Anyways, I thought I would share some shopping that I did yesterday with you!!
Here are two more batiks!! I should really just buy the store out of this kind of material!! It's like candy for me, I want them all!! But, I seem to be gravitating towards pink and purples..... I am going to have to make a different choice for my next ones - I want this quilt to be alot of colours, but I also want them to work together!!
With batiks though, you can't go to wrong....
I also found a fabric line that as soon as I saw it fell in love!! "Stonehenge" by Sunshine Cottage. This one is #3941 www. northcott.net
It comes in many colours, and I know I will be back for more - but browns or fabrics I can use as backgrounds seem to catch my attention lately - and I love this one!! I can see getting more of this one........
And I have finished my BOM!! It only took me a couple days, but it's done!! This months blk is 4 smaller blks sewn together. Instuctions, use the two backgrounds and the 4 coloured fabrics.... okay, sounds simple enough - but - and there is always a 'but', why don't I use up some of my scraps for this blk. Okay - I will!! And I did. I just didn't like one of the small blks!!
I don't like the bottom right one. To dark. So I had to make it again:
Better!! Then I slept on it and woke with another idea!! Go Me!!
Why not use the backgroud as the star in the middle?? So, I did - and this is what it looks like. yes, I have them all sewn together now and I like it. All my scraps are now basically 'scraps'!! Very small pieces now!! And I do have two 'extra' blks!! But I do like this blk now. I think it's the best of all three. What do you think??
Today, my daughter tried to sew a bag... I was not much help, I try to explain, then get told how she wants it, and I finally just left her to it. Well, little mistakes were made and now, she wants nothing to do with it. Frustrated? Yes. Me too, but I did ask her if she wanted me to take it apart and that is when she told me she will never touch it again. So, I don't know if I should help or not. I wil probably take it apart - it's not that big of a mistake (she shouldn't have sew the lining on when she did) but if she is not going to ever use it, should I waste my time....
ahhhh, I am just talkin'. I know I will take it apart - and fix it. I just did not want to. But she won't ask questions because she won't like the answer..... and she won't fix it herself, I know that.
Have a Great Long Weekend Everyone!!! May the sun shine for you all weekend!! We are good Saturday, but Sunday and Monday, not so good!! Make the best of it!!
