My birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I took the opportunity to head on up to one of my favorite local fabric stores The Quilt Place and browse their amazing selection of quilting fabric. I was happy to find that they are now stocking most of the Cotton and Steel fabric lines. It is so fun to see all that beautiful fabric in real life and not just on Instagram. I came away with this small stack of fabric. treated myself to some new fabric to fill up my sewing closet of course.
I have a problem I think. I really just like to start projects. Finishing them is not really as fun as starting them. Actually I've been thinking and I don't think it's bad to just start projects and not finish them. I like to sew and design for a creative outlet and to escape from everyday life from time to time. Just because I don't finish a project or never sew up the fabric that I buy it doesn't matter, it's the experience that I crave, not holding the finished item in my hand. So I made a list and if I get these projects finished, great!! If not, oh well. Does this make sense?
Anyhow, this little quilt is destined to become a wall hanging for my living room. I spent a bit of time on it on Mother's day treat to myself. I have it all quilted and it just needs a binding. Yay!! Maybe that will be my treat to myself tomorrow.
Until next time, Happy Sewing!
