~Spring Fabric~

I have had this pile of yummy spring fabric sitting on my sewing table for a few weeks now! I am so anxious to sew!

The bottom fabric is a piece from IKEA. It has Huge Flowers all over it. My friend that I was with talked me into getting it since I was on the fence about it. I got it with the tentative plans to make a skirt for myself. I warned her that I would blame her if I look ridiculous. ;-)

The other fabrics are for my daughter, to be turned into three spring dresses. The white fabric on top is actually two king size pillowcases. I plan on making a nightie for my daughter out of one of them, and dip dying it with an ombre effect.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was sick for about two weeks. I'd be clutching my coffee or tea, my ear throbbing in pain, and stare at that fabric wishing I could sew. Does that paint a pathetic enough picture? Haha...I was really sick! I am so glad to be well now! Now that I'm caught up on housework, I feel like I finally have the green light to sew! After taking the above picture, I cut an apron dress out of the pink plaid fabric.

Oh, that makes me miss my sewing machine!

I hear your pain! My sewing machine has been limping along for quite awhile and recently started getting really bad, so I decided to finally buy a new one. I got it through Walmart's Ship to Store program. It left Coldwater, Michigan Wednesday evening at 5:50 "In Transit to Store" and I still haven't gotten the "ready to pick up" email as of Saturday night! I'm having sewing withdrawal!

I'm sure that fabric will make a lovely skirt!! Tonight I sewed a couple extra inches onto a dress I picked up at Goodwill. That really taxed my newbie sewing skills, but I'm finding more an more enjoyment in sewing!

I'm glad you're feeling better, and I look forward to seeing the finished sewing projects. Such pretty fabrics.

Happy Easter! He is risen!

Oh no, there's absolutely nothing wrong with chomping at the bit over that gorgeous fabric. Can't wait to see what you create!
