I have been quiet lately...too much travel for the J.O.B. I am home for a few weeks and have LOTS of sewing planned. I am suffering from withdrawals.
I did accomplish some learning while I was away! I found this fabulous place in Indianapolis called The French Seam. Lovely shop with fabulous fiber finds-from couture clothes to crafty goodness. I also love that the shop is the dream of a mother-daughter duo. They offer wonderful class selections and I would love to go back and take a couture dress "boot camp". I was very fortunate to take some private classes with a teacher, Teresa. She taught me English paper piecing and hand embroidery. These are things my mom doesn't like and I had no experience at all. I love hand work!! How convenient since I travel all the time...
I am putting my new lessons to good use. I decided to do the Easiest Sew Along Ever. Love the idea of being inspired by something and using your stash to make something (ANYTHING!).
My inspiration is a quilt that I made several years ago with the Pop Garden fabric line that Westminster Fabrics had several years ago. I am making lots of hexies from the remnants of this quilt to make a beautiful swatch of fabric. I am planning a really utilitarian little project that I wanted to complete...I will keep you posted!
