...really helps motivate me!
What about you?
Lady certainly disagrees with me. She just wants to nap on the cozy-comfy chair with a quilt and some pillows!
Speaking of Sunshine...have you seen Tanya Wheelan's line "Sunshine Roses"?
Here is a snippet that really caught my eye!
Love the vintage-ness of it all!
I was able to add another row to the Linens Quilt.
Here it is from the top of the stairs. At night. Not a great picture. You know the drill. Shorter days, autumn blahs moving in for overcast days...
It's about 3' x 5' (that's how big the rug is and how I know...LOL). So here's where I need some help.
Do I keep adding to it (my inclination), or do I call it a day and put on a border for a lap-ish size?
I also took this little piece and backed it with batting and quilted straight lines along the seams on either side. I will add a back from another half-started project. The fabrics are mostly vintage and just raw-appliqued onto the gingham.
Another pillow for the kids to rest on! I love walking in and seeing them wallowing in a pile I've made!
Two WIP's put to good use.
And I added another row to the Scrappy Trip Quilt. Sheesh. It only took, like, about....months! LOL The three on the left side are new. I wasn't sure about the top, left one...so dark! but I like the balance it gives the blue. I had been individually cutting the squares 2" x 2" and sewing them...but I might try the strip method for the next one? Might help make things go faster, but I don't want to lose the effect I have going on.
What about you?
Are you sewing anything fun? useful? frustrating? uber-cute?
