What’s new with you??


Hello!  I haven’t cleaned my sewing room in a long while!

This was taken a few weeks ago; you should see it now, it’s even worse!!

I find myself blogging less here and posting more on Instagram. 


If you follow me on Instagram, @sewellen1, you’ll know that I’m deep into the quilt challenge known as #100days100blocks2017.  I’m having fun with it; currently, I’ve completed block #80, so there’s an end in sight.  The messy picture you see above is actually my staging area for pairing my fabrics.  I know it’s not the best system, but it’s working for me at the moment. 

Back in May, I made a few baby gifts:


I finished a decade old quilt (yes, you read that right):




This was a flannel block swap I participated in ages ago.  Glad to have it done finally.

I always have garment sewing in the back of my mind, and up next I’ve got my sights set on finally tackling an Alabama Chanin outfit.  Today, I worked on copying the design from which I’ll make my stencil.


It’s slow going, Summer’s busy, and there a quite a few distractions that take me away from the messy sewing room.

Happy Summer!!
