Oh my goodness! For too many weeks I've read quilt books, watched baseball games with DH or simply researched some items on the web.
This weekend, I actually puttered around in the sewing area. The neat stacks of plastic boxes with scraps, great height of my cutting table, availability of books, etc. inspired me to review a few WIPs.
First I made covers for the dog bed inserts so the polyester bedding could be laundered. No quilting there, but did gain a sense of accomplishment. Next, I made some hot pads with the colorful Farmer's Market fabric. The fabric choices were tomatoes (almost look 3-D) and string beans. My choice of batting was 1 layer each of Insul-brite and cotton Warm and Natural. They should be nice gift sets. Now, if I can unearth the hot pepper fabric......
Hopefully, this is a start of a roll of hours spent quilting. I have a colorful nine-patch with alternating print block table cover partially completed. I hear it calling me back to the "construction zone" tomorrow morning. My break from sewing has left me refreshed and ready to have fun.
