For me that meant making time to sew something just for me. Not something for a workshop, or for a pattern, or for a present, something for fun! After all, isn't that why we started sewing in the first place ? It's easy to forget at times. Easy to push forward, but much harder to pull back!
I started with some Color Brigade fabric from Jennifer Paganelli. I just love it's vibrancy, and those florals! Above is the Sewmiriam Handy Ziptop bag I made.
Here is the other side
Then I pulled out some 'vintage' Jennifer Paganelli fabrics and added those to the mix, using my go to favourite log cabin block and made a few of those ( an Amy Butler found its way in too!)
I am not sure where these are headed yet, but I think a gorgeous free range scrappy quilt is emerging. What do you think? I know its bright, bold and quirky, but there in lies its charm. This style is always a winner for me.
Go on, indulge!
Happy sewing, love Miriamx
