SEWjo Saturday is back! I hope everyone is having a productive summer and some good times with family and friends!
This week I was able to sew a new ironing board cover that was desperately needed. I had to give up my all time favorite, now out of print, Alexander Henry Paloma Birds cover ( CRYING ) but replaced it with this fun cathedral windows Patty Young fabric I found at Joann's a few months ago. One of those, "I love it and had better buy yardage now" purchases. So happy I did since I cannot imagine an unhappy looking ironing board. And I cleaned up my space some too! It was so needed!
The before and after shots. It was time for sure!
The other thing I worked on was The Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilt. This one had me paralyzed! I have never done a traveling quilt and when I sew improv for others I kinda freak out. It is hard to know what someone else likes and dislikes. My goal for this was beauty. The decision was made to make it modern and colorful!
I hope she loves it!
The incentive this week will be an Aurifil Sample set. This set contains each of the thread weights available and a wooden spool of Aurifloss! The color of the set I am sending will be a very light gray :o)
Let's get our SEWjo (sewing mojo) going! This link up will be open the WHOLE WEEKEND to give you LOTS of time in case you need to do silly other stuff like make dinner or driving your kids somewhere and then there is always making sure you have good lighting.
