Given that I spent pretty much all weekend in my pyjamas, (a passive aggressive response to having way too much structure in my life this week due to a return to work) I felt obligated to be productive while wearing said pyjamas and my two choices were sewing or doing housework. I chose the former. I was primed from my Friday Night Sewing Party with Little Miss Sunshine so the sewing party just rolled into Saturday and Sunday. Part-ayyyyyyy Weekend. It's been a long time since I've done that.
I started and finished my top for the FM Quiltalong over at A Few Scraps. Can you spot my grievous error? Thank goodness this is a practice piece.
Then I pieced a back for the Quiltalong , again not without minor incident (some unsewing was necessary)
I made the binding for my circles quilt , and machine sewed that on. I'm hand sewing the binding to the back, and since I have never hand sewn a binding in my life you might be waiting for a very long time to see this one finished. I'm trying a different way of binding this time in an attempt not to hate my finished binding efforts so much. Let's hope it works. I'm in love with this quilt and I think it's the best quilt I've ever done. Just sayin'.
I felted a pink jumper I was about to take to Goodwill and I came up with an idea for this crocheted shawl that I picked up from the op shop recently for the bargain price of $2.00. I also wondered when all this inspired thought I've been having lately will disappear.
On top of that I managed to have the Pyjama's clan over for dinner tonight (and yes I do need a bigger dining table )
and I went to Ikea today to get my new computer room shelves, which are now assembled and being used. Life is sweet!
