Yesterday was spent rolling on the ground, punching Mr. Never-Fall-Down Penguin, bouncing and eating fake picnic food with my little Maze. I did not cook. I did not clean. I did not sew. It was a great day.
Last night, though, I took a quick dive into my mess of a sewing room to complete my two blocks for the Sew.Happy.Geek QAL.. I was having a hard time deciding which fabrics I should use. Should I do aqua and orange? The oh-so-popular aqua and red? Should I try something different and use lots of warm colors since I generally lean toward cooler ones? Should i use all solids??? The decision was too much, then I remembered I had 13 FQs sitting aside of Tailor Made from forever ago that I was sure I was never going to use as a collection, but I didn't have the heart to break up. The colors aren't as bright as I would like, but I really like a few of the prints, so they won! This quilt is going to be a play blanket for Mazer anyway, so it doesn't really matter which colors I use, right?
Woven Block. I really like Jennifer's version. SO much better than mine, but I'm okay with it because I'm just using up stash here! Plus. mine's going to be pooped and puked on. The drab colors are better for that!
Snowball Block. I actually really like the blue scissor print and this cute flower print. It has spools, scissors and little worms on it! These two prints are the reason I bought this set in the first place. Then Half Moon Modern came out and I had lots more scissor options and this set fell by the wayside.
I JUST got into my sewing room today and I am hoping to make some good headway. I love crossing things off my "To-Do" list! I've got a nice playlist going of Tegan and Sara, Rilo Kiley, and Death Cab for Cutie, a full cup of tea, and the hubster home to watch the baby! Wish me luck!
