Cupcakes, Aprons and Current Projects.
So here's what I've been working on: I have one complete zig-zag ribbon boarder completely finished. I have the flying geese for 2 mores sides finished. Unfortunatly, when I was doing the setting triangles I forgot to trim one piece of sashing and ran the sashing all the way to the end. I need to unpick and make two more setting triangles. What a pain. Seriously, I don't know how I missed that. I cannot find matching background fabric. Hopefully as I go to the Shop Hop tomorrow I can find the piece. Shouldn't be too difficult.
I started this lemon quilt as a diversion from the boarder, which actually hasn't been too bad. Less than a half hour per side. Not sure why it seemed so daunting
to me. Anwyay, I am having fun with this quick one and am going to put three yo-yos on the left side (my right) of the lemon. The pattern calls for wool flowers but since my oldest breaks out in hives when he touches wool I think yo-yos may be a better option. What do you think?
Next I need to get going on my Prarie Paisley stars for a block swap in August. So far, I haven't even gotten the fabric cut. I just need to get it cut and out of the way, but I want to wait until I'm done with Strawberry Lillies before I start something else. For whatever reason, I'm not feeling that motivated to finish so it's becoming a slow process.
Last night I ran over to Broadbent's to see if they had more background fabric. Although they didn't, it's shop hop so I had fun looking at all the new displays. I also bought a few unexpected patterns. I've been wanting to make some aprons forever. As a stay-at-home mom I feel like I'm always getting stuff on my clothes.
I need cute aprons to cover them up. I'm guessing though, that the aprons will end up cutier than my real clothes.
I also bought this cute cupcake pincushion pattern. Yes, I already have a pin cushion pattern, but I couldn't resist this. They had some already finished there that were soooo cute! The picture doesn't do it justice. My only worry.... will it make me crave cupcakes?
