This is the chaos that is my sewing space. I have been working on getting organized all week. I have stacked, sorted, piled and sorted again. Again and again. But I finally have all of the "to be decided" piles of fabrics and projects decided upon. So, my discards and keepers are all in their spots and I have two bins of stuff to get rid of!
I sorted the fabrics into color piles, that was fun. I always am pleased with monochromatic stacks of fabric.
I also made a little more progress on my sisters quilt this week. I am determined to have it finished BEFORE her birthday this august...I am especially determined because this quilt was a gift for her birthday LAST YEAR!!! I have all of the nine patch blocks pieced I just need to lay them out on a large enough surface to arrange all of them...it is a queen size quilt so I will probably lay it out on the lawn!
Here it is...a partial shot of the top two rows...
The width is about double what you can see in the pic.
I also worked out a new purse pattern last week, one I have been trying to work on for awhile now. This one is a handbag size big enough for essentials but not much more. I am also working on a pattern for a larger version of the same style, a shoulder bag big enough for EVERYthing to fit.
and the details...
the black fabric is a double layer of ultrasuede. Sturdy and soft but easy to sew with!
I'm still working on some swap offerings so check back!!
