I have been so busy sewing! I started a sewing course to make an a-line skirt. I have made many over the years but thought I'd learn a few things along the way from the wonderfully talented teacher. After the first night at the course I was so inpsired to sew that I've since made a dress (that I don't have any photos of yet...) and two a-line skirts! I went to Material Obsession last week and the lovely Kathy had a gorgeous skirt on that she'd made from some funky Echino fabric so I bought some and whipped it up! It's from the Amy Butler Barcelona skirt pattern that I've had for a while but haven't made yet... It was so easy to make and I'm really happy with the result. Originally it was about 3 inches longer but I didn't like the length on me so I shortened it. I also copied Kathy's idea with the rick rack on the bottom - fun! :)
Then I went to Remnant Warehouse and bought some more fabric and made another skirt yesterday! I love it - it's so comfortable and I just love the fabric!!! (I've bought it in the blue & white too, shhh!) :)
And I've also finished piecing the top of a quilt - here's a sneak peek.
My photography leaves a lot to be desired, sorry!
Well I'm off to the park with my son... then hoping to piece the back of this quilt top while he sleeps later....
