I have not been very productive in the sewing room lately. Other things get in the way. You know, things like work, the course I'm taking, yoga and dance classes, and ... umm ... laziness.
But the other day I received a package in the mail:
Two Kona solids (straw on the left and black) and two cuuuute Halloween prints to make pillowcases for the OnlyChild. Yes, she is 18 but the pillowcases are still fun for her (and for me to make). I use the very easy pattern from Sew4Home. I've used a couple of their tutorials and I find them quite easy to follow.
See - I'm motivated! I have to get these pillowcases made before next weekend. I'm hoping that will help me find my sewing mojo (my sew-jo) again, because it seems to have gone missing.
I still haven't gone back to that flannel baby quilt I started and I really should get that done before my friend/colleague's baby gets to university.
I still haven't quilted the Checkerboard quilt top that I finished in February. I love that quilt so much that I'm afraid to ruin it (sound familiar?)
I haven't even touched the Green and White blocks from waaaay back. Or the Authentic quilt I was experimenting with a while ago (hmmm... that Kona straw will look good with this fabric).
Christmas is coming too, which brings a whole other sewing to-do list. Yikes!
So, now that I've listed all my sewing inadequacies, I'll finish by saying that nothing is going to get done this weekend because I'm going on a road trip. I'm attending a workshop in the southern part of the province, then I'm staying with my friend Kim for the weekend. I'm really looking forward to the whole experience.
Even though it means no sewing.
Next week... surely I can fit in some time next week.
I have to, because I've also got these coming in the mail:
What was I thinking...?
