Hallelujah! I finally stopped hoarding Liberty and cut into it. It’s a miracle.
This is Long Time Gone block #1 for the Liberty edition. I am pretty happy with these and get a little smile on my face when I pass my sewing room door and catch a glimpse through the open door (they are pinned to the design wall for now).
I also made another Sofia pouch (pattern here), this time using Kaffe striped fabric for the lining and a lovely Japanese fabric for the exterior. I can’t recall the brand of the outer pocket fabric which I have used in a number of projects previously. I love the fussy cutting on the rear. Sofia pouches are so useful and are pretty easy to make even though they include piping. I think I might use this to transport my hand sewing projects around so I can work on them at a moment’s notice.
And to cap off quite a productive Wednesday evening, I added the plain white fabric to the tropical cabins I assembled at Quiltcon Living Springs, made a backing and now it is ready for quilting. I don’t have a photo but will take it to the CBD with me tomorrow and look for a suitable photo venue so I can share.
Has your mid week been productive or dedicated to non-sewing activities?
