Every now and then, when I post a picture of what I'm working on, someone always comments on my neat sewing table and room. I don't stop and clean up before taking pictures, I just like a neat work area and usually keep it that. That's why I thought you would enjoy these pictures. This is what my sewing room looked like after two full days of appliquéing my Hallowe'en 1904 blocks.
Is there a neat way to machine appliqué?
Between cutting bits and pieces of this fabric and that fabric for the blocks and appliqué pieces, using that Steam a Seam paper, and trying to make bias strips, my sewing room looked like it had been hit by a tornado!
It took an hour, but I started my day getting everything folded, put up and thrown away. No more applqiue for this project so no more mess.
Aaaah, back to my neat and orderly way of life.
The rest of my house didn't look as bad as my sewing room, but I did have some general catching up to do there too, and errands to run, so after cleaning my sewing room I only had time to get the hsts on my cat block.
But a finished block is a finished block.
It's hard to tell from this picture but I went with three different black prints and three different background fabrics.
As many of you noticed my blog got a facelift yesterday. My 3 year blogiversary was in August and my 500th post is a little over a week away, good reasons to freshen things up. I'm planning a special post and giveaway to celebrate my new look and 500th post, be looking out for it. Somehow my blog list got lost in the update, I'm working with my designer to get it restored, stay tuned!
