Sewing Again

Melting Snowball Tote

I have spent most of the past two years adjusting to our new life.  Kids away at school.  Me away at work.  I have done little sewing, and what has been completed during that time was utilitarian.

Trio of Heather Ross Pillows

Partly this was because in the summer of 2015 we moved all of my sewing things from our dining room down to the basement, and there they sat for the better part of a year in boxes piled on top of each other.  Partly, I was drained creatively from working hard to create new courses.

KJR Granny Square Quilt

After wrapping up the semester in December, I started sewing again.  I finished two major projects that I had started back in 2012.

Berry Pie Quilt

I knew they had been sitting for a while, but I had NO idea just how long.  I went on to Flickr and looked at some of my favorite pictures and got inspired.  It felt really good to get behind the machine again and I am really trying to focus on excellent technique and craftsmanship.

Felt House Village

I got a years subscription to Creativebug and I am really loving a lot of the tutorials and classes.  I am a visual learner and seeing people make things is my preferred method of instruction.  There will be lots more making in the future.
