'd like to make some new cushion covers for our sofa and I think this is the final pile. As you know, I love vibrant colours, but in our living room I prefer more neutral and relaxing tones. I'm thinking of making some traditional patchwork blocks for the cushion fronts. I still have to decide ...
In other fabric news, I was lucky enough to win this cute fabric bundle at the fabricworm blog. It arrived on the exact same day I heard that a friend of mine is expecting a little boy. Fabric destiny?! I see a baby boy quilt in that pile's future!
So, that's it from me for this week. I wish all of you females a great International Women's Day! I think I just might celebrate it with ordering some fabric I've been dreaming about! (Any excuse, right?)
