New Pillows and How Scary is This??
Okay, the first two photos, NOT scary. I had a few experiments with some batik, and thought it would be lovely to see some of Malka Dubrawsky's new fabric line, A Stitch in Color, and see if they look good together. We use a similar style and color palette, so I was hoping.....YES!! It looks fabulous together! I look forward to these two projects....and wishing I had access to more of her line to play with. The store I went to, only had a few of hers...but it looks good, yes? (Mine is on the right side, Malka's is on the left).
Marmalade Fabrics, as there was a link on Malka's blog. Yeah! I can't wait until they arrive!
This is the scary part. I love, love, love the quilt top. But it is really, really, really big. And, my machine has not been feeling well lately. It's been sewing with big birds' nests on the back. And if you don't know what that is, you are lucky. And if you do know what that is, I am sorry that you know! lol! Suffice to say, it's not pretty. And everything I did to "fix" the problem, did absolutely nothing. For two days!! Frustrating!! Meanwhile, I want to start sewing this big, mammoth, gigantic quilt but now I am scared. And it is physically difficult to move around in interesting patterns under the machine...and, I don't want to mess it up!! Twenty seconds of courage and the first stitch later...it is going okay.
