this Weekend

Delighted with fabric mail from Lark Cottons!  Prewashing today.  Oooh, that pastry voile in marine positively slays me.  The color is perfection.  (Was considering ordering more, but ack, they're out.  Did find it here.)

Felt like I got to sew, sew, sew!  So nice to spend the weekend at home with my things all spread out and nowhere to go. 

the way I left it... at sunset

Spent time with my girlie, who fiddled around with those fabric strips and discovered she could gather and sew them together to make a little fluff.  Little Miss Creative made a headband for her friend.  I suggested the fluffs might look good clustered to one side, but this arrangement was far preferable.  She and I are both so alike.  We always know what we like.

And last night, finished a quilt top!  I'll be back tomorrow with details on how to make.  This one would be great for your first quilt (or for eating up those strip scraps).  

finished top!

Hope yours was filled with light!  Did you get a chance to indulge in the creative?

  1. Cute post! Now I know what to do with my scraps, though not sure a 37 year old could get away with the double fluff!

    I finished my hex top on sunday and today I've basted her up, snug as a bug!

    1. I think you and I both better leave the double puff to 7-year-olds! Congrats on your basted top. You'll just have to enjoy some hand quilting perhaps, with your lower lip still slightly protruding? =)

  2. I love those pastry voiles, I really need to think of a reason to grab some soon before they disappear altogether!

  5. I did! I crocheted this weekend! Finished off 3 beanies and am now 3/4 of the way through a poncho! Not addicted at all! My machine felt a bit neglected so today is pouch and drawstring bag day! I can see it smiling at me!

  6. My strip pile is growing fiercely. I can't wait to see how you created your quilt top.

  7. Aria's headband is so sweet! I was happy to find some sewing time as well, in between grilling sessions. I didn't want to go back to regular life today!
