Wednesday WIP

 photo from:  http://www.randomthoughtsdoordi.com/





Every sewing machine should have a pretty cover and my new machine is no exception.  Inspired by the fabulous cover Diane received from Liz in a Sew Sew Modern 3 Swap, I thought I would make one for myself.  Using various low volume fabrics, linen, some Notting Hill and other co-ordinating fabrics I have started my creation.  So far I have made some paper pieced Tallahassee Blocks, some flying geese blocks and pieced various sized squares together.  I still don't really know what it will look like, but it will co-ordinate with the fabric bowls I have made for my sewing desk.

Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  11. I have yet to make a machine cover and really, really should. The FQ bundle of Notting Hill has collected dust for nearly a year now, shameful I know!
