Terry and I have moved a lot over the years. Every time we make a move, we get rid of all the extra crap in the cupboards, closets, and all the other storage spots. But we’ve had this house for 11 1/2 years and things have accumulated. Way too much “stuff”. it’s time to get rid of some things.
(Otherwise I can’t buy new)
I’ve been clearing out junk from all the nooks and crannies that I cram things into. With no basement or attic storage I have become very creative! (Okay, I do have an attic but things tend to melt up there and the steps leading there are very wookity.)
So I haven’t been sewing much lately and I have no project for today.
I did get a bunch of fabric, though. Fabric.com gave me a 20% off coupon for my birthday so I waited until some of the stuff I need (want) was on sale at 15% off and ordered a bunch.
Here it is…
Other than the top and bottom blue fabrics which are going into a quilt, I don’t have any real plans for the rest.
Since her room is pink and brown, I thought I might make something for Piper out of this piece but then decided she might not like those pigs. I can just hear her saying “Pigs are for boys”.
This will probably turn into something for a couple of the granddaughters. Pillow cases?
And I had to have these zebras. Pillow? Tote?
The one project I am actively working on is a denim quilt for Riley. I’ve been saving old denim plus Lauri gave me a bunch of Riley’s old jeans. I’ve “pinned” several denim ideas but decided that I didn’t like any of them. I finally designed this block which I’m happy with.
There will be 1″ black sashing between all of the pieces and it will end up being a 20″ block. The entire quilt will be three of the 20″ blocks across and four 20″ blocks down. The back will be navy blue minky and the binding will be a navy blue cross hatch.
Well, that’s my plan today. Could change. And could take a very long time to finish because it’s not as easy to cut the denim up into the correct sized pieces as I thought it would be.
And I still have a lot of cupboards to go through!
