Stash Diving

It's the first day of school holidays here, so I'm not anticipating a whole lot of sewing will happen over the next two weeks. But today my boys went off to play at their grandparent's house, so while the small one slept I did a wee bit of sewing.

Sweary Tula is finished, bound and will be posted off tomorrow. A little closeup of my favorite part :o)


 I also had a chance to finish the first azure section of Groove. I'm much, much happier now I've done the whole section.


There is a bit of inconsistency with the spacing - it was much easier to do in the wider strip, and it's a bit wider apart in this section. But I don't think it'll stand out too much overall.


I even had time for some fabric fondling! This afternoon I was 'cleaning my bedroom' which conveniently houses my stash. Needless to say, there was a bit more stash diving than cleaning ;o)


No idea if it will eventuate into anything (and I was really surprised how much I had of that sour green/yellow!), but it was way more fun than what I was supposed to be doing :o)

Oh your FMQ kills me - it is so awesome!! It makes me want to make more of an effort at the quilting side of things (I just need more patience!)!

Jess your quilting is soooo good. From one who has a go now and then at straight line quilting.....I wish I could do even a tiny bit of fmq. Wishing will get me no where. Gotta get down and try try try. xx

Oh wow, that FMQ is amazing! I posted off my sweary swap today, but the most stash diving I did was through my scraps for my extra o.O

Your quilting is so fabulous! If I could quilt like that, I think I'd celebrate by hiring someone to clean for me ; )

I am coveting that bundle of fabrics and in awe at your gorgeous FMQ!

Okay, so I must know how long you've been FMQ'ing?? It is A-mazing! I can't get over it. And is it all done on a regular home sewing machine? You are SO inspiring. I'm just starting out and am finding it rather daunting, other than basic loops or pebbles.

Cherie said...

Wow what stunning FMQ!! You should get a long arm and start up a business! =D

Your fmq is making me feel so inadequate!! That is the fittest stack of fabric - gorgeous!!
