Now that I don't have to drive 40 to 45 minutes one way twice a day (to go 11 miles! Midwesterners, this is why people on the East coast are so cranky), I am so looking forward to getting in some serious sewing time. I've already decided that there will be no "dining room" table in the condo for a while. I'm getting fabric out and leaving it out and making a mess.
Because I was reading approximately 100,000 papers, I did almost no sewing this week! No wonder I feel antsy! Well, I did make a small bag, but then I forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it away to a friend. All I have a picture of is the fabric:
Believe me, it turned out to be a lovely little triangular bag.
So that I could maintain my sanity, I occasionally took a small break and bought some fabric. Okay, maybe I took a few more breaks than I should have, because I bought a bunch of stuff. Here are some of the best treasures:
Rainbow fat quarters! Those are sure to cheer anyone up.
These are some Allison Glass fat quarters that were on sale, along with another set that I thought were pretty. I have a bunch of the Moda 12-pack patterns and I think it might be fun to make some of those up this summer. Because, you know, I don't have enough projects that need finishing.
I also bought these random fat quarter stacks:
The two on the left are Angela Walters fabric and the other is just some happy-looking batiks. No real plans for these, but they were too pretty to resist.
I also got this kit from Craftsy:
It came with a pattern, but I really just got the kit for the fabric. Look at all those yummy polka dots! It was on clearance, too, so it was a really good value.
I also got some more hand dyed fabric and Lara Bucella's new book, Crafted Applique, but I didn't get a picture of either of those. Maybe I'll use them together! I've only paged through the book so far, but there are some fun projects in there.
So I've pretty much used up my fabric budget for a while, but I got lots of fun fabric to play with. That's my plan for the weekend, after I take a nap. I also plan to get some potted plants for this little tiny patio, just to make it a little more cheerful.
Hope you get some stitches in! Have a nap first--they're fun!
