I've been so excited about sewing!! A few things that have got me going again - the nice weather, a cleaner sewing room (took hours and it is looking much better), the new girls dresses, the new blue and green chenille quilt I'm making, an order for two teddy bears (yipee! Got it yesterday as well as an Etsy sale for our "Bonnnie the Bunny"), and I've been commissioned to make a "Memory Quilt" out of old baby clothes!! As I wait for the box of clothes to arrive, I thought about how we could pare-down our possessions. This morning I threw a thought at my hubby: How about I make you a throw quilt with some of your old t-shirts?? Much to my surprise, he AGREED!!! So as I finish up the mint green chenille teddy bear, I'm hoping he starts looking through the THOUSANDS of tees (in my mind it is 'thousands') and pulls the ones I am free to cut and sew. If your husband or boyfriend is like mine, he's got tees from 1982 that are literally held together by THREADS and he refuses to let me throw them away. Uuugh. Needless to say, I am pumped to make something for him (and clear some shelf space).
