About Me

So one of my goals this year was to make a quilt. I have not started. Actually I haven't sewed in so long! I started working on an apron back in March or April and almost completed it but then stopped for some reason. Every piece was cut out it just needed to be sewed on. Maybe a task to complete this week.

Anyway back to the quilting, I want to make a quilt. Last fall I learned how to machine sew. My first project was a baby's quilt. I really like the way it turned out! One of my new years resolutions was to make a real quilt. I even bought some fabric and created my own design. However I got tired of it and decided I didn't want to make it anymore.

This weekend I sewed a patch onto one of D's workshirts using the sewing machine. It sparked a renewed interest in sewing and on Monday I made a stop at Fabricland and picked up some fabric to hopefully make a rag-quilt. It's using flannel material so it will be really soft and warm when it's complete!

I SHOULD probably complete the apron before I move onto the quilt. Maybe I can do both at once. A little bit of cutting for the quilt, and a little bit of sewing for the apron. I could definitely use an apron with the baking I've gotten into! We'll see. I'll post pictures if I ever complete either! Always more fun to start a new project than to finish one you've been working on for a long time. Although once the project is complete it does give a lot of satisfaction. Just gotta get it done!

The new material I picked out is a light purple/lilac colour. I hope the patterns go well together! I'm going to make it three layers with white in the middle. I may even make my roommates some pillowcases again this year for Christmas. They really liked the ones I gave them last year. Or I'll have to think of another project that is somewhat simple and useful for a gift idea.


  1. I am guilty of starting projects and never finishing them, like the scarf I,m half way through knitting, or the tablecloth I hav,nt quite finished sewing.

    Looking forward to you posting the pictures.

  2. I used to love sewing, I made so many (ill-fitting) clothes in high school! Enjoy your new hobby, I hope your quilt turns out nice.

  3. Hope your quilt turns out well! I'm sure it will. :)
