A Border and Soles

 

Yesterday I put the first border on.  I realized that I needed some sort of break from all of the color, so I sewed a 1.5" black border all the way around the quilt top.

January...

It seems like I have done little over break.  When you look at the pictures below, all of the seams I pulled out are not obvious.  I sewed the jeans down (partially) 3 times.  I basted the flyers on then sewed them on for real.  The soles, I finished today.  Before I can put the soles on, I need to be sure the jeans are where I want them to be because once the soles go down, I do not want to pull them off.

Break Time!

The craft fair worked out pretty well.  I sold quite a few Holiday Cards and a couple of record cards.  I even sold a shirt!

 

 

Holiday Fair

I have been working on making things to sell at a craft fair next weekkend.  If you are interested, I will be at Baere Brewing Saturday 12/20 selling greeting cards. I will have some holiday record cards, card packs, holiday cards, and love notes.  I'm hoping to have time to make up some fabric flowers too.

 

Digger Progress!

I spent some time on the flyer portion of the quilt.  This is the part that represents the wall.  Look at the photo below.  The flyers go where the ugly tannish color is.

 

Bags and Bags

I made some bags in hopes of stoking my confidence before starting the Digger quilt in ernest.  The above photo is of today's bag.  It's a little on the heavy side.  The pattern I used called for silk, and I used flannel.  It's pretty cool though.

Planning, Taping, Planning

I think I have selective hearing much more often than I'd like to admit.  This new quilt, which should have been Summer Quilt #4, is based on the song "Dragging My Feet" by Digger.  

Fabric is Here!

My Spoonflower fabric has ARRIVED!  I am very happy to say that it looks awesome.  I can now begin the production of the Digger quilt.

Draggin' and Scrambled

   I got behind on everything.  On top of that, I can feel my soul being sucked away each day I don't get to use my sewing machine.  

Destruction to Creation

This was once my favorite shirt.  When I was in my early 20's, I wore this nearly out.  Long ago, I put it away.  In our current house, it's been hanging in the hall closet ever since we moved in (7ish years ago).  I have not worn it in way more than 10 years.  Today, I destroyed it in hopes of making something else.
