So, my finger has finally healed up to the point where touch it to something doesn’t produce bizarre tingly feelings, so I’ve started doing a little bit of sewing again. Some packing (not half enough) and some sorting.
This is supposed to be coming together as a shopping tote.
Yes, even with the Kaffe Fassett Pickle Dish blocks.
Except that the colour isn't working. (It's not just the filter, I promise!)
You know when you have this really good mental idea of what something is going to look like, and halfway through you think it’s horrible and awful and WHY DID I DO THAT OH NOES, and then it turns out really really good?
I don't think this is like that. I just can't find this fabric's mojo.
Which is a pity, because I rather like the collection, it's just not working for me.
There’s not much more in progress than that. Most of my sewing stuff is packed away, so I can’t just browse fabric and decide to work on something. And I'm in a bit of a lump right now, struggling with all the stuff that needs to happen right now.
Although one bright spot is receiving the Massdrop bundle of Heather Ross’ ‘Far Far Away’!
Far Far Away is a lovely, lovely collection and it will most likely go in the ‘Imaginary Creatures’ quilt which is going to be made up of the Mendocino Mermaids, Gnomes, Unicorns, and aliens from HR’s other collections.
And I need to buy some unicorns yardage for backings. Because.
What have you been up to this week?
