Lately I have been feeling as though I have lost my sewjo. Whether it has been because of the projects I'm sewing (some colours and fabrics just do not inspire me) or the amount of sewing I have been doing for Christmas and various swaps, I don't know. Anyhoo, last night while the family were at Scouts, I decided to be brave and cut into my beautiful Liberty fabrics. Miss B has taken permanent loan of my current needle book, so I am making myself a new one.
Utilising some vintage embroidered linen that belonged to my Gran, some soft denim scraps and some favoured prints, I started sewing. I had no real plan as to the design of the exterior, so it is not just QAYG but also design as I go. So far two thirds of the exterior have been completed. I have a busy week work wise, so this will be a slow selfish sewing project. Perhaps as a reward for completing some of the items I am procrastinating on.
I survived that heart stopping moment of the first cuts into my Liberty, and am now wondering, if I should be keeping all scraps of it. How small is too small to be useful?
