Christmas Detox

I’ve barely touched my machine in 2 weeks. I did learn how to make some pillows and that was fun. It’s always good to have new skills in your arsenal. You never know what will come up. A cool pillow might just save the day or at least bring a smile to a friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

A new ceiling light was installed in my sewing room and you can’t even imagine the HUGE difference it is going to make. The colors on the quilt tops that I have hanging up are so much more vibrant than what the construction grade light was showing. This picture shows the room just after the light was installed. I failed to take a before picture as I didn’t realize the difference was going to be so incredible.

In addition to the light I received a few gifts to keep my obsession going. They include a couple of quilt books, some fabric bundles, and a Joann’s gift card.

I’ve only briefly scanned through the 2 books and am starting to get inspired. I have a ton of fabric to work with so I should have a very productive year.

I started cutting into the Simply Style Charm Packs for the Simply Charmed quilt. I think the color combos with the sketch floral grey will work really well together.

I’m happy to be at my sewing machine again.

    Know how you feel about being back at your sewing machine – nearly two weeks for me too – not good! I’m waiting for VQR to be released in the UK so am interested to see what you make especially as you have such fabby fabrics. Visiting from Sunday Stash ๐Ÿ™‚
