A Little Mess

by Karen on August 12, 2012

in Kindle Books, quilts

I normally show photos of my sewing area when it is clean – some of you have commented in the past that they have never seen my sewing room messy – well here it is Smile you can barely even see the table right now!

The sewing machine is just sitting up there right now because I intend to make some flannel drawstring pants so I hadn’t put the machine back in its bag when I finished the quilt top the other day.  I needed my computer/sewing table back to being a computer table for now so the sewing machine was put up on the side table there.  Flannel is cut out but it is all folded up for now and on top of the cutting table right now along with the two books I had tucked under the sewing machine so it would be at the right height when in the Sew Ezi Table.  I had enough flannel left over to make a short dropped sleeve top to go with the pants – we will see how that goes – I normally do not make clothing!

I thought about sewing today but somehow I have spent more time reading than sewing!  I found another free book on kindle that I downloaded and I started to read – nice and light reading – nothing heavy – make sure you check the price first if you want it, the free part doesn’t always last long.

Love Will Find A Way

I think I will get the pants made tomorrow instead or this evening – then the top if I am feeling really energetic – right now I think I will also dye these after I make them – white gets so dirty – maybe a hunter green or a blue – leave the top white or a different shade? Pants for sure are getting dyed.

I don’t think you need to rush to finish those flannel pants, weather-wise that is. lol I like the idea of dying them though …. well, I would have to do that because I have two black dogs! Also I wanted to tell you how great those cross blocks are looking. It really makes a difference in how they look when you lay them out together. Nice!

White pants never lasts – lol. I have one pair white fleeze pants and after one day it is dirty, because the cat always wants to sit on my lap – just as if he knows the pants are clean! :) Dyeing them will be great. Flannel is out in the shops here this time of the year, don’t easily get it during the heat of the summer. I usually don’t sew clothes anymore, but you gave me something to chew on…. :) Good to see your sewing area messy – lol! :)

Thanks for the book tip. I enjoy reading before I go to sleep to wind down a bit.
