First of all, I have been getting ready to go on vacation. Used a 1 hour dress pattern to make a dress/ cover up with some of my favorite fabric. Of course by the time I modified the instructions in order to avoid raw edges in the seam allowances, it took a little more than an hour. But now I will wear it!
Made this wrap around skirt with fabric purchased from our last vacation!! Fabrics by the Pound, I am headed back!
Lined it so that I don't have to wear an awful slip!
Now for the admission. I left a comment on a post about keeping a sewing area clean. (These are my Modern Siggy Swap blocks after I played with them.) I said on the comment that I had to keep things picked up as I go because I quilt and sew in the dining room. Well doesn't that sound all neat and tidy. My family would comment otherwise! Notice these are stretching out on my bed!! I took my design wall down when I painted the dining room.
Probably would help to have only one project going at a time. But that just isn't the way I work. Dee calls it quilting ADD, and we both have it! ( See those siggys coming together?)
I am loving them! Notice that the quilting desk still needs painting, waiting for cooler weather. That's my story, and I am sticking to it!!! ;0)
Some projects just spread out.
These blues and purples are interviewing for a block to fill in the lower right hand corner. For someone who loves purple, I don't own enough of it!!
Well, Treasure is home from work (and off to get the air-conditioning checked in the van) so vacation has officially started!!!
(Did I mention that my family is vacationing with Dee's family?!?!)
