A Winter Saturday of Sewing & Creating!....

Saturday, January 10, 2009

Which one should I make first?....

"Saturday Morning"!....Oh! I love those two words!...They hold such possibilities!....For me though, they offer "time",..... "time" to get started on my commitment to get back to all my "sewing & quilting"! ...With the holidays & all they entail, I found myself with little time to devote to either of these pastimes.....So now I am so looking forward to a weekend of hiding out in my sewing room,.... & spreading out my fabrics, sorting through all my patterns, for clothes & quilts....& deciding which projects to begin first!.....

I must make a batch of these adorable "berries"!.....
Like many of you, I have far more "ideas" than time,... but that is so not going to stop me!....This last week, I began working on a exciting new decorating project for my dear friend, Susie. Susie & her husband just bought a beautiful home in the hills surrounding San Diego.....They are wanting to "update & redo" it to reflect their own design esthetics,.... so my partner Lauren & I have been two busy girls coming up with the "master plan"!....So needless to say, with all the attention we have been putting into choosing floors, coming up with room schematics & shopping for fixtures & furniture, .....spending Saturday, "quietly sewing" is just what I need!

And charmingly beautiful "bed-linens"....All my rooms are crying out for some of these pretty ideas!....
So Friends, enough blogging!....I wish you all a wonderful winter weekend!......Off to get a large mug of peppermint tea & up the stairs I go!.....Look out fabric!...here I come!.....

Beautiful and I hear you! I am so wanting to get back to my creative things, quilting being one of them. I hope to do that after next week!

What gorgeous pictures. I LOVE the red quilt on the right in the first pic. Where did you get the pattern for the strawberries? Or did you design them yourself? I think I must make some of those (yet another project to add to the growing list).
Yes, I agree: Saturday morning holds such promise. Isn't it nice to have that time with no commitments? I spent my Saturday morning getting my hair done. So, maybe Saturday evening will be my time!

Sorry - I didn't mean to post that last one anonymously. I must have clicked a button...?

I think it is great you are getting back to your "crafty" side! I do this every few months! It feels so good. Enjoy and create!!

Hedi, your berries are very cute. Time is a prescious thing when we don't have much to spare. I love the yoyo pillow cover.

Hugs...Jeanne

Good morning Heidi I wish I was as creative as you are. I would not know where to start. I have great ideas. What I would give to be able to sew like that.
Have a great day.

I love that yoyo pillow. I'm in a sprucing up mood.

I haven't heard from you in forever. I hope you are doing well. You haven't disowned me, have you? ;-)
