It's WIP Wednesday! Time to give my project updates...
Yes, I'm still sewing 1.5" squares cut from scraps,
to make more granny square blocks for my quilt. Here's a picture of the newest dozen:
|Tutorial for these wonderful blocks is from Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches|
I think I'm going to take the advice left as a comment the last time I posted about my hopes to turn these 5" blocks into a king-sized quilt... I'm going to use them as leader-enders for all the other sewing I get into. That may help me get further along (while keep me from burning out on sewing granny blocks endlessly ;o).
Have you heard?
Sept. 23-29 is Selfish Sewing Week!
Jill from Made with Moxie and Rachel from imagine gnats have come up with a wonderful idea - a week of sewing for yourself. ;o) Doesn't that sound like fun?
Now, it's not as if I never sew anything for myself - the above WIP is for my bed, after all, but this week I'm also going to do some oft neglected sewing for myself. Clothing! I may be a little late in posting about my plans to participate, but I'm full of good intentions and ready to sew away the week. ;o)
All sorts of selfish sewing inspiration can be found on both Rachel's and Jill's blogs,
as well as in the Flickr group.
Here's my lofty hopes for some selfish sewing this week...
1. sew a pair of lounge pants (the previously made ones I share HERE and HERE wore out) from the pattern found in the book, In Stitches by Amy Butler.
2. sew a denim skirt
4. sew a new bag ( just in time for the Creative Stitches & Crafting Alive being held this weekend)
Linking up with The Needle and Thread Network for another WIP Wednesday. Hope to see you there!
