I finally got my sewing machine out after the Christmas break.
I suppose I have found it hard to start sewing because I knew that I had so many projects in a pile to finish before I start anything else. This is probably why I spent 2 hours on checking out every ones mosaics on Mouthy Stitches. I'm good at procrastinating!
I did do a clean out of my fabric stash and reorganised them in colour. I was hoping to maybe cull some of my fabric, but I knew all too well that as a hoarder I sometimes cannot part with things.
So today I decided to bite the bullet and connected the sewing machine up and before I knew it, I had a pile of projects closer to being finished...
Binding for two projects, - DONE.
Backings sewed for two quilts finished. - DONE.
Little Apples Quilt back.
And then I had to make a decision on what to make my Swoon quilt from.
This was one of my Winter Stitching projects but like everything else, I haven't started it.
When Kathy from I'm a Ginger Monkey started the flickr group, Swoon-a-long.
I thought it may push me on to starting.
I first wanted to make it from some FQ from my own stash instead of buying yet MORE fabric.
But I also wanted to use my Amy Butler Soul Blossom fabric that I have.
Yep. I have a half yard of each fabric. ( I did want to make the quilt that is on Amy Butlers web site with this) But as time has gone buy, I have seen a few quilts made from this fabric and I think that it needs a bit of white fabric to calm it down.
Do you think it will work as a Swoon Quilt?
I was a bit worried that the prints will be far too big and the pattern of the blocks will be lost, but it is time to use this fabric up, It wasn't my all time favourite of her collections and it was a lot brighter than what I thought it would be but it can't got to waste.
I suppose I could try one and see what it turns out like.
Fiona at Patchwork Delights is having a giveaway this week.
I'm a big fan of her threads and this is my stash that I got this week
I can't believe that it is the end of the weekend already.
Would anyone else like a 3 day weekend.
