I Know, I Know....

I haven't written on this blog for some time. I know excuses, excuses. Work has been "creativity crushing" and I have put projects aside. I have been sewing, just not quilts. I picked up a pattern at a favourite quilt shop and I have been making soup cozies.

They are great, I put them in my lunch and reheat food in the microwave and no burnt fingers!

Stack ready to make some more!
Sally came to a workshop with me and helped me make a stop motion video.

I signed up for a sewing class during the summer. I will be taking a class to make a cotton blouse/shirt. I need to learn how to customize the paper patterns so they fit me. We will be making McCall's pattern M6035.

I am also in the process of signing up for a class with Jacquie Gerring. I hope to take her Slash and Insert class over the summer.

I can feel my sewing mojo returning slowly. I am reading blogs and getting inspired by all the hard work out there. I'll be getting back to more regular posts now that work is winding down and I have a new job to go to in September. Talk soon,
