I got quite a bit of sewing done this weekend. For starters…
OK, I exaggerate– I started these a few days before the weekend, and I did actually drag myself out of the studio a few times for margaritas, Cirque de Soleil, more margaritas, a delicious Mexican feast– thank you Lauren!, and date night with the husband. Still, finishing up these quilts was definitely a highlight.
It’s fun to fiddle around with more complicated designs, but I found myself returning to the basics over and over– and I’m always pleased with the results. It doesn’t get much simpler than stripes, but I love the bold graphic effect.
Obviously, I’m more or less always in the mood to sew, but sometimes I’m even more in the mood than usual. And these days, the force is strong. Something about the cool crisp fall weather, an apartment full of bunnies, and exciting prospects ahead… I just can’t get enough.
