Sew what?

My 2nd quilt ever

I think I'm a fabric hoarder. My stash is now overflowing out of my sewing cabinet and fills three plastic bins in the basement.

Why don't I just get to work and make some stuff?? I WANT to... but... I like some of the fabrics so much (like Alexander Henry's Folklorico collection) I don't want to cut them up. But mostly, I don't have the time or space right now to set up a big sewing project.

In four years, #3 will be in all-day kindergarten and the puppy should have grown out of her devil phase (she had better be, before she eats our entire house and yard...); and THEN I have big crafty plans.

In the meantime, I have been feverishly working my way through  Jennifer Chiaverini's Elm Creek Quilts books, like how I marathon-watched Mad Men and Downton Abbey on Netflix. And I'm making a list of stuff I want to make and do:

  • A modern quilt 
  • Seat-back organizers for the car
  • Dresses and skirts for me and the girls
  • Curtains for our abnormally tall patio door
  • A faux stained glass panel for above that abnormally tall patio door
  • Paper/fabric hybrid crafts
  • Woodworking something or other
  • Knitting
  • Take lots of naps
  • Get a haircut
