The last week has been so busy. I guess I did lots but it didn’t include much sewing. Rather frustratingly I have several piles of beautiful fabric hanging around my desk. They keep catching my eye and taunting me. I have managed a little rearranging which is always better than nothing but not a lot else.
The piles are::
:: fabric to make a quilt for my cousin Nat
:: fabric and felt from The Village Haberdashery
:: stash fabrics and my little hoard of Maze and Vale hand printed fabric. Destined to be another quilt for Katie
:: leftover fabrics from making a quilt for our sofa. I’m planning to make little floor cushions like these (maybe they are pouffes rather than floor cushions but I’m never very convinced about using that word)
:: partly made bibs, always a pile of them on the go
:: chicopee corduroy for a skirt for me
I have also been planning and discussing a new quilt commission – I had an email recently from the lady who I made this quilt for (the pink and red quilt for Electra, right at the very bottom of a very very long blog post……I was very pregnant at the time!). Her daughter is now moving up to a big girl bed and she’d like a quilt to fit it. I am, of course, delighted to be working with her again. I can’t think of a bigger compliment than to be asked to make another quilt.
I’m hoping to accomplish a bit more sewing-wise this coming week. I hope you have a little time for the activities you love too. Not that I don’t love looking after my family it is just that I love other things as well.
