There’s a party this weekend at Chookyblue’s and we were all invited to celebrate her Chookshed turning 2 🙂
I couldn’t attend yesterday because we were at another party – my DFIL turned 80 yesterday, so we spent the day with him instead! Well, most of the day… 6 hours were spent traveling back and forth to the party, but it was worth it! We got back just before 10 last night and I told DH and kiddies that today I was going to be in the sewing room joining Chookyblue and the other ladies….
Of course first I need to tidy up the sewing room….. 🙂
So this post will be added to throughout the day as I get the room tidied up and start working on things….
Got a few things in mind to play with… so stay tuned for updates with photos!
1.48 pm Update
Ok, made a start 🙂
I’ve been cutting up scraps with my Go! Chisel die…. I thought I’d make a bright scrappy baby quilt, so I dug into my stash, found a feature fabric and came up with these bits and pieces, along with a rough scribble of what I want it to be:
After all those brights I needed something to relax my eyes, so I went through my non-bright scraps 🙂
Here is the die I am using:
Much more toned down….. chain sewed some of them together….
Ironed them out:
Played with a few arrangements…
…. and decided I like it, so I need to cut way more darks and lights to play with…. 🙂
I just made the mistake of walking through the kitchen to get a drink, and saw all the dishes… time for a sewing break and back to reality… I will do a few dishes and then get back to the sewing room 🙂 Hope everyone is sewing lots! I’ll go do some blog visits at afternoon tea time!
Well, I am calling it a day! Although it doesn’t look like I did much compared to some of the bloggers I visited, I am so pleased that I managed to do some sewing at least! Thankfully I have my sewing group tomorrow morning and a sewing date with Susan later in the week, so I should be able to get more done this week. But for Chookyblue’s party, this is it….
I did get the bright baby top done:
Sorry about the photo, need to get a design wall or something… it is dark outside and in, so that photo will have to do!!
For all those who are still enjoying their Sunday sewing for a bit longer, hope you keep having fun!! Thanks Chookyblue for putting on the party, and oh, last but not least, please head over to her blog and check out this post… it’s for a good cause!
