Tilda even had a matching fabric covered button. So Cute!
And a 5" by 7" tablet or in this case my Quilt Plan tablet fits perfectly on the inside.
I recently purchased this book. The patterns are all paper pieced. I am thinking that that might actually make me think with more excitement about getting and and doing something.
This idea seemed sort of fun. However, my printer can not increase the pattern in the book to 125%. So I guess it is mask up and head to the office supply store for some help.
One of my daughter's peacocks has decided to shed his tail feathers. They usually do that in the fall. Looks like she has decided to make good use out of his feathers.
Have fun with your paper piecing. I'm pretty much over it for a few months. I'm just trying to finish stuff in the UFO pile. I move the finished tops to the "to be quilted" closet. Hopefully my UFOs numbers are going down. The little flower pots will make a very cute quilt. Hope to see it soon.ReplyDelete
I get in quilting slumps all the time...I think is has to do with way toooo many things to work on..like the peacock earrings...so cute. Have a great day!
Hi Donnalee! I hope this new project gives you a spark. Or maybe you just need to take a little short break?! Thanks so much for linking up today. ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Sometimes we need to change our focus to give us a boost. Sure works for me. Trying something I've not done before is exhilarating.ReplyDelete
I love those peacock earrings. Beautiful.
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
I feel you as far as being in a slump. Time just isn't on my side to get the sewing time in that I want.ReplyDelete
Ohhh! I hear you about your slump! I hope your paper piecing book will bring some freshness back to your craft! Your folio is so cute! Your potted flower blocks are precious! I hope the office supply company was able to help you out!ReplyDelete
If you have a printer that allows you to print custom and has a poster setting, you can print from home. On my Brother printer, I choose custom and then the percentage I want, then I choose poster and I check that I want cutting marks (so you can line up where to cut the pages and tape them together). Saves a trip to have them printed and and money doing it myself.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear you are in a slump, it's just awful to feel that way. Try uploading the quilt blocks to your computer and open them in Paint. Paint is pretty good at resizing for printing. Worth a shot before you head to the office supply. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down, I really like your notebook cover.ReplyDelete
That plant pot pattern is SEW cute (as are your daughter's new earrings!!!)ReplyDelete
Cute little notebook cover, I always like to have a notebook and pen on hand too.ReplyDelete
Oh those earrings, you daughter is so clever! I imagine she has a big vase of those glorious tail feathers in her home too.
The folio for carrying a notebook and pen in your purse is so cute and a really good idea! I love those blocks that are pots with plants sprouting, too. That's going to be a fun one!ReplyDelete
Sewing slumps are not fun...but I think it happens to everyone from time to time. I usually do some knitting, crochet, stamping cards or reading books until it passes. Cute earrings and love the tablet holder for your purse.ReplyDelete
That book looks like fun! Can't wait to see what you make of it!ReplyDelete
That looks like a very FUN book! Love the little pots. Could you just scan the page you want, save it to your computer and then enlarge by 125% and finally print that? That has worked for me in the past anyhow. It is a bit of work but would save you the trip. Good luck!ReplyDelete
What a cute little notebook holder!! I am with you... a little bit of a slump - heres to it going away!!ReplyDelete
Nice projects. I like to grab an oldie out of my hat and work on something different a bit. Then i usually can go back and tackle that uninspiring project.works for me anyway.ReplyDelete
