Mid Week Finishes

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?

  1. Ali, my mid week has seen me start some applique for the Sarah Fielke BOM. My first time trying needle turn. Loving it. Which is lucky because my machine is being serviced and I am sooooooooooooooooo missing it!
