Agatha and I have been reunited.
Since I've done next to no sewing for nearly a month, I was eager to delve right in, but courtesy demanded that I pay attention to my mama, and Agatha had to wait. (My mama's visit was lovely, thanks for asking!)
My mama left this afternoon, and while I was very very sad, I only sniffled a little bit, then I called my sissy, who informed me that I had my husband now, so why was I whining? I adore her tough love speeches. They are just what I need. In fact, I often call her looking for her tough love because it keeps me in order. After the phone call, I enjoyed a visit to Trader Joe's--oh, how I missed you, TJ's!--then came home and surrounded myself with fabric. There was also some kidlet maintenance and feeding in there somewhere, but my oh my, the fabric!
First up on the to-do list are two drawstring bags I volunteered to make for Danny at Mommy for Reals. I thought the project was pretty much awesome, and I love me a drawstring bag. I wasn't bold enough to try the zipper pouch, but that is on my to-do list. The bags are for teenage boys, and let me tell you, it is NOT easy to find fabric for teenage boys. I found one FQ of the flames fabric, and I picked up an orange for the second pouch.
Speaking of a zippered pouch, all of these tutorials I keep finding say that I need a zipper foot. Well, punkins, Agatha does not have a zipper foot. She also doesn't have a walking foot. Am I able to do it with my regular foot?
Next up is my June BOM from In Color Order. The design is diamonds. Hurrah!
Upon completion of these two projects, and only upon their completion, will I resume work on quilt #4. That will involve visiting my local quilt shop and also deciding if I want to work my charm packet into 3x3 patchwork squares or cut those bad boys into 4 pieces and work them into 6x6 patchwork squares. The 6x6 will obviously be more work, but it means I can use the fabrics in multiple spots as opposed to only one location. I think the deciding point will be how I think it looks with the yardage I need to purchase. I should lay it out before cutting/sewing, but I so want to bust out that beautiful fabric and get to work!
Alright. I've got HSTs to tackle and French seams to navigate. Also, there is some Sherlock, Season 2 to watch! But tell me, what are you working on?
