Sometimes you just have to sew...


It seems so hard here sometimes to get going on a project - whether it is new or old. Because I have no sewing area, each time I have to plan and sit and and try to get a good amount done. So to fill the creative urge I have decided to try some small projects. So a few nights ago ( quite late) I worked on this. It is from Little Charmers II and I used a charm pack of He Loves Me II fabric. The charm pack only had 25 squares so that limited things a bit but with the addition of a few fat quarters from the first line of He Loves Me fabric I was able to do the stars and added a border to make it a little bit bigger. Because it was late at night some of the points are a bit wonky but at least I actually did some sewing. The machine is packed away again but there is no excuse not to sandwich this - maybe this afternoon.
I love the little charmers patterns and I have just discovered that there are two more new ones ( III and IV) shown at the Fatquartershop. I have a few charm packs here so expect to see a few more. I am looking forward to making some more of these, especially to practise my machine quilting.
I love this range of fabric - it reminds of the wallpaper I had in my room when I was still at home with my parents, which had daisies going all the way up to the ceiling on one wall.

I remember what it's like not having a sewing space, it makes it very hard to get into something. I have my first little charm pack o it's way in the mail at the moment, so I may need some of those patterns.

Great color of blue. I love the way it looks. I'll wish for you to have a dedicated sewing corner as soon as possible. =)
