SewConnected – October


Ritas block
Originally uploaded by parkcitygirl

I spent last evening completing this block for Rita of our SewConnected group :) The colors of the fabric and the change of season happening around me inspired me to make this forest block, with a little bunny foo-foo that Rita embroidered. I had a plan originally to make a simple block but as I was falling asleep last week – this popped into my head! My original wasn’t exciting and so I kept putting it off for something else. This inspired and challenged me! It was lots of fun to make :)

It feels like the weekend, with Ella out of school. . . our plans to go camping have been thwarted by runny noses and coughs. Hopefully everyone will be up to a little outdoor adventure soon!

Today we went to Costco, where I was able to return my current sewing machine, no problem, (I love Costco) now the difficult machine decision is coming to a head! Thankfully I have a little Janome Jem to get me through this in between time :)

    That is so cool! Love it. Sorry about your kids; that’s such a bummer. Mine too have been sick off and on for a month now. Just when I think it’s passed, it comes on again! Ugh!! :)

    That block is so wonderful! It’s just so creative. I could go on using exclamation points about this block all day…and I didn’t realize costco sold sewing machines. Hmmmm….

    I love the colors you chose. That bright red mixed with the muted green and gold really makes it pop!

    That little bunny in the trees is sweet and clever. The orange colors really catch my eye too. Fun! Hooray for inspiration!
