Unfortunately for me that's exactly how I feel at the minute. I have Labrynthitis which is causing me to have bouts of severe motion sickness and headaches. I can't go to work (yay!) but neither can I sit at the computer for very long, read or sew *sob, sob*! It is cruel to have me within spitting distance of my fabrics and not really be able to play, especially as the kidlet is in nursery ;-)
Anyway, enough moaning!
Yesterday afternoon I sat and rummaged around in my fabric cupboard trying to decide what to use for my Mouthy Stitches tote. This is what I pulled.....
|Mouthy Stitches fabrics - two background choices Kona Charcoal or Crabtastic newpaper print.|
I have two idea's in mind, a plan A and B if you like! Plan A involves a circle of wonky stars. I saw this Flickr picture which led me to this great tutorial. If I can pull this off (there are lots of tiny pieces!), I think it will look very cool.
I am a little torn between the Newspaper print and the charcoal for the star block. I love how the colours look against the newspaper but think they will pop more with the charcoal. Ahh decisions, decisions!
Now if plan A goes tits up, I have this as a back up.....
|Plan B - Lynne's Lazy days Lozenges Epp block|
I love EPPing, especially as a pick up, put down project whilst I am out of action with the sewing machine.
Right I am off for a lay down now ;-)
