Much sewing–and thinking about sewing–happened here this week.
I’ve been playing around with quilt blocks made from my new Mary Engelbreit fabrics. It’s been forever since I pieced quilt blocks, so I needed the practice. No idea what these will be used for yet.
(The blocks are freebies from Craftsy.)
Working on replacing the zipper in this orange cycling jersey I made for my honey a couple of years ago.
Note to self: DO NOT SEW ZIPPERS SO SECURELY.
Settled on a plan for the barkcloth I got the other day: (yet another) travel bag, a tote bag for short trips.
I will enlarge this pattern a few inches and maybe add some pockets to it. If I can be bothered, that is.
Discovered the solution to the “too many leftovers” problem this week: put leftovers on grilled pizza and serve ’em again.
This one had grilled marinated chicken and veg from the previous night’s dinner; I just added some green onion and mozzarella for the pizza.
On Friday, I went over to SCRAP Tri-Cities to volunteer and–what do ya know–they had more Mary Engelbreit fabric.
SEWING THEMED Mary Engelbreit fabric.
I was, of course, helpless to resist.
I’m setting these aside for the moment since, at last count, I had 5 projects planned (plus 3 more I’m considering: summer PJs, another BOM, and a scrappy quilt) And I need to finish the jersey zipper and the blouse I’m making before I get distracted by shiny objects again.
On Saturday evening, my partner and I went out for a walk. Temp was still close to 90F–summer has arrived here!–but there was a steady breeze off the water and it was very comfortable.
(Enlarge for geese.)
This is Wade Park in Pasco, looking across the Columbia River toward Kennewick.
Have an excellent week, everybody, and may the sewing mojo be with you.
