I have done a lot of sewing, but yesterday was the first day I just sat. I didn't even set foot in the sewing room. But I thought. And thought. I am mentally working on Comfort and Joy! It's always in my head these days. I have gone through fabric looking for small pieces and even larger pieces that will work. This morning I did the two 9 patch blocks with the green, and then did the flying geese. I am still choosing fabric for the applique. I am doing this quilt along with Judy and a big group. I can't wait to see what fabric everyone is using.
On the applique...I think I have finally decided. I think I'm going to use fusible web and then do a few more blocks before I start the applique so I don't have to change thread so much. I will be using a machine that I'm really not used to, so it is pain at this point to change. I even tried invisible thread, but it just kept breaking. I will try again, but I am pretty discouraged about it.
I thought I would show you my sewing closet. It is not this neat now, but this shows the layout. The table that I cut on sometimes in on the left. If I'm going to do a lot of cutting, I bring it upstairs and do it on the kitchen island. The the fabric is sorted by color on the shelves. The top shelf is quilts ready to go with fabric and patterns. So many. I've rearranged a little and the next to top row is now UFOs. And it's full! And, of course, today the table is covered with fabric and so is the floor. I'm not a neat seamstress, especially when I'm thinking and auditioning fabrics.
What's on your mind that won't leave you in peace?
