Look Mom! I Sewed Something.

I went to sew at the church last night with my buddies.  Since I found my corners for this quilt I decided I would get that quilt top going again.  I put a quick call into my friend to borrow her featherweight since mine hasn't been unearthed yet. 

Sewed on the corners then went about cutting the borders.  The fabric is a patterned stripe that runs lengthwise.  I looked and measured an fiddled a little bit.  Then I consulted with some of my sewing buddies and set to cutting.  I got all the borders cut and decided that I would sew them on later.  Well that got me into trouble the last time so I went ahead and attached them.  I have to press the borders and then miter the corners.  Everyone was packing up to leave at this point so that WILL have to be done later.  At least I know exactly where the iron and board is!



Is barefoot sewing universal?  Anyone recognize that other set of toes?

Spring Clover

I haven't been very productive in the sewing room but I have managed to make progress with a crochet project.  Does this remind you of the 80's?  Maybe that is because I bought the yarn all the way back then!  This is a combination of clusters and double crochet.

Go visit Judy L to see what everyone else has on their needles or in my case their hooks.

Look What I Found



My corners!!




I put them with the top and border fabric.  Then I put away some PIGS (projects in grocery sacks) and sorted out a few tools and some spools of thread.  Now I just have to carry my mojo in there and start working on it.

Still No Sewing

Nor any pictures.

I have been gathering projects and fabric and all things quilty into a central location. There surely is a long way to go. I was so happy when I found my Bloomers top and the border fabric together. I decided I would get that topped next. While I was looking at the border fabric and getting ready to cut it I noticed that I had not sewn the corners onto the quilt. I went looking for previous posts about this top and sure enough, I mention that I have to sew the corners on. Sigh....Do I know where said corners are? Sure I do! They are in the garage (I think) somewhere.

I have decided that I am going to make a log cabin quilt from a box of strips a quiltvillechat friend gave me. I know where there is some thread. I have to find a bobbin. May just have to check the machine to see if one was left in it. Not sure when I'll get to it but I really am trying to sew something...anything!!

I now return to my regularly scheduled chaos.....
