I was browsing through my new Homespun magazine and found a cute little wall hanging idea for my sewing room wall. It is called "All my lovely sewing things" by Val Laird. Before I had even finished my February Hearts project I started using the left over fabric to cut out what I needed for this new project. I guess what attracted me to it was the idea of the favourite things she had appliqued on it and in my frenzy to get started on it I realized that her favourite things meant nothing to me. Why don't I put on some of my own favourite sewing things. So I looked around my sewing room and settled on four things.
My sewing machine - it is a Bernette (made by Bernina) and a real fighter and does everything I need so far.
On a different note I have felt the pressure of having a deadline for my February Hearts project. It was a great way for me to get into blog world but I have realized that my greatest pleasure comes from doing my own thing. So I have started to design a "Seashells" quilt and a "Potty about tea" quilt while I make my "Favourite sewing things" quilt.
Here are a couple of my seashell drawings. I thought 12 would be a good number with each one surrounded by courthouse steps in various blues. For the teapots I am going to do silhouettes of my teapots but that is still just in the notes phase.
I plan to do some blogging twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays. There has to be order! Random blogging is tempting but takes up too much time. I will still read and comment everyday because I love to see what everyone is doing. I will definitely be looking in on Colourful Fridays and Tuesday Treasures.
