As I'm coming to the end of my commissions (which seem to have taken *forever*), I'm thinking about my next project (or five...) I've already started the Stained QAL, but me being me, I'm not happy to just have one project on the go. I should clarify there, one NEW project. Oh no. So I've been stalking the Retro Flowers QAL sites trying to resist joining in that one as well. I even entered the giveaways for the pattern and templates. And I accidentally won a pattern (yay!! first give away win!) So now I have to join, don't I?
Just because I'm a total scaredy cat when it comes to curves (which is rather sad when you consider I have 'done' the curves class. This means I have read all the project posts and not done any. They too are on my ever growing to-do-list...) I just ordered a curve master foot (the pattern told me to, honest!) and the template set. And so I'm really excited about starting it - and I get to do one of my favorite parts of a project: picking fabrics. I'm actually thinking I might delve into my Good Folks stash for this one (I figure pretty fabric might motivate me to keep going for once ;o) )
Is anyone else joining in on the Retro Flower QAL? There are some great prizes up for grabs and the link up isn't until the beginning of June so its a pretty low pressure one time-wise (although I'm thinking all the curved piecing is going to take a loooong time).
Oh and thanks for all our lovely comments regarding my fabulously well behaved children (insert sarcasm here - only about the kids, not the comments!). It seems I was just tired and needed a sewing break (surprisingly I might add). Kids have been a bit better, but more importantly I spent Friday and Saturday nights getting acquainted with a TV series I hadn't seen but have fallen in love with. The Dollhouse - absolutely bloody brilliant series. If you saw and enjoyed Firefly (another Joss Whedon series) you'll love it. Sci-fi/action and just really worth a watch.
I'll hopefully be back in a couple of days with some finished quilts!
