I had other fish to fry this week. Like wardrobe cleaning and household chores which took precedence over creativity. Bummer. I hate it when I have to act all grown up and sensible. It stinks.
My week wasn't a total bust in the creativity department. I focused on making slow but steady progress on a couple of projects.
More work on the black and white and red quilt , which really needs a name because I'm fed up with typing black and white and red quilt every time I mention it. I've lost sight of where I'm going with this because all I'm doing is sewing strips and pressing seams. Once I'm done with that part the whole top should come together pretty quickly. It's just excruciating getting there!
The Dresden's were completely neglected.I feel like the Flying Dutchman doomed forever to sail but never reach port with that quilt. By hook or by crook I'm going to make some progress there this week or die trying!
I stared at some Christmas fabrics , played with them a little bit and then stared at them some more, trying to decide what I want to use for a couple of new projects. I think I have it all squared away in my head. It's almost July so it's time to start thinking Christmas sewing. Maybe then I'll actually be finished by Christmas! I like the idea of Christmas quilting much better than the reality usually. I have yet to make a Christmas quilt I adore. Maybe this year?
I took possession of some new fabrics for my stash which doesn't really count as crafting but I'm including it anyway, mainly because I spent some time lovingly stroking them and dreaming of new projects. I suspect Little P is going to benefit from this lot of cute-ness.
And Little Miss Sunshine donated some extra fabrics to the cause from her stash.
And in crafty mail news this week Lisa from Calicos in Bloom sent me this fabulous hot pad from a giveaway I won on her blog recently . Matches my kitchen perfectly. I love it! Thank you Lisa.
I'm planning a sewing assault this week. We'll see how that goes. Meantime pop by Kate's place , Life in Pieces to see what other people got up to in the sewing arena this week.
