It seems like it's feast or famine in my sewing room lately - either I'm swimming in deadlines and piles of fabric to cut and conquer, or my sewing table is buried in other non-sewing work that has to come before the sewing fun. And in the meantime, the deadlines are quickly approaching and the housework I'm actively ignoring is piling up. All that being said, there's been a lot going on in my sewing room, but not much I can actually show you for the time being. But that doesn't mean I can't show you a few sneaky peeks...
I've sewed up the last of the Lucky Stars blocks for 2014, which was both exciting and bittersweet. I don't know just yet if the club will continue in 2015, I'm waiting to see if some star-riffic inspiration strikes, but I'm excited to feel on top of the block making and pattern writing for once. It's entirely possible that I've saved the best for last, because these last blocks of the year are really and truly stunning. Can't wait to share more!
I'm also in the midst of preparing a boatload of class samples for some a super fun upcoming class I'll be teaching, and I'll hopefully get to share more about that in the coming months. I'm especially loving these adorable little Cotton + Steel tigers from Alexia Abegg's Hatbox collection, they are so cute when you fussy cut them!
The good news is that I'm plowing through my deadline list, and there are definitely more checkmarks than empty boxes at this point, so yay for that! Can't forget to celebrate the small victories along the way :) Now if only there was a Laundry Fairy or a Floor Scrubbing Fairy who could help me get caught up on all the housework that's been piling up!
