If you have been following my blog for anything more than a week you would know that I am falling in love with sewing....actually it is becoming a bit of a welcome obsession. As I've started sewing more my aspirations have changed. I have set my sights...higher maybe....or maybe just towards a different horizon. I am less interested in my own wardrobe as I once was
This is the intended outcome of my current project.
(click on it to go to the Purl Bee to see the tutorial I will be following)
I spent much time (and a little money) at Jo-Ann's today buying my supplies. I wandered the aisles, the stacks and stacks of fabric, trying to find my own color pallette (still similar and sunny). As I type the fabric is going for a spin in my front loader.
I realize that this will take much time (ha), patience, (ha ha), and space (ha ha ha ha....) but I've decided to try it anyway. And I'm inviting you along to watch...this will be like either watching the creation of a beautiful piece of art (hopefully crossing fingers) or like watching a train wreck in slow motion (like the decline of Brittney Spears).
If anyone out there is an experienced seamstress/quilter any tips, tricks, or advice are gladly welcome. To date this is the biggest project I have ever decided to tackle...but hey....go big or go home!!!
Well....here goes nothing....wish me luck!!!
