Wasn't feeling the sewing love today . . .
Thought I lost my mojo.
So I took out a charm pack and decided to just do some very simple
sewing . . . putting 5" blocks together to make a baby quilt.
For what baby I don't know yet.
It's cute. Need to piece a back now.
Then the QADD kicked in. You Know Quilter's ADD.
I started bouncing all over the sewing room.
"What should I do next?"
"I'm not feeling the love for any of it right now."
"OMG, there's some fabric I didn't know I had."
You know, like a squirrel on crack.
And then I spied this pile of men's shirts I bought at the thrift shop.
Wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but the fabrics were nice
and the colors were bright.
I remembered a cute little item I saw in a store in the Boston
area last year. I didn't buy it because, well, you know . . .
"I could make that myself!"
I didn't take a picture of it either because shop owners don't like
crafty people photographing the wares.
They want you to buy them!
After an hour or two of cutting and sewing
I had a nice little apron.
The collar from the shirt is now the waistband.
The pocket is left on the front, although it is hard to get your hand in it.
It needs alittle tweaking. And I need to MEASURE next time.
You know me just cutting it up and winging it!
On another note . . . . .
While I was cutting that shirt up, I looked out my sewing room window
and saw this big fat squirrel (not on crack) sitting right in front of me chomping on a nut.
Can you see him on the branch?
He looked very pleased with himself!
Did you make anything fun today?
