I had more of my fabric delivered from work today, including a bunch of scraps from various quilts and purses that I've made. I've been trying and trying to no avail to find a non-traditional scrappy quilt pattern that I liked. Today I just decided to forget all that nonsense and I'd just make one up. Now, of course it's nothing fancy and you'll see that when it's finished (it's so easy a cave man could do it) but it's for me, and it's a throw I can use while I'm watching TV (like that ever really happens but I'm justifying, here!). The good news is that a bunch of my scraps will not go to waste. You can't tell how much "scrappage" there really is by this picture but you guessed it, it will be another green/blue quilt!
Of course, I had to bribe my poor kitty with treats again to be able to get into the sewing room without her sneaking in behind me.
Little booger. Anyway, I worked on cutting my scraps and additional yardage I'd need for the quilt and then started sewing right away. It was such a nice day out, I even had the windows to the sewing room open! I got about 1/4 of the piecing done, and was locked away in my own little world for almost 6 hours! It felt good to be productive.
Then, (after taking a pain pill and resting on the couch for about a half hour) I decided I needed to get out of the house (for the first time) and go grocery shopping. I slipped into my favorite pair of jammy pants, threw on a cardigan and off I went! With a stop at Starbucks first, of course. After Starbucks I went to the shop to get some more batiste for lining in the next shirt I want to make and holy mackerel we have gotten a lot of fabric in!* I've been waiting and waiting and waiting on a Riley Blake group called Cool Water to come in because I just love it and I ordered every piece! We're missing one bolt apparently, but luckily have one already that looks exactly like it. So after I'm done with my throw I will be working with this yumminess
We also got some Make Life in from Moda (*Melissa, I totally thought I skipped over it with the rep but turns out I DID order some! Only four bolts, but we do also have another new Riley Blake that would've been pretty darn cute for your border!). I was totally going to cut off a couple yards of each of those fabrics to play with too, but decided I've got enough on my plate for now.
So all in all, I had a FANTASTIC day and was more active than I've been in all the last 8 days combined. It felt really great, and now I'm pooped. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! ♥
