Yesterday I ironed all the new fabrics except for a couple that won’t need it. Three hours of ironing!! I took pictures, too, but they are not uploaded to the computer yet. I will have to upload them from the iPhone later. Today I found several quilting books at the library. I pretty much know what I want to make to begin with, but I do love to learn more . . .
I had a rather lazy day today, but tomorrow plan to be up bright and early and get that table cleared off! I’m ready to start cutting . . .
. . . and I do want to start on a couple of muslins, too. One for a friend and some others for the shop. I’m finding reading other people’s blogs quite compelling (and addictive!) so I have begun a schedule to keep me on track. One hour per day to blog myself, then follow up on other people’s lives. One hour for homemaking (not counting cooking). I know once I have some bits cut out, I will sail ahead; I wake up early but do quiet things until my Mum is up; sewing would be perfect. I think some Canada Geese and some Bestemor’s Flowers (Grandmother’s Flowers in English) are where I will start.
For machine sewing, I need to cut out at least two little girl dresses. And then there are the Edwardian aprons for girls and women . . . must plant more thyme!! (-:
Here are the photos:
First one is the yardage, Second are the fat quarters; the third is of three light fabrics to make blouse/dresses for a good friend.
