Design Wall Monday

Thanks to Judy at Patchwork Times I get inspired every Friday to try and get SOMETHING done on my sewing machine. This weekend - with over 2 feet of snow to shovel - I thought I might not have time - but in the end - it only took 3 hours of shoveling to get out to the road - and with no swim meets or swim practices to attend - I had an entire weekend at my disposal !

First - catch up on a block of the month. Not real sure why I started with the BOM, but since it only has one more month left - I'll finish it. It'll make a great last minute gift next year !


Then - my first attempt at real applique - first I traced all the pieces on "Wonder Under" - it's the first time I've used this product - this part went really easy




Then match the pieces with the correct fabrics - I stopped there - need to pick up some vinyl at Joanns - unless I order it online - but Mona wants new curtains to go with her new bedding - so we'll probably hit the bricks and mortar store this week. I think she deserves it - first she helped me shovel all weekend - then she whipped up this dinner Saturday night - spinach and tomato linguini with shrimps, clams and scallops - with stuffed mushrooms on the side ! Recipes for both will be posted later - both were excellent. Tonight I'm making a peanut butter/chocolate cheesecake as a surprise for everyone - because I just found out - no school tomorrow !!! More time to sew !!




Yep - even with all the snow to shovel this past weekend - I finally found time to get my sewing machine dusted off.

What is the applique going to be? Looks like there might be some birds' feet in there. I love doing fusible web applique, and McKenna Ryan patterns.

I love fusible applique too-machine blanket stitched. The food looks incredible, I just ate dinner or I'd be drooling on my keyboard! Enjoy your day off sewing!
