I haven’t sewn much since I stopped taking orders last December. It took a long time to even want to sit at a sewing machine. Once I had the need to sew, I made myself a to-do list that I HAD to get done before I could start something.
I’ve really missed sitting at my sewing machine, putting on my headphones and listening to TV on Netflix. It’s like an escape from my normal life. Right now I’m rewatching/listening to Life. Love me some Damian Lewis!!
I have a couple of projects in the works right now. Yesterday I started making a fun and easy quilt for my hammock, it’ll tie on and it might even have a pocket or two. I’m hoping to have it done for the fall lounging season, it’s way too hot for it now.
I’m also playing around with English Paper Piecing project, I’ve made a little stack of hexies for some new pillows for the living room. For this, I’m using a charm pack of Alison Glass fabric called Sun Print (2015). My sweet hubby bought it for me for Mother’s Day.
I used 1″ EEP papers and a handy little acrylic template from my LQS, Quilting Adventures, to cut the fabric and make the hexagon pieces. In the end, I want to make some pillows similar to Fuller by Design, lovely pillow tutorial.
What’s on your sewing machine?
