Don't know why exactly, but it has been SO HARD to get anything quilt related finished. Or started, for that matter. I think Presley has the right idea--this is how he's been spending much of his time--it's either in that chair (which is MY chair), or in a basket next to the sewing machine. On his back. He looks a lot like the other members of this household--we've all become slugs.
But Quilt Market is approaching...AGAIN...and stuff has to get made. Even if I don't feel like it. Which I really don't.
So in keeping with the Christmas in July concept (which I've never really understood), I actually did plug my sewing machine in today. I love the whole retro Christmas style and hope it hangs around for awhile. This project is fun and really easy. The ornaments will get some rick rack trim and the little hook thingies will hopefully get embroidered tonight--if I can find some house flipping shows on tv. Been loving watching those lately.
I also can't seem to get enough of the pink and aqua color combo so I'm going to do a second Christmas ornament quilt using these fabrics. I won't be doing more embroidery, but I'll have fun with the ornaments and maybe pull out my drawer full of fancy ribbon trims for those. Who knows--it may end up too bizarro to show anyone, but I'm kind of looking forward to giving it a try.
But first I believe a nap is in order.
