My mom and I did a bit of shopping this weekend – the best kind. I went with the intention to stock up on wool felt for boy projects, a bit of flannel for some of the quick-change trousers, and for some lining for new oven mitts.
Instead, I came home with this. I hope to turn it into a few things – most necessary? New oven mitts. But I have also been wanting to try those informal looking log cabin blocks – a runner for my new kitchen maybe? I love the orange and turquoise for that. I will have an eat-in kitchen in our new apartment – can’t wait! Of course, I should probably continue decluttering and packing my house instead of daydreaming about sewing projects.
But just one more daydream. I got this fabric on the same trip – it is called Choo Choo You by Richard Newman. I’m thinking a quilt for the baby’s first birthday. (I know from prior experience these birthdays happen MUCH quicker than one would like.)
There may be a snag in this plan though. This is his older brother, who ran off with the “twains” as soon as it came out of the shopping bag.
I think I need to go shopping again. After all, I did forget to buy will felt.
What projects are you dreaming about?
