Night Sewing Tuesday, Jan 27 2009 

I couldn’t sleep last night, the Mister is away and University is busy and my brain was just going too fast for me to try to concentrate on studying or even feebly attempt sleeping. So, I went to the sewing room and finished the top of the purple quilt.

The border fabric is cut, but I had to leave for school, so I didn’t get it attached yet.

I really like how it turned out, the aqua and blue really makes it shine, almost iridescent.

So, some progress on the project, but now I need to catch up on my human population biology.

See you guys Thursday, cheers!

The State of the Art Tuesday, Jan 20 2009 

I seem to have run into the issue, once again, of having started projects and not finding them finished.  I got the most important project done just in time for Christmas, my first sewing project: a quilt for my mom!

Talk about jumping into things head first!  I went from being able to attach buttons (literally never having sewed before), to making a quilt that covers a queen sized bed. It was really fun picking out color schemes and textures, and taking a pile of pieces of fabric, cutting them all up, and putting them together to make something beautiful.

The Mister’s mom taught me how.

Now I’m working on a quilt for friend I went to high school with. Her favorite color is purple. It is going to be a very purple quilt. I’m excited to see how it goes, because this quilt is a lot more complicated (the first one was a very easy one), but it’s coming together slowly.

Maybe next I’ll make something I can wear, like a dress.  I could probably get a dress done a lot faster than a blanket. Classes are getting to a heavier point though, so I don’t know when I’ll get all of these things done.

Last, there is this long-lingering project I’ve been working on but not quite finishing. I’ve got all of the squares crocheted, but it’s the putting them together that I just can’t seem to get done.

I guess I’ll update as things progress. Luckily, not sleeping gives me time to study more and get these projects done!
