Ok, I'm ready to show you some teensy tiny patchwork!
I've been cutting this stack of mossy greens and sky blues...
into 1 1/2 inch strips. Then sewing those strips into stacks of six. And cutting those stacks to make a loooooooong row of pieced strips.
The finished squares are 1" square. And, oh my goodness, can you believe these pressed open seams? When is the back of patchwork that pretty?
The piecing is done, which means it's time to wrangle a long length of linen to make up the rest of this shower curtain.
Fabrics include 4 shot cottons, Hop Dot in Olive, Henna Garden in Leaf, Herringbone from Modern Meadow, Valori Wells' Nest Berries, and a couple of Freebird Ovals - all prints happily sourced from my fabric stash. Hurray for stashing!
also, I promised Brandon that I'd ask you for a vacation recommendation... Our 10th anniversary is this March and we're trying to plan a long weekend stay somewhere nearbye (South Carolina, Georgia or North Carolina). I totally hate planning these things. Ugggh. I mean, I don't know where I want to go (besides New York)! So, if you happen to know of a nice bed & breakfast or cool hotel in a town with something nice to do (and preferably, a modern fabric shop!), please do let me know. Unfortunately, he already ruled out Atlanta (which has fabric shops!), because it's too metro. So, something a little bit more romantic? I DON'T KNOW!
