Erik finished up his built-in hutch and I finally got around to filling it! I pulled objects from closets and other rooms and gave them a new home.
I had the luxury of sewing this weekend with no tests to study for. I made some major progress on the Lantern Bloom quilt and just had to start putting the top together. Still have a long way to go, though! Those bias seams...
I tend to work on these two quilts together since I'm doing a lot of chain piecing with the white Kona cotton. Alas, I ran out of white, so I started piecing the jelly roll squares to get some color in there. Still a long way to go.
Today, I'm chilling at home with a minor cold and working on this little secret project and watching movies.
I don't think I've ever shown you my sewing basket. My grandmother bought it at a flea market for me because it reminded her of the one her mother had. I had some of this home dec weight fabric in my stash, so I made a gathered lining.
I also made a pin cusion/storage piece that sits nicely in the lid, but shows my lack of skill when making stuffed objects. It's definitely not a nice, perfect circle, but it works and holds my stuff.
And what am I watching?
When I was in high school, I was addicted to AMC and quickly fell in love with Audrey Hepburn. I had a VHS filled to the brim with one movie after another that I often studied and wrote papers to even into college and beyond. Mom and Erik both knew I meant business when I was working with Audrey on. It also meant it would be a long night : ) Once VHS died, I lost my movies: Funny Face, then Breakfast at Tiffany's, followed by How to Steal a Million, and lastly, Charade. I found these at my Half Price Books and snatched them up. Still looking for How to Steal a Million. It'll be a nice afternoon with my sewing and a box of Kleenex.
