Now that the summer is (almost) over, and there are cool breezes in the air, I have made my way back to my neglected studio. In the summer the humid and hot upper floor deters me from spending much time here, and it was used more as a guest room. But now I'm falling back into my familiar pattern of coming straight here and spending hours focused on a project, netflix in the background, and gigi sleeping nearby. Today I watched Mansfield Park, because a period drama is perfect for these kind of days. I christened the new season with a new project today, and started my sewing machine humming again.
In late spring my dear friend and I went to an ikea, and I spotted this simple woven black and white fabric. It was on sale for $1.99 a yard, so maybe us stripe-loving gals went a bit overboard in having a poor guy count out 20 yards for us. We felt worse when he lost his count 3 times halfway through.
It's been sitting here all summer, and although I tend to hoard my fabric stash, I decided it needed to be used. I've got a simple quilt project in mind, with the excitement in the quilting. Which is my favorite part of a quilt to be honest. Don't tempt me with triangles, I could piece together squares all day if it means I can get to the quilting faster.
