Its taking me quite some time to get back into the rhythm of normal life and blogging after our trip to Europe. What with jet lagged children last week and then not really knowing where to start, I have been very slow to get behind my sewing machine again. There are things that I know that I SHOULD be sewing, but at the moment I can't quite summon up the motivation to start.
Its not for lack of fabrics. I have a whole pile of brand new fabrics smiling at me from the corner, but I don't want to fritter them away so I am putting off cutting into them until I have a plan... hmmm this could take some time!
In the meantime I thought I'd start with something fun that doesn't take much brain power. Something that is an excellent way to use up cute fabric scraps and something that was absolutely not on my must do list until about a few day ago!
You see I've signed up for a polaroid swap over at Quiet Play. Its so much fun going through my fabrics and dreaming up cute polaroid blocks. (incidentally, I think there are still some spots available in the swap, so if you're interested hop on over to flickr and sign up!)
In other news, I've got a fabric that will be perfect to back my Tilda quilt. I just need to work out how to piece a cute strip down the middle to make up for the fact that it is not quite wide enough... I really want to get on with this project even though it has no immediate deadline. I'll have to get my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with... I also want to try some fun free motion quilting on the big white areas of this quilt- its time to play!!!
Hopefully next week I'll have more progress to show you.
In the meantime I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
