The last month has flown by for me. (Maybe you figured that out from my lack of blogging!)
Yesterday was the final game of the World Cup. Spain won their first ever World Cup! Congratulations Spain!!
World Cup Hexagon Month has also come to a close. That means it’s time to announce the winners!
Robyn of Coffee & Cotton will be receiving the Moda petit fours. Robyn is also hosting sport inspired quilt-a-long on her blog, check it out!
Valkryie66 is getting the Dream On charm pack!
While I was going through my scrap bag for my hexagons I made a pile of matching bits that I’ll also be giving away….to Bree of me and my 2 guys!
Thank you to everyone who participated in World Cup Month Hex-a-long. I hope it inspired you try hexagons or to finish some that you have been wanting to get done. I managed to make 270 hexagons done in the past month. Woohoo!
Yay! More World Cup Hexagon Month prizes!
This one is pretty awesome if I do say so myself. If you haven’t joined in the fun, hurry up!
Dream On by Urban Chiks from Moda is slated to come out in the Fall. This lovely line is inspired by vintage sheets. It is so pretty and I can’t wait for the yardage to come out.
I managed to find charm packs available at Whipstitch Fabrics (great shop). Check them out if like me you can’t wait until the Fall to get your hands on this awesome line.
I’ve been in a bit of a rut this week. So much great fabric around here and so many ideas but I just can’t get sewing. I am having a hard time choosing designs, even what road to go down, quilts, bags, a zillion other things. I really want to make something but I have no idea what.
I think it has something to do with all of this awesome fabric. I want to find the perfect project for every print. That’s a lot of pressure. I’m feeling a bit cuckoo.
In order to avoid making anything new I have been working on hexagons. They are a great distraction! (Don’t forget I have a giveaway for hexie addicts going on. It ends July 11th so hurry up!)
So instead of sewing today I am cleaning up this mess….
If you follow me on Twitter you know that one of the dogs in this house had surgery a couple of weeks ago. She had a cast on her leg and she wasn’t allowed to do anything. We even had to carry her outside so she could pee. So I moved my sewing stuff downstairs to the dining room table to babysit.
I have since moved everything back upstairs to my sewing room. Everyday I would take at least one trip to the sewing room to get something else. When I moved everything back upstairs I just plopped it all on any empty surface available to be organized and put away later. Today is later…
Wish me luck!! It’s like a fabric tsunami in here.
