Over the last few days I have had a little impromptu sewing break. I haven't touched the machine, looked in my fabric cupboard and I have been Missing in action with my blog reading. Admittedly I spent most of my time at work, but when I wasn't there I was laying prostrate on my sofa reading trashy novels. I am feeling refreshed and my head is once gain buzzing with a million projects that I want to make.
I got home from work last night and decided that I wanted to make an Ipatch case (Kidlet speak for Ipad) for a friend. My obsession with the Dresden carries on and I have gone to other scale of the size spectrum with a little one.
I used 2.5" blades and some Walk in the woods mini charm squares. In hindsight I probably should have gone smaller as I am in danger of cutting the points off in the seam allowance.
I also finished the main blocks for the BQS swap, it is hanging on my wall until I can decide on it's future. Plain or print for the borders?
Now most people know that I have a thing for Melody Miller fabrics (who doesn't!!) and the lovely Annie of The Village Haberdashery fame sent me the most exciting email this morning announcing a pre-sale on the latest line Ruby Star Vinyl. Annie is offering 10% off FQ bundles pre-ordered before the shipment come in at the end of July. All details are here.
A bundle fell into my basket about half an hour ago ;-)
Don't forget that the Blog hop is still going on, head over to Beth's for a great new advice post and a giveaway. Up this week are:
Katie from Kati's Quilting
Jamie from Sweet Baby Jamie
Janine from Rainbow Hare Quilts
Now I am home alone and I plan to use my time wisely - Glee soundtrack is on and I am off to sew :)
