I'm preparing for a short guild presentation on selvages. Suz shared some with me all the way from Australia...thank you!
My little featherweight was my best friend last week as I sewed many hours at the dining room table testing a quilt pattern for a new designer.
Here are the yummy Kona solids that I was playing with!
While I was sewing along, I kept thinking about his beauty that graced my bed during a weekend stay with a friend. I've been wanting to make a dresden quilt and these low volume colors are just what I had in mind! Is any idea really new?!
Outside, some days are really warm. I even spotted a tiny flower today! Forget that it snowed on Sunday or that there's more in the forecast!
My hubby has been slaving away on our basement re-do. (It's been going on forever it seems.) I think up the ideas and he makes it happen! This old window is now a chalkboard. My "new" old screen door gives access to storage under the stairs. When we get it all finished, I'll post a full reveal. Soon, I hope!
Last week was my birthday. My husband surprised me with these awesome shoes by Toms. The fabric used to make them is handmade in India at a leper colony and then the design hand stamped by artists working for JOYN.
