I'll show you the mess in a minute, but first I want to get some advice. Dh is going to build me a sewing table with the recess for the sewing machine to sit in so that it's flush with the table. Great for machine quilting. Down either side of where I'll sit will be drawers and a couple of cupboards. So here's where I'd like your input. If you were to have such a table made, what features would you want included? I did think of having a cutting table included down one side and perhaps a pull out slider for a pressing mat, saves hopping up and down like a rabbit.
This is the mess I created yesterday. Who would think that 9 little 6 inch paper pieced pinwheels could create such a mess. This was made in the process of getting Jenna's quilt top finished last night, so now I just need to pin it out and start on the machine quilting.
I need to have this finished by the end of the month so I can get it in the post to reach her in time for her birthday on the 13th. I never thought she'd be a pink girl....
I managed to get a few pieces of fabric over the weekend, hopefully some of them will go into the 4 season's swap quilt and also this terrific little book of quilt labels. They are iron on transfers, but as I'm not too fond of iron on's I think I'll copy them to the pc and just print them out as I need them. They lend themselves very well for embroidery, so hopefully I'll have time to use one of these for Jenna's quilt. I didn't find foundation paper for the paper piecing, well actually I saw one package of 10 wash away sheets for $9.00 and decided that I would rather spend that $9.00 on fabrics. If you have suggestions on foundation paper, I'd appreciate it, I may have to order it online.
Happy Stitching, and thanks for popping by and giving me your ideas.
