Our family is getting so large that we started drawing names instead of buying a gift for everyone. I can't tell you the name I've drawn, but I made my person a "Birdie Sling" by Amy Butler.
I've made this pattern twice now and love, love, love the outcome. But......this pattern takes forever to cut out. Once you are over that hurdle, you're home free. My Monday work buddy Holly, selected the fabric for me. She has a good eye for style and choose the new Nicey Jane fabric by Heather Bailey. Just about the whole fabric line is in the shop and it's gorgeous!
I debated about whether or not to include this picture of my "mess". Each bag holds my wonderful treasures just waiting to be completed. I start making my cabin list early and try to bring absolutely everything I need up to the mountains with me. In all of this mess, do you think I remembered to bring a "pressing ham?" There probably isn't a pressing ham for sale in a radius of 50 miles from my location! Well, I made do with a rolled towel to get all of the seams open.
I don't have a sewing room at the cabin. But I have a dining room with a wonderful view of the forest and the lingering snow. While I'm quilting or sewing, I'm always looking out the windows at the squirrels and birds. Occasionally I'll spot a deer. It's wonder that I ever get anything done.
