Did you know that my friend and co-author Cheryl came out with a new line of fabric for Connecting Threads? It's called Tag (you can check it out here), and it's all about the marks we make. It's a lovely collection and I was happy to have the chance to sew up the word "make" to help her celebrate the fabric release! She has some fun plans for this word (among others), so be sure to follow along with Cheryl and see what she's up to!
kindness pillow top. The strips of the letters finish at 1/2". I started with the k this time, and then I pieced the other letters around it. I'm not sure if I will turn this into a pillow cover, a mini, or if I will incorporate it into a quilt back. (Wouldn't that be fun?) I have plenty of other projects to work on while I decide! For now, I'm happy to have the block hanging out on my design wall.
Making makes Mondays manageable! (right?)
Speaking of making...
Happy Monday to you!
Fabrics by the bolt - wow!
I suppose I should keep the small scraps but I don't. If they are smaller than 2" x 2", I throw them out.
I still intend on organizing my thread by color ...
Love, love, LOVE your new shelving system!!! Wishing I had room for that type of storage...
what an amazing room and I love the 'oh scrap' basket!
I love you storage shelves and they would certainly make me feel like being very creative. Getting the storage right really helps make the space work for you. My sewing area/guest room is now decorated but I need to spend time deciding how I want it laid out and the storage system.
love your sewing room - that corner shelve is such a great idea too!
I love your sewing room.
Your shelves are wonderful! And so are your baskets for organizing. I bet you love walking in and seeing that!
The pincushions make great eye candy. Thanks for the treat.
I agree with combining this MAKE piece into something larger, like a backing.
Isn't it cool to think of all the projects that you and Cheryl have collaborated on? 😊
This looks pretty awesome. I like the idea of using it as a quilt backing.
It looks inviting and delightful! I enjoy reading your posts and love seeing your processes.
Your pix always brighten my days.
What a beautiful corner! Love your little 'make' sign!
Your corner is eye candy! I'm so jazzed to watch you and Cheryl MAKE dreams part of reality.
Your sewing corner is sew beautiful!!! Makes me want to run out and get some for my room. Great job!!!
Really nice, I love Ikea. Paula in KY
Looks lovely, Amanda, and it is so cool to see bolts of your Good Neighbors fabrics. It must be fun to have them there ready to go for every little thing. I love how cool it looks with the white cabinets and gray baskets. Hiding a riot of color! Where are all your little color coded scrap baskets? I miss seeing them. Show us the rest of your studio. It is an inspiration!
Very nice! Glad to hear the shelves are being anchored.
Would you believe I've never been to an IKEA! Haha! One of these days I need to go. The fact that it's an hour away doesn't motivate me. Your sewing room is looking good!
I looked at the photo before reading the text and in my head said "no one who sews has shelves this tidy, this must be for a photo shoot". Can we have a follow up photo in about 3-4 months!
Still waiting to hear if you are going to have patterns for the words you have drafter. I esp. would like to make a pillow using the word "kindness" that you showed a bit ago. Thanks!
