In this house, I sew in what was the formal dining room since we opted not to have a formal dining room. I was lucky enough to get a new tables for sewing and cutting and love all of the light from the bay window. I iron on top of the rolling fabric cart and stand at my laptop all the time. The kids play across the foyer in the playroom.
How are those scraps coming? Don’t you love peeking into everyone’s scrap storage?
Today’s stop on the Scrappy Stash blog hop is Courtney over at Mon Petit Lyons. Pop on over and check out her stash.
I’ve been working on my tote bag for the Mouthy Stitches Swap Round 2.
There is so much talent in this group that it’s staggering. We are all using the same pattern for the tote bag but then get to make a quilted tote in a style our partner would like.
This is what I’ve come up with for the front of my tote.
I’ve got a plan for the back but can’t share that yet. I’m afraid it will spoil the surprise.
The pattern is called a Kaleidoscope Star, and I’ll post a template for it soon.
Now, onto some of those questions from the weekend.
Hadley asked, “What makes you blush.” lol well, I’d have to say the trashy steamy romance novels I read make me blush. I read all those 50 Shades and several others like it. Makes me glad I have a Kindle. I would be totally embarrassed if anybody (like my parents- eeekkk!) knew what I was reading.
Mom2Caleigh asked, “Do you live in NC? If so, where? Do you ever offer classes or visit quilt guilds?”
I live in Charlotte, NC which is a wonderful city. It’s clean, metropolitan without being too big, is beautiful, has great weather and the people are friendly. I was born here, grew up outside of Charlotte and my family all lives in Charlotte now too.
As for classes, yes I do! I taught a beginning sewing class this summer and had a ball. I’d love to teach a quilting class as well. I used to teach elementary school so teaching plus sewing- that’s totally up my alley! I’ve toyed with the idea of an online class too. Wonder if there would be enough interest? Maybe for a Christmas project or some paper piecing?
As for visiting quilt guilds, I’d be honored if someone wanted me to come.
Hope y’all are enjoying the Ask Me Anything series. More answers coming soon.
