First of Many


The first pillow is done. I have a bunch more to go but the first is always the hardest. I had some angst with the sewing machine which was misbehaving. Then I did the sensible thing and dragged out the manuel. It seems that when I put in a different needle for the heavier fabric I put it in back to front. After fixing that things went much better. Always check the manuel. It will save you a lot of swearing.

I know what you're thinking. You're surprised by the fabric choice. Recently I've found myself attracted to more traditional, more romantic prints and colors. They feel warm and soft and sensual. It's probably my closet romantic coming out. Next thing you know I'll be buying floral print skirts and poet's blouses.

I'm not shocked...you have des fleurs de champagne tattoed on your shoulder. If that's not romance-inspired, I don't know what is.

I love the fabrics, very classic patterns. I'm looking now for curtain fabric for the bedroom. I should take a picture of the crazy quilt I bought and see if I can get some suggestions.

The other room I need to curtain is the kitchen. My future kitchen will have white appliances, black and white checkboard floor...I am thinking with my new lapis lazuli colored earthenware of doing a white and blue backsplash. Maybe blue and white curtains? I was thinking of Sturbridge Plaid, but it's a little too beige...

I do like the fabric. I do not like poet's shirts, though, please don't start wearing those.
