I really admire how Linda puts together those fabrics. I haven't gotten that courageous yet, Modern is as far as I am willing to stretch. But maybe one Sew Stitch Snap Share Week I will shock the pants off Miss Linda and have some wild and crazy mixed up fabrics all tossed into one quilt and see what comes out on the other side. I am excited to try my hand at it actually. Maybe this summer when I get some of these projects out of the way.
Here is what I am working on right now.
I have a Fiber Group meeting on Wednesday morning. We are doing those Inspiration Letters. I have the letters H and E and put together the Tenement and Factory.
I was looking for something to use as the background and found this piece that I think will be good for the outside. If it needs an outside? I am actually not sure it does.
I will sleep on it and if it still needs one tomorrow I will add one.
Gale Garber came to our guild meeting this week and did a presentation tonight. It was interesting. She had a trunk show and of course her stuff is really nice Flying geese galore.
I bought some poly clothes line because I couldn't find cotton.
I was all hot to see how it would work.
I had done a couple baskets with the cotton and liked it but had not worked with poly before.
It was a bit stiffer as a finished product, but I liked it as well as the cotton.
I need to order some cotton line online I think so I can compare the two since I can't seem to find it around here anymore.
I found some purple poly so I might try adding some interesting stripes to another basket.
If I can overcome the boredom of going round and round and round and round I can make a tote bag and some handles..........
