Today I had a day off.
(I've been so behind on blogging recently that you all don't even know that I'm working full time again now. No more 2.5 days a week. :( but on the plus side that means we have an easier time making our bills!)
|Part of my new sewing area! Bigger table, tiny stash shelf, drawers of notions. I also kept my old wardrobe for big storage.|
I shouldn't blame the lack of sewing / blogging on the increase in work hours... but I guess that contributed.
|Sewing table! My new table is so much bigger -- that's an 18" x 26" mat. Whew!|
Also - we moved! Whew - I'll be glad if I don't have to do that again anytime soon!
Today while Allie was at school (a new, fabulous, awesome school -- the major reason we moved)... I finally sorted out my sewing space. It's a shared space with our bedroom - which luckily is a nice big room with lots of sunlight!

So. I sewed today.
I grabbed a "project bag" of scraps that I'd sorted by color palate way back before the move, and I set off to make a doll quilt. No sense in trying to tackle any huge project right off -- it had been more than two weeks since I'd sewn, and never before in this house -- so simple and non-thinking seemed about right.
I really wished I had had more of the Moda Bella Strawberry, but those little bits were literally the last bits I had on hand! Other than that I love how this turned out. I used only what was in the project bag, and those were tiny scraps!
I managed to finish the quilt with enough time to take pictures before Allie got home from school! This little one finished at about 11" x 15"
