15 Minute Challenge
Here's how my week went...
Tuesday - sewed the rest of the rows of the sock monkey quilt
Wednesday - nothing
Thursday - cut batting for AJ quilt
Friday - nothing
Saturday - basted AJ quilt
Sunday - nothing
Monday - nothing
So, other than getting the AJ quilt ready to quilt I haven't done much this week. I wanted to make a quilt for my DIL to give to someone, so maybe I'll finish up the sock monkey quilt. I need to get the backing/binding which means a trip to Joann's.
I like the "collecting inspiration" theme for this month. I never thought of buying fabric or books as collecting inspiration before; I thought of it as accumulating more stuff. Although it may seem like rationalization, I think "collecting inspiration" is an apt description and can make my purchases a little more thoughtful.
The things I collect for inspiration are books, magazines, and fabric. Probably in that order. I also print patterns from the internet -- I have a whole notebook of those. My recent book purchases were Growing up Modern and Patchwork Please. I got these because I like the bloggers who wrote them - Cluck Cluck Sew and Pink Penguin.
