Wednesday already? Only 3 days to the weekend? Awesome!
I’ve been horribly exhausted over the last few days, so decided it was probably best not to sit down at the sewing machine. I could end up with some impromptu free-motion quilting by dozing off with my foot on the pedal! Instead, I spent a happy hour or so sorting through my fabric and matching it to patterns. I won’t get most of these done in time for Self-Stitched September (more on that tomorrow), but it feels good to know where I’m going. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make for terribly impressive WIP pictures.
This is my quilting box. I only have 2 quilts planned at the moment, which feels nice and manageable. Also, all those solids in different colours look lovely together.
These are the fabric pieces matched to patterns. I have a list of notions to shop for, and hopefully I’ll get at least some of these done in time to wear in September.
And this is a true WIP! Yup, it’s that quilt again, a bit scrunched up to fit on our dining table, but in the actual quilting stage at last. The binding is probably my least favourite part because I find it so fiddly, so that will happen next week, I think. Will I make it in time for the 26th? Tune in later to find out!
Also, I’m starting to think about what sewing/crochet/knitting I want to take on holiday with me. Well, actually I’ve decided on the knitting, but the others are still being decided. Since we’re staying in the UK and will be taking the car, I have seriously thought “I wonder if I could put my sewing machine in…” Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s thought this!
