I enjoyed my nice long weekend, how about you?
Remember when I got home from Paris, and I wanted to do some sewing but was too tired to come up with a pattern or plan so I made this?
Well I've made another one, no plan, just random sewing.
I do have a plan for these. These are the medium sized Dresden blocks for my Dresden Doilies project.
I'm not going to start appliquéing any of these blocks to the red background fabric until I have all the red centers on.
I've given a couple a trunk shows this summer and earned a little spending money. My first instinct was to add the cash to my fabric fund, since I have a limited budget. But then this caught my eye and I couldn't resist.
At first, spending $100 on thread seemed a little extravagant, and that would buy a lot of fabric. But my thread box mainly holds grey, red, black, white and beige thread, so I could use some colorful thread, plus my thread of choice is Aurifil, so splurged on this box of thread.
And once I got this box in the mail, I knew I had made a good choice!
