on my desk...

on my desk::scraps

oops, i'm a day late (seems to be running theme in my life lately) but here's what's on my desk this week: lovely scraps of fabric that i'm randomly sewing together for some baby bibs. i finished the couch quilt on tuesday night, very much ahead of schedule as i was planning to hand stitch the binding and thought that would take me a couple of weeks. 5cm in, i thought, "there is just no way i'm going to get through 7 meters of binding this way" so ripped it out and jumped on the machine again. i wish i found hand work relaxing but i just don't. i find getting things finished relaxing and i'm so happy to have something cozy on our chilly leather couch this winter. i'll grab some pics this weekend for a little show & tell!

  3. I am so with you on the hand work. I always think- this would look better by hand, but then I am already working on two other things and move it to the machine instead

  5. oooh, such great fabric patterns! love, love, love the one with the little trees and the lavender/grayish floral!

    By the way, thank you so much for the inkjet fabric printing tutorial. I tried it out a few days ago and I am thrilled with the way it works!
