Snowed under again
I suppose that could imply snowstorms, but it’s still a little early for those. It could mean that my list of things that need doing is looking a bit overwhelming. That’s a bit closer to the truth. OK, that’s pretty accurate right now! However, what I meant is that snowflakes are back in my sewing room. They arrived a bit earlier than last year.
You already had a peek at Snowflake Tree Skirt #1. I decided to add borders after all. People can just add fewer borders if they need it smaller.
The metallic gold fabric looks prettier in person. I’m not usually a huge fan of sparkly stuff and metallic fabric, but I make an exception for Christmas!
Now I have this little stack of fabric waiting by the sewing machine. I have to see this in Christmassy red too! In addition to that motivation I want to see how the measuring works out using smaller snowflake blocks. If the measurements for the setting pieces are not too fiddly (like sixteenths of an inch, for example) I could include a smaller size option in the pattern, for a tiny tree or as a table topper. However, I need to test it before I commit to it in a pattern. Oh darn, more sewing!
That’s not enough. Before I settled on this layout I was playing around with the snowflake blocks, and dismissed this idea because it would be too small for a tree skirt. Now that I am thinking smaller tree or table topper, I think I might revisit it…
And how would it look with some of my other snowflake designs?
And I still plan to do something with Winter Moons.
And I really want to work on a project that doesn’t involve paper piecing! This one is patiently waiting…
And I really really need to
make progress finish hand quilting my son’s kaleidoscope quilt. It’s cooling off in the evenings again so that is sounding more appealing.
How do I order extra hours for each day? In there an online shop for those?
