wip wednesday & #13
not a whole lot of sewing going down this week, but i did finish something: another 4sq. yawn. i know. who wants to read a blog about the infinite ways to combine 4 pieces of fabric, some flannel, and embroidery floss? not exactly riveting reading but i do want to keep track of what i produce. it's sorta the purpose of this blog for me. so here you have it - 4sq #13 for my niece laynee.
i loved the robert kaufman grey with white polka dot flannel but was rather unsure about how feminine it didn't look with the orange floss for the edging. i like the way it turned out, but it just wasn't saying "baby girl" to me. katee loved it, however, so we're okay.
that's my one completed project.
oopsy daisy dozen quilt
trips to the store: none!
-some end of bolt items from the quilted castle
-my first ever bit of flea market fancy by denise schmidt, the height of trendy, hyped-up fabric. too bad the ones i wanted were all out. i got a little of the dots and one yard of the large floral with the yellow background.
- at long last, a few pieces of sandi henderson's secret garden from fabric.com. sandi is probably my favortie designer and i've had my eye on this collection she gave her first sneak peeks at it.
