Fabric Tuesday!!!

Here's mine:
As you can see by my numerous posts this past week (or lack there of) that I've not been sewing a ton. Mostly because I'm too busy staring at the little stack of Innocent Crush FQ's - too intimidated to cut them, and yet to enthralled to work with any other fabric.

I paused today for a moment to finally get going on a sewing machine cover for Nancy - she's my main machine... (Wilma will have to wait for hers). The thing about sewing something useful for yourself is that you over think. I have pages of sketches of what I'd like. I want my favorite fabrics (AMH and grey). But I keep getting stuck. I like what I have here, although I think it'll be too simple for what I want. One side will be blues, the other will be pinks, and the top section (that fold over the machine) will be purples/greens. Bound with purple. We'll see. I may regret separating out the colors. So far I like the pinks the best. Yesterday was a no-nap-time day for the two year old (grr), so maybe I'll get this done yet today (tomorrow... as it's midnight here). Oh and that pink AMH Good Folks Cathedral is fresh from the LQS yesterday! I couldn't wait to cut into that!


  1. Lucky Nancy! The more I see of AMH's little Folks the more I love it.

    Happy Fabric Tuesday!

  2. I adore Little Folks! And I fully know what you mean about just staring at gorgeous fabric and having too many ideas or none at all. I'm still thinking about my Innocent Crush FQ stack, and so far, I'm just dumbfounded, and lost. Can't wait to see what you do with yours!

  3. I’d like to invite you to a link-up event at my place on November 5th and 6th called, The Airing of the Quilts. I’d be pleased if you could join us, and hope you’ll hop over to my blog and grab the party button so you can help me spread the word.

  4. Oooo I'm loving what you've got going so far! Can't wait to see it all come together. Thanks for linking up :) See you next week!

  5. Your fabrics are wonderful!
