What Can I Say?


Clutch and I are at the cottage surrounded by quite a bit of my fabric stash and yet I've sewn very little.
I haven't even pulled out the So Sew Easy Bag to work on the Pretty Pocket I want to add to the lining for the first Twist on the pattern.

As my boys would say - "What's up with that"?

What can I say? I guess I better change the blade in the rotary cutter and get busy. Clutch needs a new cover for the seat on his booster chair. Yes, the little man sits with us at the table when we eat.
I won't show you the ugly rust color piece of vinyl that's been on the chair for 20 years. I can't believe I didn't do something about this before but then again, I haven't had a boy who jumped up on the chair and slid off the other side either.

Traverse City is the cherry capitol of the world and hosts the National Cherry Festival every year so I think I'll use this cute cherry print for the seat and add a ruffle made from the black and white polka dot.

It should be cute with the Mary Engelbreit cherry dishes I got in Shipshewana a few years ago.

I have been thinking about quilting though.
I've drawn quite a few little applique designs to add to the Midget Blocks.

and I have the applique almost finished on one of them. I'll post a new design this week.

    So glad to hear what projects you’ve been working on! I hope the hand has healed completely. Little Clutch will look adorable on his newly covered dining chair. Love the Mary Englebreit prints!
    Hope you have a great day!-Myra

    I am looking forward to seeing the chair done! I would have no idea how to do it! And I am looking forward to new midget blocks. The drawings are interesting!

    I would love to see the chair when finished! Also, I am looking so forward to the new midget blocks. I am glad I “stumbled upon” your web site. Thanks for all you have done here.

    I can’t wait to see how you do the chair seat. I love the fabrics you picked out.
