I shouldn't complain about the mess in the livingroom cause my sewing room...is well...let's just say it's a good thing it's in the basement cause it's...
But in my defense, I am busy. I have two quilts on the go. One a standard size and one a baby quilt from the same picture I spotted months ago on pinterest.
The standard size one is using 2 1/4 inch squares (before seam allowance)...1 3/4 after. With a green border. It's coming along nicely.
And the baby quilt is with 1 1/2 inch squares (before seam allowance)...soooo 1" after. Planning on a purple border for this one. Unfortunatly there are no baby girls on the horizon. But It never hurts to have one ....just in case. The last one that I made for a baby girl took me ten years to complete. I think my daughter was a teenager when I started it. Cause I was bored in my store one day. I eventually finished it a year after my g'daughter was born. So hopefully this one won't take that long. But I'm not holding my breath. I gotta say...that I'm already sick of the standard size one, not looking forward to making the baby quilt. I might have screwed up on the measurement of this one. Might end up being a doll quilt. All that work for a doll quilt. Not to sure I'm going to be happy about that. 36x36 hmmm maybe might have to add an extra border to this one to make it actually a baby quilt. Sooo maybe a green border like the original then a purple squares one after....would add ....8" over all....soooo 44x44....Don't mind me...I'm just talking to myself here... I'll have to think about this a bit.....
Uggggh, all those threads all over the floor. I have to vacuum daily in that room or else I get assaulted with white thread all over me. I have to de-lint myself everytime I leave the house. Otherwise I'd be covered in white thread.
Around here...it's either Hello kitty or Monster High.
And yesterday I had to waste time between dropping of the k'gartener and picking him up again 3 hrs later. The roads were so bad and the weather so rough that I didn't want to drive home just to do it all over again a couple hours later so I stayed in the general area and went shopping. I ended up At Indigo for an errand (once my daughter found out I was out and about the stores she texted me he shopping xmas list) anyway there I was in Indigo and being cheap as I am. I wondered over to the quilt mag's and spotted one design that would look good on the table.
...so I whipped out my cell phone and started taking pics of the pattern and the directions
anyway....6 pictures later when I got home I drafted the thing out on my handy dandy draft paper desk blotter. And now I have yet another project on the go
Not to mention all the library stuff I have projects to copy. This is what happens when I have to waste time-I generally stop in at the library. There's just not enough time in the day...Nor is there enough strength in my back. You notice the stool I sit on when sewing? It's the only thing that actually reduces the back pain.
Happy Snow Day
