Tidying and Tumbling...
I was all keen and ready to sew yesterday, went into my sewing room and saw the " mess! ".
I just can't work in a mess, fabrics everywhere...so I thought I would tidy it up.
Evey time I visit Kathy of Inspired by Antique Quilts, I'm inspired by her tumbler quilt header, and have it in my mind to do one.
My reproduction fabrics needed tidying and sorting out, so I thought while I'm tidying up my fabrics, why not cut some tumblers and sort the fabrics into colour groups at the same time.
Naughty me, I know I should not start anything new, but I thought I would cut the tumblers and put them away for whenever the mood takes me and I need something different to sew....and that saves me handling the fabric twice!...that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!
It's so nice sometimes to just handle the fabrics , play with them, just to see what you do have, in the way of colours etc..
The beauty of these tumblers, I can sew them together on the machine, so that should be quite quick to put together.
I'm going to only cut one off each of the fabric for now, just to see how many I get from my repro fabrics
It doesn't look alot there on the mat, but there are quite a few, enough to start with...but no! not yet, must get some other work finished first!
We are having a week of glorious sunny weather, today Dh and I might take a train ride to Fremantle, our favourite place for a seafood meal...
May your day be sunny too..
