Spending time by the Sewing Machine

Mom's pillows I’m working on a TV-sofa quilt in pink inspired by a quilt I saw online. It’s a lot of work but fun. While I’ve been spending time with mom in her sewing room we are both creating a lot of different small projects.

I cut out fabric last week for a couple of pillows that mom then sewed together for her TV-sofa. She made big bows for her pillows, something she loved and something I would’ve never done. She has very big pieces of these three different furniture fabrics in her stash, so it’s still a lot left after she made these pillows. First project from the leftovers was a little knitting tote, this is how mine looks:

What do you think?

I took my flowery tote outside to take these photos with my mom’s compact camera, and as you can see spring was coming around with flowers and hope for summer. Then just one day later it started to snow and it’s been snowing a lot during Easter too. The weather is strange, but it’s a good thing when the sky is gray on a day like this, you don’t need to feel bad when you stay in mom’s sewing room making log cabin pillows and carving stamps! More about that soon. Now I’m off to have coffee and watch a movie in bed.

Winter in March

Take care!

    I love the big, bold colours of your tote. So bright, fun and funky! :)

  6. Love the tote. Am jealous of the snow. It is beautiful here, today, but it’s just been so blahhh with no nice snow to show for it all winter long. Virginia really has no idea what climate it wants to be in so it wavers all winter long. Drives me nuts.
