Another Little Top Finished

Do you remember that WIP on my table a couple of weeks ago?



There's some fabric in there from one or two old shirts. The bright orange pieces may have come from an old dress - I only got a portion of whatever it was. There's some new fabric in there too, and even a few pieces of what I think was some upholstery fabric.

I'm pretty sure a cat wouldn't mind leaving a few hairs on it. LOL

What Was I Thinking?

DH and I wandered into a "new to us" bookstore today - mainly to check out the restaurant upstairs. As we were leaving, we wandered through the Language section to look for some Irish resources (I'm taking a class at a local pub). From there - it was just a step over to the Crafts section - so of course I couldn't help but check out the Quilting shelves.

I came away with not one, but *two* books on quilting - "Collaborative Quilting" and "Freddy & Gwen Collaborate Again". I have come across quilts on several blogs that were inspired by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston, so I was excited to actually find these books myself to add to my library.

Now - to find the courage to try some of the incredible blocks showcased in these books...

Why look...

...it's an itty bitty sewing machine...



which looks *much* dustier in the photo than it does in real life.

Have I mentioned I collect sewing machines?

Today's Photo


Today it's a picture of some fabric that I'm just about to cut into. :)

I suspect this was a fat quarter from my favourite store, Sew Sisters. I think the battery on my camera is low, because it's actually in lovely autumn colours - must remember to save some for a leaf on a quilt I plan to make some day.

What's on your cutting table today?

Happy Quilting!
