No, I haven't been hanging on clotheslines or anything like my silly boys, I have just been a total sloth lately. I really don't feel like I've gotten anything done in the last few weeks. Pretty much if my kids are sleeping, so am I. Or I am at least reclined somewhere playing solitaire, fantasy fabric shopping, or completely neglecting my email. Which is really okay since I have three kids to take care of, meals to fix, and a house to keep somewhat clean. And let's not forget that baby girl I'm currently gestating. But with my want-to-sew list growing exponentially in the last few days, I really need to get off my bum and start something!
So last night I actually ordered fabric for a few projects that I need to, and I came up with this mosaic:
I have been going back and forth about what colors I would like to use when I start making things for the newest baby. Did I want to go with aqua, pink, and red similar to Ruby or Vintage Modern? Or keep it a little warmer with more yellow, pink, orange, and coral? I'm pretty sure most of you could guess which one I would end up using, given my fondness for orange.
I absolutely love this quilt by Anna of Noodlehead and let's not forget Hadley's beautiful Stained quilt. I think adding in the yellows and oranges helps me accept the pink just a bit more easily. I've always said that if I had a girl I did not want to overdo the pink factor, but now that we are having one I do find myself wanting a touch of it here and there.
So, yeah. Not much actual sewing going on over here right now, just plenty of list making.
What is on your To-be-Sewn list?
