Those commissioned baby blankets are done. They're soft and cuddly. I hope the customer and the giftee love them!
On to the disasters. Remember this? The pouch sewing kit I was working on?
It's driving me crazy. Sure, it looks precious. But I made some pretty big rookie mistakes (I consider myself a rookie, so this should come as no surprise). You see, the white is linen. I didn't prewash it. And I didn't prewash the red fabrics either. I never prewash...and I always use color catchers in the wash. Well, the linen has shrunk somehow while using it. And the red is rubbing off on all the white. I can't make a pouch out of it now. I thought I might just turn it into a mug rug and wash it, but won't the linen shrink up really bad and ruin it anyways? I guess it's worth a shot.
And my next disaster, which isn't such a terrible disaster because I have a fix for it. The good news is that I've finished quilting, binding, and washing my 100 Quilts for Kids quilt.
On to other WIP, I've sketched out and done the math for a new mini quilt that was inspired by washi tape. I need to grab a couple of FQs from a lovely online shop and then I'll put them to good use. Hopefully I can get that started before next Wednesday so I can show y'all a picture. And my Jack Attack QAL has stalled since I cut the fabric wrong (geez, I really am making a lot of mistakes lately! *sadface*). But new fabric is on the way and I'll play catch up, and this time, I'm doing the whole quilt, not just one Jack.
And now I'm all pouty after writing this. Maybe I really do have too much going on at once. If I slow down I won't make the mistakes I'm making, I'm sure of it. But I have so many things I want to do! Such is the life of a creative person, right?
