A bit busy

Sure, the title of the post could refer to my life.  As a mother of three elementary-aged children, I am busier now than when they were toddlers.  And my friends who are mothers of teen-agers say it gets worse.

But instead, I’m referring to this:

I don’t know what I was thinking to pintuck this print, but I’m going to go with it and chalk it up to a learning lesson.  Pintucking=solids.  I do like it; the cotton is gorgeously soft, the colors are lovely, and even after the pintucking, it’s all right.  However, I have it on my radar to make a short sleeve version of this pattern in a solid linen,  a  f  t  e  r  .   .   .

I finish this:

It’s one square of what will be 100+ for a chevron quilt.  It’s a putsy job, cutting and sewing triangles, but it’s all for my quest to start using up scraps in my sewing room.  I did have to buy solids as my stash is nearly entirely prints…there’s got to be some pyschology embedded in one’s choice of colors and prints, but that’s probably a book, so I’ll leave that thought alone for now.

About lionsdaughter

I like to make things, lots of things, but not all things. I love to sew, knit, embroider, take pictures, scrapbook, dye fibers, work clay in the summer, garden. I want to try weaving, spinning, and stain glass work. I have no interest in auto body, upholstery, or tanning (either working animal skin or purposefully darkening my own).
